Project Information

Built in Window Seat for my Daughter

Carcass - 3/4" MDO Ply
Face Frame - 3/4" Poplar
Drawers - 1/2" Baltic Birch
Drawer Slides - 22" over extension
Drawer Faces - 3/4" Poplar with Beaded Trim
Window Seat Cushion - 4" foam covered with plush Fabric (made by local seamstress)

Drawers were finished with sprayed on Poly
Everything else was finished with sprayed on Semi-Gloss Latex / Semi-Gloss Poly mix (3:1 Ratio)

BTW If anyone is wondering about my paint/poly mix. I read about this in a magazine several years ago and decided to give it a try. I've had VERY GOOD RESULTS using this mix. The finished product seems really durable. Definitely sand between coats to get an ultra smooth finish.

I suppose that the same result could be achieved by painting first and then applying poly separately; but this way it seems that I can get the desired finish in less overall coats.
