I dont recommend pulling carpet up and having to remove6000 staples from a floor.
I had to lay on the floor like a beached whale to get all the staples out.
And when I thought it couldnt get worse, then I had to start taking down wallpaper borders, that where glued on top of each other.
eh.I ripped every piece of molding off except the casing around the windows.I even threw out the closet doors, give me another build to try to make a set of closet doors and install the hardware.
So I got to looking at the floor.
Its the original floor installed when the house was built back in 1948.
There are no other original floors in the house, they were all ruined by glueing tiles or other flooring over them.
I was going to install a maple floor in this room, but I started thinking.
Its a bit nostalgic, a floor thats 65 years old, maybe I should just have someone come in and sand and refinish it. Keep something in the house original.
Take a look, what do you think? keep it or floor over it?
(it was much cleaner until I starting ripping down wall paper today, made a mess all over the place, just swept up, didnt clean the floor)
I believe its common oak flooring.
