Watched some YouTube videos and it seems doable but just want advice from anyone who is knowledgable. The floor is very old and has gaps between the boards. I can’t tell if there are nails near the surface. Total area is about ~750 sq ft. Planned on drum sanding the floor and using a small hand sander for the edges and then maybe blending with an large orbital sander. Finish with a gray stain.
Do I need to fill in the gaps with something?
Will yellow pine wood take a gray stain?
How long will it take?
Is this a bad idea?
