Floor enamels

On bare wood, I'd suggest that you use two coats of a good quality Alkyd floor enamel. Thin the first coat about 15% with Naptha or mineral spirits (Naptha dries faster). Allow the floor to dry for at least 2 days and sand it with fine sandpaper and take extra care to clean up the dust with a vacuum and tack cloths. Apply the second coat without thinning and allow it to dry at least 2 days for foot traffic and 3 for shoes, 5 days before you put the furniture back (get felt pads for the feet of all your furniture).

Hope that helps!
