Sanding, sanding, sanding.
Finally it was time to apply the varnish! I toddled off to Bunnings and tried hard to match the colour of the floor in the living room from photos.
So far, so good. I was quite happy at this stage, even though the colour was slightly more orange than I wanted it was close.
However. It needed two coats, so once the first coat was dry, I started all over again.
But. It’s done! And it will be fine until such time as I can afford to get professionals in to do the whole house properly!
