I've since removed the carpet as my spouse is adamant on having me restore the wood but I don't know how to make this look good.
I've tried using a belt sander and it makes it look smoother but doesn't get rid of the burn marks or the white marks which is presume is wood filler or white paint.
I've attached an image to show you exactly what it looks like. If you guys could provide some tips that'll be really helpful *
I've seen youtube tutorials on people restoring wood but there's doesn't look as bad as mine lol
Do I paint or varnish this? If I varnish it would it cover all the paint marks and burns? I have so many questions
