Default my apologies

i am sorry if my previous post sounded like SPAM i did go back and re-read it after it was brought to my attention. i am also sorry that i posted in the wrong forum. i guess i needed the do-it-yourself forum instead. i would like to clear up my story however and would still like advice if i can get it. thank you and again sorry about sounding like a spammer

my husband and I are moving to house this weekend and we had decided to paint the floor because we wanted to seal in all the pet odors the previous renters had left. and we could not afford to sand and refinish them. they are hardwood partly finished and some unfinished. we pulled up carpet and found that around the perimeter of the the living room someone had put that real old and sticky linoleum that we had to take up with a heat gun and a scraper. after taking up the sticky stuff there was still some residue so i used a kilz type primer. then after it dried i put a layer of deck and floor laytex paint on and waited more than 24 hours as it said on the can. but when i went back to put on the second coat it was still tacky and sometimes it even peeled up when i steped too long on it. i went ahead and put the second coat anyway because the bucket said i could and tonight i am going back to check it out but i am worried it will not be right even though it says that by tonight (48 hrs later) it should be able to take heavy traffic.
I am worried about putting my furniture on it and walking on it too much etc. is there a way i can test the steadfastness of the paint? and what can i do if it is wrong? did i do it wrong or does it sound ok?

No apologies necessary, happens all the time around here. Your post was not spam, but this forum is only to be used by a actual paint contractors, not home owners or DIYers. If you go to the link I provided in your first post, there are many pros (some of us from here too) that will be glad to help you out.
