Hi all.

I, like an idiot, didn't mix my poly before I put down the final coat and it resulted in an uneven sheen with 1/2 the floor looking like semi-gloss and half looking like satin.

See floor here:

Now, we DO WANT the satin finish, not the higher gloss one. Minwax quick drying oil-based satin poly.

The question of the day - how do I "degloss" the shiny side?

Thanks in advance.

I have used 00 steel wood to buff the finish by hand to dull the finish. This will make small scuffs that will scatter the light like a satining agent in finish. It can take a lot of pressure if the finish is cured. Just a little dust is created by the abrasion. A floor finish can become shinier over time if the surface is polished by stocking feet

The finish is less than 24 hrs old (since application)

Over coating the semi with the satin should help cut down the gloss.
