I am in the process of refinishing some wood floors.
I have read that if the desired result is a satin or semi gloss sheen- that it is good to use gloss polyeurethane for the first 2 coats and then switch to a satin or semi gloss. This is because the gloss eurethane is harder and helps to prevent the muddy look that using multiple coats of satin poly can cause. (I am using oil based by the way)
I just wondered if anyone here has tried this and if this is in fact a good idea.
Also, i wondered how having the 2 coats of gloss affects the look of the final coat.
If I use satin at the end, will the floors look satin? Or somewhere in between gloss and satin?
