Stained Finish 9



REMOVING THE OLD FLOOR COVERINGS


CARPET STILL DOWN THE HALL


A SLAB OF CONCRETE UNDER THE KITCHEN BENCHES


ENTRANCE WAY IS HARDWOOD, WHEREAS THE REST OF THE HOUSE IS BALTIC PINE


ONE RUGGED LOOKING KITCHEN FLOOR


CLEAR FINISH SHOWS THE COLOUR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HARDWOOD AND PINE


CAREFULLY REMOVING A LARGE SECTION OF THE CONCRETE SLAB


SOME REPLACEMENT BOARDS HAVE BEEN GLUED IN


COLOUR SAMPLES TO HIDE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO TIMBERS


BEGINNING TO SAND DOWN THE REPAIRED SECTION


THIS FLOOR IS RIDDLED WITH STAPLES AND OLD GLUE


ONCE THE STAPLES HAVE BEEN PULLED OUT THE GLUE IS SANDED OFF



THERE!  ALL CLEAN READY TO FINE SAND


BLOODY LOT OF NAIL HOLES


WHICH REQUIRES A SHIP LOAD OF PUTTY


THE STAINING GETS UNDER WAY


COULDN'T WAIT TO GET SOME COLOUR ONTO THIS BIT


ALL COMING TOGETHER NOW


MISSED A BIT


SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WET AND THE DRY STAIN


AT LAST.  THAT WAS THE FINAL STRIP OF STAIN.

SECOND COAT IN A BED ROOM


SECOND COAT BEING ROLLED ON


SECOND COAT OF TWO PACK IN THE KITCHEN


LOOKING THROUGH FROM THE ENTRANCE TO THE LOUNGE


ENTRANCE WITH THE FINAL COAT


FINAL COAT DRY


THE STUBBIE HOLDER GIVES THE CAMERA SOMETHING TO FOCUS ON, OTHERWISE THE
FLASH JUST WASHES OUT THE COLOUR.



LOUNGE LOOKING THROUGH TO THE DINING AND ENTRANCE



A STUBBIE HOLDER ALSO GIVES MANY A GOOD MAN SOMETHING TO 
FOCUS ON DURING A HARD DAYS WORK.
