If You Don't Mind The Odor ...

... I say go with oil-based poly. No wax! The oil based poly brings out the grain a whole lot more than the water based poly. Also, water/dampness won't discolor the finish as much as it would on a water based finish.

Be sure to sand and tack-up between coats! And if you're doing this in your Mom's house, send her away for a few days. (1 coat per day with oil-based poly.) The longer you can wait to put in furniture and stuff, the better. Let the poly cure real well.

Good luck! My best to ya and hope this helps.
