your TinyPic link does not relate to your flooring issue. . . . .
(( possible SPAM here ))

as for the floor issue: you don’t degloss it – you put on another coat of satin,
well mixed, over the entire floor.

Read, Understand and Follow the instructions on the label of all products you use.
Pay particular attention to the safety notes and heed the warnings accordingly.
any rags used in the prepping/finishing process that have paint, stain, solvents,
or oils on them, should be laid out in the open to completely air dry prior to discarding them.
improperly discarding rags that have wet oils and finishes on them could result
in spontaneous combustion that could result in a fire causing personal injury
or the total loss of your shop or home.

The link worked for me. I saw a photo of a wooden floor annotated showing the shiny and dull areas. What’s with the rest of your lecture about reading instructions anyway? We have a new user who needs help and you’re making accusations of spamming and talking down to them.

Back to the original post, Blentil, your best option is to get another can and mix it well. Don’t try to just repair the glossy part. Chalk it up to experience and be happy with the fact that your floor will have an extra durable layer of protection :)

What they said: the finish will have the sheen of the final coat, so just apply a coat the one you want over the top of what you have.

Yeah, John is a little harsh today. Must not have slept good. lol

Link worked for me.
Same advise as above, new coat would be easiest.

You could probably use a buffer with some kind of high grit screen to change the sheen,
but I have no experience to tell you what to use, so new coat for me.

when I open the TinyPic link – it led to a site that
had nothing to do with the question . . .
IMO – an attempt to redirect to something else.

it’s good to see ya’ll agree with my suggestion of recoating vs the fix.

Both jbay and I saw the photo of the floor, so you probably have something wrong on your end.

yes – I totally agree that my server or net connection
has an issue with the site. I can only base my response with what I see.
and recoating a floor is an expensive lesson –
we all pay our dues in one way or another.

Well, it’s a shame the OP didn’t ask you first. You could have sent him one of your trademark photos.

I didn’t even see his suggestion because it was buried between his accusation and his lecture.

I would scuff sand it to insure good adhesion. But that’s just me.

the pole sander used for drywall would make quick work
with scuffing – if you don’t want to buy a new one, used
ones can be rented at the rental store or check your pawn shops.

Just be sure it’s fully cured before sanding, or it’ll clog your paper.
