No, but I do find eggshell is very difficult to keep clean, even from grubby hands on doors.

Has anyone any suggestions how to achieve aged stained dark wood look for pine floorboards?? Head bursting with possibilities confused

The eggshell would not be suitable for floors. They sell a floor paint which is tougher to withstand additional wear and has a 40% sheen to make it easier to keep clean.

I would be wary of buying paint on eBay. It is a perishable product and has to be stored correctly. You won't know if it's been stuck in a shed for months.

Sadolin wood stain

Paint will last up to 10 years outside
Down side takes quite a while to dry

Before any piglets put their two pennies worth in, this stuff is the dogs

Talking of dogs , mine earns 100$ an hour running property seminars now . It's amazing what a Jack russell will do for a biscuit or two

He is ambitious and is soon to launch a new venture to teach the plebs how to post on the internet without bragging about how many thousands they spent on a new tap washer for their never to be succeeded kitchen. grin
