This is what your floors might look like if you pulled up some indoor/outdoor carpet and sanded and scraped the gluey reside until your hands bled and you were certifiably crazy.  Olivia thought she had met her match once she realized there was no way her floor would ever be perfectly smooth, no matter how many sanding disks she burned through. So she threw in the towel.  And when I say towel, I actually mean sheets of MDF that she primed and painted and sealed and checkered! HA! Who’s the boss now, gluey gross floor?!  See the whole darn process on her blog He Hunts, I Create.

    Genius and much better than trying to battle a gross, uneven floor.
