The Floor boards were old 18 century oak. I sanded them using a large belt sander as it was a small room and there were lots of undulations that can be reached with smaller tools. Probably took 2mm off. Finished with Auro 129 2 in 1 oil wax impregnation 2 coats.
This room was originally wall papered. We removed all the wall paper, re-plastered a wall and did a lot of preparation/restoration. The walls were painted with two Earthborn paint colours. Poset below the girding darker than the white above and also behind the shelves. This with a auro white -260 on the girding, shelves, skirtings and windows. This gave the room a subtle combination of soft colour and a bright and fresh feeling. The air quility in the room was noticeably fresher without the wall paper and had a light smell of orange oil.
We also cleaned and treated the floor with Auro one off oil -wax, No 125. We polished this with a buffer that had a lambs wool pad after it had dried. It looked Brilliant.
The Upstairs room
Paper stripped back and needed total re-plaster. We used a final coat lime plaster, this helped draw moisture out of a wet wall and gave a mat stony appearance to the walls. Auro 321 soft cream on the walls with silk white on skirtings, beading, windows and auro 321 white on celing . The room had subtle soft colours and textures and noticeably cleaner air.
