Satin poly-urethane is a good finish. It's not hard to apply if you follow directions.
Apply at least two coats and it will be smooth and easy to clean. Three coats in a heavily used area, or plenty of area rugs. If you do apply three coats it's best to wait at least a couple of days between the final coat of finish so the first coats can cure a little.
Buff the stain with medium steel wool before the first coat of poly.
Thank you for the reply. What about the wax? It should be removed first presumably if poly is to be put on top correct? Or is poly out of the question for the area I have already waxed being that all the wax may be impossible to completely remove?
