Painted floor


We painted a bedroom floor with 4 coats of latex satin paint, then painted the first coat of water based polyurethane. Yellow stains are now appearing throughout the floor. Don't know what next step should be. Help!

Did you use a floor enamel? Sounds like you just used a wall paint on a floor, if so it won't last and four coats is a little excessive and not necessary. Did you use water or oil base poly? Depending on what kind of poly you used it will yellow the paint, hope you did not use oil base poly over latex paint as that will cause problems with the paint as well, a quality water base poly is clearer than an oil base poly and dosnt have that amber tint to it.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, we used latex wall paint and a water based poly.
Can't figure it out, so now have moved on and put down a coat of actual floor paint. Seems to be working well.
