Sand, wipe clean, prime (You can use either a shellac-based primer or an alkyd (oil-based) primer).
Then paint using semi-gloss or high-gloss alkyd paint. Apply several thin coats until you get the look you want.
Allow the paint to cure for several days before applying several coats of clear floor finish. A water-based urethane finish is a good choice for this step.
