I don't have any pictures of the drywall going up or the mudding. So this is what the room looked like while the drywall was being sanded.
Next up are the floors. These are solid oak floors that are original to the house. They have not been refinished in over 30 years. Surprisingly, they were still in pretty good shape. There were a few small spots that needed sanding and of course, it wasn't very waterproof anymore.
Being the novices that we were, Mr. DIY sanded the entire room with a 1/4 sheet palm sander...with 3 different grits. It took a long time. He also didn't wear any knee pads. *gasp*
Testing out a spot in the corner.
The room completely sanded (by hand) and ready for a clear coat of poly.
And finally, the completed room (minus the trim around the floor)
