We closed on our fixer upper house last friday and have started working on it. I keep seeing more and more work that needs done but have found some nice surprises along the way. We were scraping the layers upon layers of old wallpaper off and found a wormy chestnut wall. Took up some of the crappy parquet(sp?) floor and found hardwood underneath-painted, but I'm going to refinish it. Took up some more of the crap in another room today and found oak under it that's in great condition-unstained, varnished or just generally screwed up-I can't wait to see it refinished. That's the upside of things-I don't even want to start on some of the other things we've found so far. I'm just tickled pink to be getting my hardwood floors. So, if any of you have good refinishing tips please pass them on.
