My husband decided to resand our kitchen floor. Go the red oak select floor down to raw wood after 17 years of street shoe that had worn down. Put 2 coats of street shoe satin down friday evening. wait time between coats 3 hours.

Sunday, abraded the floor with 120 (mistake #1) and put coat 3 down of street shoe satin. I thought it looked fine, he noticed a kind of mottled look under the finish. I could live with this.

Monday, took floor down with 120 grit (to get finish off) and then 220 screening, (not paper)
Another coat of Semi gloss Street shoe, because he felt the satin was too lack luster. This coat looks horrible. Orange peel galore all over, some areas look like it wouldnt even take the finish, like it moved off the floor. Also, has some weird tiny lines running all over the place, someone suggested it was from the screen and not paper.
He said when he began to pour the street shoe, it had clumps in it. (mistake #2 or 3 at this point)

At this point in the game I dont know what to do, except feel like this is way too many coats of finish since friday. So frustrated at this point. Not sure where to go or what to use at this point.

After sanding to bare wood, did he start out with a sanding sealer?
What temperature was the room and finish? Sometimes a cold floor will
make a big difference.
Sorry for your trouble.

after getting the floor to raw wood, he applied only street shoe satin finish. 3 hours apart. No sanding sealer. Basic coatings didnt call for that
The house was around 68*

My biggest concern is can I lightly sand the floor with 220 grit paper on the sander and apply Street Shoe satin again, rather than semi gloss. The people at Basic coatings help desk were no help.

For a Natural finish we always use Commercial Sealer.
