Over the years, I've noticed the wood veneer was starting to look and feel extremely dry. I don't think it ever had a clear stain put on it. I know I might not be able to keep this thing forever, but I want to try and protect the wood the best I can.
Since I still had some from the sewing machine project, I decided to take the vanity apart and give it a good coat of polyurethane on it. I started it on Monday night and finished it tonight.
|It's a little blurry, but you can see the poly on the middle section, compared to the unpoly'ed left and right sides. It's a huge difference, and I only did one coat of poly. The two pieces sticking up in the back are the supports for the mirror.|
|Before (on the left side) and after (on the right side) the poly. Again, this is just one coat.|
