Okay people, you know those pics of my really pretty floor that we worked way to long on (instead of properly playing with our kids and doing laundry). They are in jeopardy. We put what was labeled "clear water-based polyurethane" on them.
They are YELLOW. Not a consistent yellow that I could try to work with....but a splotchy, puddly yellowish. Like it has been exposed to cigarette smoke for a century (Stephen gave me this word picture and now I can't dislodge it from my brain).
Future-brother-in-law, especially seeking advice from you, since you're in the know.
