Rescue Old Wood Floors by Plugging Them Up

Removing old heaters can leave large holes in your wood floors. Fill these holes by using a plug cutter and you’ll never notice a difference.

Solid wood floors are a beautiful benefit of living in an old home, but many times they are marred by large holes near the baseboards that are left from the removal of old heaters and plumbing.

To properly fill these holes, you need a plug cutter, a drill and some spade bits or hole saws. It’s also helpful if you can scrounge up a piece of replacement wood to cut the plug from. Check out Old Town Home for the full instructions below.
