Not too long ago, I widened a doorway and installed French doors between our living room and family room. I was pleased with the way the project turned out, but there was a little repair work left to do afterward. When I removed a portion of the wall, I had to put in several new strips of flooring. This left me with two problems: the strips were slightly higher than the surrounding floor and they were unfinished. I needed to level the floor and then match the color of the finish. Here is the process I used.
