Morrells system for staining and oiling victorian pine floors

by Chris Newson on June 6, 2013

So after trying to roll out the Osmo system which had worked well on the stairs into our cellar and having a major patchy mess on our hands, our builders Minton Young introduced us to a range of products by Morrells.

We went first for their light teak stain (they have a big range of colours),  and then their Induro floor oil which needs 2 coats with a light sand between.

Here is how it looks. . we love it so far. Which is lucky as we now have it on all halls and landings, and in our living room and old dining room.

I’ll let you know how it wears in.

I will also do another full post on, in my view, the perfect process of preparing and finishing a floor like this. because it is a right pain to do correctly and we have tried a few different ways now. And had some disasters en route!

and for mixing with the sawdust from the finest and final sand to fill in the really small gaps. .

and to glue in the antique wood fillets between the floor boards…
