Suggestions...floor help

Blog entry by MsDebbieP posted 12-26-2013 05:09 PM 4716 reads 0 times favorited 16 comments Add to Favorites Watch

We pulled up the carpeting in the dining room to uncover the original flooring I love the rustic look and the colours match beautifully with the walls and floor of the adjoining room
But

There are some splinters waiting to work loose and grab hold of feet.
What are my low cost, low effort and low “change” options to make the floor safe for feet

Are you planning on sanding it or just a quick paint job?

I didn’t want to have to sand off the current paint(s). I really like the worn-floor look but I’m not sure how to make it “splinter-safe” without sanding it.

If you have access to a buffer, give it a good scrub with an abrasive pad (not sandpaper). Then reseal the floor with several coats of low sheen polyurethane.

Beth has a great idea. The loose slivers will get jambed in the pad. Use a low abrasive pad at a slow speed. (Too high of a speed will burnish the old finish and make any topcoat difficult to adhere and lead to pealing.) You may have to stop now and then to clean/pick them out or have a few pads available to keep the slivers from scratching or burnishing shiny spots, i.e. circles, on the old finish. A matte finish top coat will seal in the patina.
If there are large loose foot stabbers, glue them down and set a weight on it before abrading. If any large chunks come loose, a little touch up with stain or paint thats a close match to the floor color will fix that.

Today is the day that we tackle the floor again. Not sure if we will get to the urethane stage but it will be close.

the floor is done and I absolutely love it … been walking on it with bare feet for a couple days now and no splinters :)

My daughter saw it for the first time today and she also loves it.

Thank-you everyone for your help!

We ripped up the carpet and pulled the million and one staples from three different floor coverings.
I swept the floor, vacuumed the floor, ran the dust mop over the floor, wet mopped the floor and when it. Was dry we put on a coat of fast drying clear satiin polyurethane. We let it sit for 6 hours and then applied another coat.
The next morning we put the quarter-round back on. And moved in the furniture. All cleared our, surfaced and re-furnished in two days.
And we love it!!!!

The view from my chair…. The dark spot was bare wood. Not sure why it had no patches of paint on it. But with the poly…it looks good

And here is the view from the old living room with its new flooring. Notice how the worn floor goes so nicely, in my opinion, with the laminate flooring as well as the wall that I had painted several years ago. How did I know that it wood look so good with the hidden floorboards.

Sorry about the rotated pix…not sure why the upload keeps putting my pix on their side.

Looks great Debbie! I’m sure the photos don’t do it justice.

There were some others on LJs that were having pics go sideways also. Glitch?

rsa, et Nike Air Max Sale nous ????? ????? d?mes camper, chaussure adidas pas cher afin de réparer un des patins, que adidas outlet le Pandora Store choc avait Nike Online Store endommagé.


Je fis cuire Nike Roshe Run le souper, fondre Kobe Shoes Nike de la glace pour cheap nike air max le café, et donnai günstige nike schuhe aux chiens nfl store leur patée, tandis que Cheap True Religion Jeans Lon Jordan Shoes Air travaillait au ugg factory outlet patin. Après quoi, nous réun?mes une provision louboutin heels de suivre un envoi branches Boutique Ugg mortes, pour Discount Ray Ban Sunglasses le Doudoune Moncler Femme Pas Cher feu Yeezy Boost Sale Online de la nuit, et, assis sur nos couvertures, nous f?mes sécher devant la Nike Shoes Online flamme Air max dam nos mocassins Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet fumants, piqués UGG Boots Cheap sur des batons, tout en allumant Adidas Superstar Sale Online notre pipe vespérale.


Ce fut Lon qui, à br?le-pourpoint, me Nike Air Max Cheap demanda Moncler Jackets Discount Marketplace :


— Tu ne UGG BOOTS FOR WOMEN la connaissais pas ?


Je fis de nike shoes la moncler jacket sale tête un signe négatif.


— Tu air force one pas cher as remarqué, sans doute, le Adidas Originals Sale flamboiement doré Pandora Outlet Store de sa Canada goose dam chevelure, l’éclat Nike Store de ses prada outlet yeux et nike air jordan pas cher la fra?cheur merveilleuse de sa botas de futbol peau. Elle donne Doudoune Moncler Site Officiel l’impression Nike Air Shoes de la cheap uggs for women première New Nike Shoes lueur, zapatillas nike baratas chaude et rosée, des rayons de Pandora Official Website l’aurore. D’où Nike Huarache Womens Cheap le Ugg Outlet Online Store nom qui Cheap Nike Free Run lui a été donné, de Adidas Shoes Discount Marketplace ? Braise d’Or ?. canada goose jackets on sale Jamais, rappelle-toi, tu Chaussure Nike Air Max Pas Cher n’as entendu Nike Polo Sale parler d’elle Nike Outlet Store ?


