How do I seal wood on a headboard?
I fixed up a headboard to use as the back for a bench. I painted it with spray paint that was paint/primer. It has peeled and the wood has warped and cracked in spots. I took a wire brush and got off all the loose paint. How do I seal it so it I don't have to refinish it again next year? (Photo is from last summer)

Lou, paint+primer is not adequate for raw or exposed surfaces. To truly have paint bond, you need to primer first with Kilz or similar. Paint over the Kilz will rarely peel up. Or it will take years to wear off.
Is this bench outside and open to the elements? Headboard wood is probably not Hardwood and will not stand up the all weather conditions, especially as you have finished it for indoor use. You would need to strip or sand off the finish until smooth. Then Add 2 x Supports to the back where it is open. If you get back to bare wood you should be able to use a Garden Fence or Furniture Stain, which you may have top do every year or so, or Varnish it with Yatch Varnish. You could if you wish to keep the painted look, Prime then undercoat and then use 2 x Coats of Gloss Paint.
