Aww that's adorable!

Yes Shiny!!!

I don't know if it's the same as what Hunter was talking about but they do make a marine grade poly which we have used on wood counter tops that my husband made. It's pretty expensive though and we could only find it in a quart size. It's really nice but I would never be able to afford to coat my whole barn in it.

Do I get a prize for making the first post on page 1,000????

That would probably be the same stuff and yes it is expensive. It's my job to paint everything and we have a lot of wood to paint at our property. UGH! Hubby not allowed to paint as he gets it everywhere, so he builds it and I paint it.

I feel your pain! I have the same job here. Our house is stained wood walls, ceilings and floors, guess who stained it all? I'm sure I've lost more than a few brain cells staining and painting.

Here's a pic of my tack room sign. The door itself has poly on it, the wood around it does not. See, there is color difference but it's not much.

Beautiful! It depends on the wood and usually how far into the can you as to the color you will get. Cedar goes a beautiful color and the spar varnish brings out the grain so nice. We usually do at least 3 coats and as you get farther into the can it darkens up.

We did some floors with a water based polyurethane finish, and it did not hold up well. We did others with an oil based polyurethane finish, and they did hold up well. They are not all created equal.
