    I am on my 3rd qt. in the past 3 years

    I used this on a work bench/desktop in a warehouse environment 9 months ago. Gets use all day long and still looks like new. I finished a name/sign for my cabin 3 years ago, and this year I hit it with sandpaper and put on another coat. Looks good. Quick, easy to use, easy cleanup.

    Great product Would definitely buy again

    I used this to cover the milk paint on my kitchen cupboards. Turned out beautifully. Easy to use, easy to clean up.
