Last post I left off with ripping up the first layer of laminate flooring
and the second layer of oak flooring.
During the process we found an old return air vent hole that needed to be repaired.
Once all of the nails were removed and floor repairs were made we were ready to rent a floor sander.
The sanding process always takes twice as long as you think it will. For that reason, we decided to do this room separately from the living/dining room so we could keep at least one area dust free during the process.
We both really like the look of unfinished natural wood so we decided to go with Bona Naturale floor finish. According to their website, "with Bona Naturale, you get as close to an utreated look and feel as possible while still providing your floor with a durable surface." We used the sealer before the finish to bring out the natural colour and grain of the wood.

Today we are rolling on the last coat of Bona Naturale but we are already so happy with the results.

Next up, white plank walls and trim to finish this room so that we can have a place for all of our friends to stay this summer.
