Hi, I wonder if anyone can help?
We're about to have our floors professionally sanded and varnished, a in the small bedroom upstairs there is an old hearth in front of a boarded-up fireplace. It is tiled, but some of the tiles are missing and have been filled-in with concrete.
What would be a suitable way of restoring the hearth just so it looks ok when the floors are sanded? Options I thought of are:
1. removing the remaining tiles and levelling the hearth and then painting.
2. removing the remaining tiles and concrete and re-tiling
I basically need a fairly easy and cheap way of smartening it up. If I do need to chip out the old concrete (about a 6-inch square area) would I need some kind of power tool to do this (I have a power drill)?
