My wife and I decided the other day to begin the process of restoring the hardwood in an unused upstairs bedroom in our house. We started by pulling off one corner to check the condition of the floor and to see if the floor was thick enough to handle a sanding. Everything looked good (except for an abundance of paint splattering), so the next day pulled the rest of the carpet and padding off the floor, only to find this trouble spot on the other side of the room. At first we were thinking this would be a great spot for an area rug, but now we're starting to think that it wouldn't be good to do all that work refinishing the wood only to leave an eyesore like that as-is. I'm wondering how much work ($$) would be involved in having this trouble spot repaired by a professional, since I don't think I could do this sort of thing myself. Could the matching wood from the closet in that room be harvested in some way or will new board need to be used in the replacement. If anybody has any experience with this sort of thing, some advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
