I agree with the wife too, that will look much nicer with the sheen knocked back a bit IMO.

First, I feel like 220 is a bit coarse to be sanding with between coats. I usually opt for more like 400 or maybe 320 at the most. Personally, I used to do as you plan by setting the sheen with the final coat. But, I’ve found that it’s just as effective to use full gloss for all coats then knock back the sheen with a very fine wet/dry paper or steel wool. I think one way is as effective as the other but the latter method means I only have to have one can of poly on hand.
