How do I make the final touches on my furniture makover?

I painted furniture first with flat brown water based paint then coated with watered-down paints in many different colors on different areas of furniture. They look great. They look very much like they were chalk/milk-painted which I aimed for - the muted tones. Now, the question is should I seal them with matte water-based polycrylic or should I wax them? If wax, how do I do that? What kind of wax?
