Finishing the Bathroom Floor and Focusing on the Trim

Seeing a project come together is one of the most gratifying aspects of DIY renovation.

This will give us the light finish that allows the natural character of the wood to be on display, rather than the stain and finish.

Once the floor’s sealer cured we were able to begin prepping for the Pall X-96 matte topcoat. Wendy and I have refinished several floors in our DIY career, and we’ve watched several pros finish a few floors too, and in almost every case, we’re somewhat intimidated by the finish. What happens if we leave streaks? What happens if it peels? What happens if it fractures? What happens if we let dirt or dog fur get into the finish?
