With 3 kids and many pieces that have survived the past 18 years I can succinctly and honestly tell you that $ for $ the WB Polycrylic from Shhhh. Minwax (sacrilege I know) is tough as nails. Most of the kid style furniture play stuff etc, was sold off on Craig’s List within 5 to 7 years of making it. The kitchen table however has survived 3 kids through all sorts of science fair projects girls with nail polish and all sorts of abuse and still looks damn good. There are more expensive finishes and I buy them for work that I expect my kids to fight over or the ones where a client pays the bill but other wise that $10 qt does a great job, is easy with a brush or a gun and just needs water and soap to clean up.

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
