I'm considering putting an offer in on a house that is a fixer upper. I'd like to keep the original (1945) hardwood floors but am concerned about their condition.
The floor has a large bare spot in the middle of the room where it looks like the stain and varnish have been worn away leaving the bare wood exposed. Other parts of the room have large black spots (2-3 feet long).
My goal is to sand the floors so they are no longer a darker wood color and then re-stain them a light maple or a natural tone like sand.
Is this possible with these floors?
