How To: Apply a varnish topcoat to furniture

Apply a varnish topcoat to furniture

Applying topcoat is the final step in successfully refinishing your furniture piece. Water-Based Polyurethane Topcoats are strong, durable and are favored because they dry crystal clear, allowing the beauty of the wood grain to show.

However, classic varnishes and brush-applied Oil-Based Topcoats are strong and durable. Varnishes and other brush-applied finishes dry hard and tend to be shiny or satin in appearance. Many people favor them for the richness they add to the appearance of the wood grain. Keep in mind that as they are oil-based, they create more fumes and require more care in application and clean up. Either type of finish requires little long-term care and is able to withstand the wear and tear of an active household, giving your efforts a long-lasting result.
