Durability of Minwax Polyshades
I've searched enough tonight to know that this is not a favorite product of many. I have tested it on a chair (not stripped) to darken it up. I did not find it hard to use & kind of liked the effect I got. It gives the chair character. My concern is the durability. I applied the first coat & there was one run at the bottom of the leg. I went to sand it 24 hours after applying & I felt like the entire product would have peeled off if I kept going. It reminded me of painting a water based paint over an oil based paint without priming first. Anyway, I'm very concerned that the product won't stick well to wood that hasn't been stripped. I did lightly sand, but nothing major. Is it because the product didn't have time to fully cure? Or is this product just a quick way to get a bad result? I really like the way it looks. Would it be more durable if I coated it with a varnish once I was happy with the darker color? Help! And Thanks!