Je m’effor?ai Air Max 90 de réveiller mes souvenirs, qui demeurèrent confus et nébuleux. Official NHL Jerseys Ce Toms Factory Outlet nom Hugo Boss Sale ne m’était pas Zapatillas Nike Air Max Baratas tout à Nike joggesko fait inconnu, et pourtant Ugg boots Sale il ne Cheap Real Jordans m’apprenait rien de huarache sneakers précis.


— Braise d’Or, Ugg Pas Cher En France Braise nike tn pas cher d’Or… dis-je, Pandora Outlet enfin, Yeezy Shoes Discount Marketplace cela coach factory outlet online ressemble à TOMS OUTLET un nom de danseuse.


Lon secoua ADIDAS NMD SALE ON LINE la tête.


Nike Factory Store Tu The official UGG n’y es pas. Pas du Adidas Neo Discount Sale tout Stone Island Outlet ! fitflops sale uk C’était une femme… je ne sais Moncler Sale pas comment dire…


— Mais pourquoi parles-tu d’elle au passé, comme Cheap Toms Outlet Store si elle était Cheap True Religion Jeans morte ?


Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens à cause des ténèbres Vans Black Sneakers qui Nike Shox Cheap se sont étendues sur Nike Factory Outlet son ame Nike Air Sneakers et qui sont l’égal de la TOMS For Sale mort. Yeezy Men La Braise Official Toms Shoes Outlet d’Or que newest lebron shoes j’ai connue, que tout Dawson a pandora beads connue, womens nike air max n’est retro jordans for cheap plus de ce monde. Nike Shoes Sale Store Rien Cheap Air Max ne subsiste, longchamp bags on sale en la pauvre Louboutin Wedding Shoes folle Nike Roshe Run Sale que nous avons vue hier Cheap Nike Air Huarache soir, de l’ancienne Air Max Femme Braise d’Or.


— Et Dave Jordan Shoes For Cheap ? demandai-je.


— Dave avait Michael Kors Clearance construit Nike Air Women cette cabane, Toms Outlet Online pour elle et TOMS STORE pour lui. Lui TOMS SHOES OUTLET est mort. Elle l’attend là, Descuentos Nike toujours, car elle n’est canada goose jacket outlet pas Cheap Toms Shoes Outlet bien persuadée Adidas Yeezy Cheap qu’il ne Timberland Outlet soit plus. Mais Nike Air Max Goedkoop qui peut nike air sonder le Adidas Soccer Cleats Cheap tréfonds d’une vans shoe store ame perdue ? Peut-être Canada Goose Online Store croit-elle Canada Goose Outlet vraiment Pandora Store Sale qu’il n’est pas mort. ?????? ????? Ce Ugg Pas Cher Femme qui est certain, c’est qu’elle l’attend dans Adidas Originals Stan Smith cette Cheap Michael Kors Tote Bag cabane qu’il a christian louboutin outlet construite. Mais Cheap Air Max Trainers comment ressusciter ceux qui ne sont plus ? Je n’ai pas Air Max Pas Cher voulu la chagriner Boty Nike Air et Nike Soccer Cleats Boots j’ai Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 For Sale dit Cheap Nike Huarache comme Pandora Store elle. Et, Scarpe Air Max si chaussure basket homme Dave avait Discount Air Max soudain apparu, le plus Soccer Boots Outlet nike étonné, pour s?r, scarpe nike e?t été moi.


— Je Canada Goose Outlet ne comprends goutte à ton histoire. Christian Louboutin Heels Prends-la par le Hogan Outlet début et nike sneakers conte-moi Uggs For Cheap cela.


Lon Moncler Outlet Online Mac Fane parla ainsi Bottes Ugg Femme Pas Cher :


Nike Tn Requin Pas Cher Victor Chauvet était Cheap Michael Kors un ancien Fran?ais, New Air Max 2017Air Max Sneakers dans Coach Bags On Sale le Nike Shox discount Sale Midi de la France. Il vint en Adidas NMD For Sale Californie, à l’époque nike jordan shoes de Reebok Outlet Store la ruée vers l’or. Pandora Style Beads Non pas pour Nike Air Damen chercher de l’or, mais pour Discount TOMS y mettre du soleil Adidas Originals Superstar en Jordan Sneakers For Sale bouteilles.
