floor paint, paint floor

Posted by Eliz. Blodgett on August 28th, 1998 09:26 AM

My husband and I just bought a house built in 1909.
Terribly decorated, we ripped up the carpeting upstairs.
Unfortunately, somone had carelessly let paint fall
and drip as it pleased while they painted the walls.
Furthermore, some of the boards have molded and need to
be replaced.

My first question is, what is the easiest way to remove these
paint drippings (I also want to use the least noxious
chemicals and will sacrifice my time in order to do it)?

The second question is, I'm just plain scared to sand
the floors myself. It sounds like a lot of work for a
novice and risky too. I don't want to ruin the floors
in order to become an expert in sanding. I've been
thinking of painting the floors, perhaps stenciling a
border as well. Is this much easier? What is the process?

Thank you for your assistance.
