This floor is wood, but in bad repair. It was stained and varnished on three sides and painted gray and brown in other areas. I have debated back and forth as in varnishing or painting and decided to paint. First I am sanding off the old stain and varnish with a hand sander. Then I will paint the floor with white premier and then paint it a med light green. I intend to do the woodwork in a cream color and then put up off-white mini blinds and double curtain rods so I can have white sheer curtains, as well as, dark jade curtains. This project should not take as long as the bedroom as the sanding part is easy. Plan to add pictures as I go along so you can see beginning to end. Everyone is into the hardwood look but I can not do the heavy duty sanding with all the dust and then breathing in the varnish fumes. So I hope I can get this project done and have a nice living room soon. Any thoughts or ideas are welcome. Maybe I should make youtube video's as that is where I go to learn how to fix things. lol Like redoing the glaze on storm windows, oh, but that is another post.
