Refinishing

You would think that when you were finished with something, that would be it. Done. No more. Finished.

But that is not always true because there is something called refinishing. Finishing again. That is what I am doing today--refinishing the hardware floor in our dining room. When we first moved into our house 11 years ago, the living room carpet extended into the dining area. Not a good idea. So we tore out the carpet, installed an unfinished hardwood floor, and finished it with polyurethane.

That was 11 years ago. The floor has taken a real beating since then from the six of us who live here. So I rented one of those huge vibrating sanders and stripped off all of the old polyurethane and tried to smooth some of the nicks in the wood. Took me about 5 hours. I'm taking a break now while my wife is applying a wood sealer. After that dries when will put down three coats of Varathane, which is what they use on basketball floors.

Who in the world could possibly care about this?
