Hi there,

I have been scouring the boards looking for threads regarding sanding wooden floors. More immediatly I can't decide whether I should decorate first or sand the floors, I have seen threads that support both ideas. I have a victorian house with rather rough floorboards through-out the downstairs. They have been exposed by the last owner, but they have done rather a rough job, with cracked boards, some holes and a rather uneven finish. The boards are also quite marked and need some attention.

So, should I sand them now and then attempt the walls and ceiling or the other way around.

Thanks for any help.

Imagine the following: you have sanded your floorboards to a new marvelous lustre.
Then you start decorating; dragging tools, large materials, ladders etc over the floor, dropping nails, tools on your floor, spilling paint on the floor.
Hmm, it's logic Jim, not rocket science.
