This wooden floor was restored using Ronseal Varnish
Old wooden floorboards can make a fantastic rustic feature in any home if restored correctly. It’s easy to do, first sand the floor until you have removed a previous coating or dirt. Then make any repairs to the timber, preferably using timber of about the same age (Quick tip, you can always take a floorboard up from under the carpet in a different room and replace it with new, then use the old board in the room you’re working in).
Once at this stage, it’s about getting rid of the dust. Vacuum your floorboards and then wipe with a tact-cloth. Allow any airborne dust to settle, then wipe again with a tact cloth.
That’s your prep completed. Apply a thin coat on Ronseal Varnish to seal your floorboards. A quick sand-down will get your floor smooth. This step will prevent splinters going forward. Then simply de-dust again, and finish off with another two coats of Ronseal Floor Varnish.
