First home or starter apartment? Even if your rooms are small, a beautiful wood floor can turn your place into a comfortable, inviting showplace in almost no time at all. The new owners of this small city brownstone recognized the big potential in their time-worn oak floors. Years of neglect, plus grime tracked through the ground-level door, had left the old floors worn and lifeless. So the homeowners turned their attention to refinishing their floors.
A thorough sanding took off the wear and tear from decades past, leaving the floor ready for staining. Two coats of Minwax® Wood Finish™ Dark Walnut gave it deep, rich, long-lasting color. Then came three coats of Minwax® Polyurethane for Floors in a semi-gloss sheen that catches the light from the French doors by day, and from the fireplace by night. Now, the beautifully refurbished floor anchors the room and gives it a rich sense of style.
