I have old house where the ash and pine floors have never been refinished. I do not want to cover the wood with hard shiny polyurethane. What can you recommend as finish that will protect and bring out beauty of natural wood without giving it that bowling alley look?
I was thinking shellac as sealer followed by rub on varnish, but I don’t know if this would be the best solution.
Any ideas and suggestions would be most welcome.
