Arbocoat Protective Clear Coat
4 inch angle grinder with 50 grid sanding pad
black caulk
small brush to cut in the edges
roller with handle for stain

Step by Step Instructions

If you have a old plywood floor, it can be stained to look great.

Using a 4 or 4 1/2 inch angle grinder and a 50 grid sanding pad, sand the floor to remove old paint if necessary.

Use a vacuum cleaner to get the dust off the floor

Apply minwax in desired color to the entire floor. Use a small brush to cut in next to the wall and a roller to roll the entire floor.

If your floor needs quarter round along the baseboards, stain it to match the floor and install it.

Use black caulk to fill any seams or holes.

Apply clear coat on the entire floor. Wait for it to dry completely and then apply a second coat of clear coat.

Although this project does take some time, the end result is a beautiful rustic floor for a relatively small price. It's a great look for any rustic cabin or cottage.
