    It looks beautiful! Do you need to completely remove old poly to use this? Our floors desperately need to be refinished, would love to do it myself, but scared of those big sanders!

    SheilaG, Plum Doodles this needs to be applied to bare wood. If you rent a pad sander they are pretty user friendly. It will just take you more time because they are not as aggressive.

    Thanks, Kevin- I'd rather take more time than accidentally sand myself into the basement! :)
