    Cool wood floor old finish

    My wood floor is in good shape,can i brush a stain/polyurathane on to protect and cheaply finish it? Will it look ok? Im not looking for new refinished look, my home is kind of rustic anyhow. If anyone knows thanks

    Ideally you need to sand it. It wouldn't hurt to try your approach in a small hidden area.

    You have to screen it first to rough up the old finish so the new poly will stick to the old poly. You can rent a random orbit floor sander at any rental center and get the screens that are designed to rough up the floor. You can not stain it unless you sand it down to bare wood.
