Having an issue with a refinishing project that hopefully someone can shed some light on.
So far:
Sanded an existing bleached, painted and sealed 5" red oak floor, about 5 years old.
Bleached it 3 times, put on one coat of white paint thinned with paint thinner for workability.
Wasn't light enough for client, put on second coat of thinned white paint.
Waited 4 days, applied one coat water base poly. Let dry, applied second coat water based poly.
Let carpenters, painters, plumbers come in and finish up their work before coming back for final two coats.
Checked the floor and there is some kind of bleeding coming through all over the place, it is a beige/cream colored streaking that is occurring at all areas. It is showing up at the long joint, mid boards, just one side of the boards. It looks like when cedar bleeds through paint. Any thoughts on what might be happening?

Apparently the paint was not dry. I'v seen paint that still was not completely dry after 30 years. There was paint thinner bleeding up when it was sanded. The Spring wood has tubes that hold the solvent and dries slowly. The bleaching process probably opened the grain on the surface so it absorbed a lot of the solution. You will probably need to sand again and start over. Better make a sample. White stain can be difficult, even with the best conditions.
