polyurethane - satin over semi

homeboundJuly 22, 2012

I am replacing a pair of cabinet doors for an oak vanity. I stained the doors with minwax stain, then applied one coat of minwax polyurethane, semi-gloss. I think the sheen is too high compared to the rest of the vanity and drawers. Would either a light sanding and/or follow-up coat of a satin-finish polyurethane be of any help? Thanks much.

Yes, either, but the easiest is to apply a new coat with a different sheen. The final coat determines the final sheen.

Just do a light scuff-sand of the existing finish with maroon or light gray Scotch-Brite pad or P400 sandpaper.
