Are you proud of your floors? Can you look your floors in the face without a blush? Do they add to the orderliness and refinement of your home, or are they a thorn in your side? Floors repay good treatment. They respond to good varnish. Your floors will stop making trouble and become a joy to your eyes if you will have them properly refinished. Murphy Transparent Floor Varnish "the varnish that lasts longest" covers floors with a beautiful lustrous coating that takes all the wear and preserves the natural beauty of the wood. Murphy Floors are great trouble savers. A damp cloth or mop keeps them free from dust or lint. And they haven't the trick of slipperiness. Murphy floors are money-savers too; they need refinishing so seldom.
