Q: My apartment (rental) was built in the 1880's and the floor has never been renovated - the uneven wood floors are painted white and have cracks and large gaps between them…
I have always loved my floor but now I am pregnant and while I may cover the floor in the bedroom I am trying to find a way to fix the cracks & holes (some as big as 1 to 2 inches wide) without having to spend a ton of money - or putting down a whole new floor. My boyfriend just wants to put some sort of tape over the cracks and paint over them - he says the holes are too big to use wood filler.
