    YES, you can. Poly spray comes in different finishes. Maybe you didn't use the right degree of gloss???
    Your table looks great!!

    Yes you can. It will cause your white paint to yellow though. I would recommend polycrylic over oil based as it is water based and won’t yellow lighter colors. You can use it over any color.

    Try it on a piece of of wood after you chalk painted. I agree use polycrylic (they have different finishes).

    Yes, you can use poly over chalk paint. Poly does come in a few different finishes. Flat, satin, matte, and gloss. Use a water based polyacrylic.
