|No polyurethane, yet. Just waiting until it feels "done." Know what I mean?|
Live and Learn:
1. Since there is no polyurethane I do notice the paint has stuck and peeled a bit where the lid closes. This shouldn't be a problem once its applied.
2. Not in love with the stencil design. Thought it would have more definition but the stencil was ruined by the eggshell paint. Should have stuck with acrylic paint like it recommended.
