The dining room floor is revealed! After filling two mugs to the brim with nails and producing a large scrap pile of vinyl, linoleum, and paneling on the porch, we are down to beautiful bare wood. The coloring is very uneven due to wear, sun, and finish differences, but other than the mysterious dark spot, the floor is in very fine shape. A light sanding and new protective coat should be all that is needed. Thanks to my darling husband ("the nail whisperer"), we knocked this project out in just a few sessions. Now it's on to the kitchen, which appears to have all the same layers plus an additional sheet of linoleum or two directly on the wood!
