Hardwood Floor Patch

I had a couple of half walls taken down and the floors underneath where the walls were have been patched (it's red oak). I want to know if it is possible for me to just re-finish this patched area (or with a little overlap) as opposed to having the entire downstairs refinished. If it is possible, how would I go about doing it?



Thanks!
Steve

Is the old flooring stained? If so, you'll have to do that. If not, do you know what finish is on it?

Generally it's difficult to just finish a portion of a floor. If you can get the stain and/or gloss to match about the best you can do would be to finish individual boards. Any overlap onto another board will show! Pics might be helpful - http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...-pictures.html
