Choosing a finish
I am debating whether to just remove the varathane and re-wax, but donâ€™t really want to have to re-wax each year. I was also considering maybe a tung oil finish. I have 3 big dogs that are in and out of the house all day long.
Choosing light or dark stained floors
I wanted really dark floors. Dark walnut. He said I wouldn't like it and didn't want to go that dark. I've always had light, natural floors, and wanted a complete change this time....
