Antique heart pine is amazingly resilient, but restoring it has long been intimidating to me.
Over the last several months we got to see our house’s heart pine floors go through a true transformation when they were refinished, but they were largely in good shape already.
But today I want to share a little about the process of uncovering and restoring the heart pine hidden beneath layers of scratched and cracked tiles, old tar paper residue, and plywood on the floor of our first floor bathroom.
The downstairs bathroom at our house has seen a slow transformation since we moved in. The floral wallpaper, wobbly toilet, wonky pedestal sink, and damaged floor have seen better days.
