Do I need a finishing coat on a dresser in which I used latex paint?

    At least three coats of a water based polyurethane. Use a foam roller and foam brush for a smooth finish.

    Yes, unless you are doing a distressed look. The right finishing coat will keep the paint from fading or chipping easily. 😇

    Poly coatSSS. Otherwise, whatever you put on the dresser will stick.

    Water based poly does not yellow. Oil based gives a yellow tinge and yellows over time.

      Since I'm new at DYI projects I should sand between coats. What product do you use. Thank you 😊

    I gently use a green Scotch Brite pad in between coats to smooth it out. Wipe the dust off with a damp cloth.
