My photo does not do this justice, and was taken before I put on all the coats, but at least you can see how the screen door is reflected by the polish on this very old floor. The shine is so glossy that it looks like it is resin coated. This is where I drag my golf bag in from the outdoors and if it is raining, maybe I step on this in my wet and muddy golf shoes as well. It is an entry way that needs to stand up to a lot of abuse.
Since the floor polishing product I used said not to use it on wood, we will see how it holds up over time, but so far it is awesome and definitely up to wet feet, which it certainly was not before. In fact, it looked a wood in a barn floor. That bad!
It is inexpensive and easy to apply, so if I mess it up the fix will probably be easy. All this month I have done little other than steam cleaning carpets, yanking up ikky old carpet, pulling out tacks and staples from the subfloor, pounding in nails, and putting down vinyl tiles. Whew! Gotta love being retired.
