The Great Hall Makeover Part 1

We decided a couple days ago to tackle the floors in our massive hall. After a trip to two home improvement stores plus a tool store, I finally got underway about 1 pm. I really had some ambitious plans today. It didn’t help that the stain color we did the rest of the house in was discontinued…along with the brand of polyurethane that I love. Argh! Lots of reading cans, looking at color samples and deliberating later, I came home with some stuff I think will match pretty well.

Here are the pics from the day. I’ll finish staining the other side tomorrow and maybe poly Monday or Tuesday.

Cleaned all the stuff out the hall.

Sanded with a high grit, down to a low grit.

Cleaned all the powdery dust. This is the most annoying part. I have to sweep several times, mop, tack cloths, the whole nine yards.

PS: Right after this pic, I told fuzzy to get off my floor!
