The first few pieces of painted furniture I did, I had no idea what a topcoat was or that I was supposed to use them to seal and protect furniture.
I quickly learned that if you paint a piece with a flat sheen of paint, you will eventually wind up with a bruised and scratched up piece of furniture – that ain’t pretty.
You live. You learn.
And then get Luvs.
Not really, those diapers were never great for us.
It took a few more tries, but I finally realized the benefit of a topcoat and when to use one.
