Need help with pine floor finishing?

Pine floors are very popular – sanding off old floor boards to reveal the beautiful figuring of wood can be most satisfying.  But when the sanding has been done, what do you do next?  The answer to that question depends on personal lifestyle and taste. 

If you don’t like the yellow / orange tone that pine goes, one choice is to use a dilute white dye (see our video, Keeping Wood Lighter) finished with Finney’s Trade Acrylic.  Or you can use Finney’s Trade Acrylic on its own giving an easy to use, quick drying, attractive finish with low colour change and plenty of protection against general wear and tear.

A tougher finish still that darkens (colour enhances) the wood very slightly is Finney’s Extra Tough Floor Varnish.  Another really easy to use, fantastic looking finish.

And if you prefer not to use a varnish at all, why not try a hardwax flooring oil (OSMO Polyx Oil, Saicos Premium Oil, Treatex Hardwax Oil) each of which will give an easy to apply finish that is not quite as tough as a varnish but is easy to maintain and repair.  Remember, this type of finish will alter the colour of pine to a more mellow (golden) tone.

To alter the colour of pine you will need to use Finney’s Professional Water Stains.  These are compatible with all of the finishes mentioned above), are available in a range of colours and are totally intermixable.

So, remember…
