what to do with shed floor

I just painted my 8' by 12' shed with exterior satin paint. I was wondering if i would be able to put some type of sealant on it to keep it from scratching the paint over time. I am kinda looking for something non slip. I just don't know what I would be able to put over a satin paint that wouldn't ruin the paint.

Don't know that Satin paint was your best option for a shed floor. I would have used a semi-transparent stain, or, if you wanted it painted, a porch and floor enamel that holds up better to foot traffic. Any kind of sealer you put on is gonna potentially make the floor slippery.

It's not too late, and you'll probably be better of putting a top coat of porch and floor. As Gymschu said, regular paint is not forumlated to be walked on.
