I currently have a hardwood floor that is worn down by an office chair and it needs to be fixed, optimally without having to do the whole floor with a floor sander.
As you can see in this photo:
the area to the top right is worn, in some places down to the wood. This is a close-up photo of the center:
It's 80% bare wood with little stain.
(on a side note, if you have an office chair on a hardwood floor, you should probably get a floor covering of some sort)
My objective is not necessarily to fix it perfectly, but to get it to look good enough to satisfy the landlord when we leave. I was planning on: buying a very light stain and applying it via light spray to the central area, repeating until the color was uniform with the rest of the floor, and then coating with some semi-gloss.
Is this a feasible solution for my problem? Any ideas or suggestions?
