The floors on this level of our home are much more used and show much more wear and tear. I saw on Pinterest one evening where a woman had refurbished a wooden desk with coconut oil, so I decided to try it on my hardwood flooring. I was pleasantly shocked at the results. And the reason I decided to refurbish them instead of refinish them is that the wood is now so thin, there’s really nothing left to sand off.
Here is the top of our stair landing where we shut the pups off when we have guests downstairs. So, there are more scratches from long nails and a lot of scuffling here. Enjoy the before and after photos.
So, refinishing or refurbishing hardwood floors just got a lot easier than when my Grandmother was on her knees with paste wax – and there’s hope for those than are worn thin. I’m sure a little extra buffing as the last step will preserve the work longer. More on that if I get that far.
It doesn't have to be expensive to prepare your home for sale. Sometimes a little coconut oil plus elbow grease will go a long way.
