A couple years ago, I removed the carpet from my bedroom and refinished the pine floors that were underneath. I decided to do the same with Jake’s old bedroom (currently, my office). Unfortunately, the product I used on my bedroom–which I really liked–is no longer available, so I had to go with something different this time (something I had used on furniture in the past, but not on floors). I really liked how my bedroom turned out, so I hope this works just as well.
Having done this twice throughout the house already, all of this is a temporary measure. The pine floors never hold up to the pets’ nails. My bedroom has fared pretty well, but the finish is definitely scratched in spots. Much like the rest of the house, I expect to cover these two rooms in laminate flooring down the road, so I’m hoping this buys me a few years. But, with the exception of some throw rugs, at least all of the carpeting is gone! Carpeting is disgusting.
