1. Sand the floor down to bare wood using a floor sanding machine and edge sander, both of which can be rented; be sure to vacuum between sandings.

2. Wipe sanding dust from the floor using a cotton cloth dampened with mineral spirits.

3. Use a 4-inch paintbrush to apply a base coat of sealer around the perimeter of the room.

4. Next, use a synthetic floor-finish applicator to spread the basecoat sealer across the middle of the floor; allow the sealer to dry two hours.

5. Use a clean paintbrush and floor-finish applicator to apply a topcoat of water-based polyurethane to the floor.

6. Allow the polyurethane to dry at least two hours, then apply a second coat.

7. After the second topcoat has dried, apply a third and final coat of poly. good luck.
