square where a rug was but all around this the varnish has worn
away/dulled. can i just varnish over it all in a darker shade or do i have
to move the old varnish first? would appriciate advice
And if you haven't, you best let your landlord know what you're
planning _before_ you do anything other than clean/polish existing
Nothing is liable to P-O a landlord than a renter doing some cobble-job
to his property w/o his knowledge and/or approval. Could get you a
bill to repair the whole floor professionally.
OTOH, if you know something about what you're actually doing, and talk
to the landlord, he may be willing to provide materials if you're
willing to do the labor (and take the consequences if screw it up).
Sure, you can just put a couple of coats of polyurethane, or you can do it
the right way and strip the floor. Since it is a rental, why not talk to
the landlord and either have him do something or at least agree to what you
want to do.
