Refinishing hardwood floors

Posted by Erin on October 3rd, 1999 08:43 PM


I am moving into a house that has hardwood flooring in both bedrooms. Here are my problems:

1. In the main bedroom the floor is bare hardwood but is really faded and stained. I would like to refinish it to give it an even dark wood color.

2. In the second bedroom someone has at one time put a carpet down over the hardwood. It is really cheap carpeting with no mat underneath. It has just been glued onto the wood. I have been told that I will have to scrape the glue off and then refinish it.

I dont know where to start, as I have never had anything to do with hardwood floors and cannot afford to have somebody in to do it for me. Would anyone be able to give me some ideas or pointers on how to start and what the best way to do this will be?

Thank you.
