Wipe-on Poly over Painted Trim to make it more durable?
Hi all - I have been meticulously painting the trims of my house white. I have followed what I think is all the necessary prep-work as suggested in the forums here
1. Lightly sand and scuff the current Polyurethene finish (or Varnish) ... In cases where there were dings, sand it down to the wood
2. Coat or two of Zinsser Cover Stain (oil based)
3. Coat or two of Semi-gloss paint (Latex)
The problem is the edge of the door trims. I was moving a desk yesterday, and a light graze from it - the paint came of the edge showing the wood underneath. So I'm wondering if wipe-on Poly over the edges of the trim will help. I have seen online where some people have put Wipe-on poly over painted furniture to make it more durable. I wasn't planning on applying the poly all over the trim, but just the door frame edges. Is this ok or any other tip to make it stronger/harder againts dings. Thank you!
