You know when you have one of those weeks, that everything you touch turns to dirt. Well hello week of dirt, I have finally met you! Let us explore what not to do when it comes to 81 year old floors, or , er…wood floors in general.
Swiffer Wet was the culprit in this scenario. A Swiffer Wet was left on the wood floor over night. The wet pad saturated the wood leaving a rather dark spot. So we figured we would lightly buff it out….
Ahhh! My heart dropped. Joey’s heart dropped. I don’t know what we expected. We were sanding the top layer of our floor off. Duh. It was going to be raw. But grey? Eww…
So the next step? Stain it, right? Color match the preexisting wood and it will look perfect, right? Right? I kept telling myself that. So we bought a small can of Minwax and color matched it to our preexisting floor…
So with a brush Joey lightly painted the stain on the raw wood, and noticed it looked awfully dark.
So we panicked again, and wiped wiped wiped. And now we are back to having a dark spot.
And with that we bring you our week of major fails! Check back this week to see what not to do when you are painting curtains, garlic growing gone terribly wrong, and a leaky window. After that we will be back with a bunch of stuff done right!
