Option 1) No sealant


If you like a very matte finish and your piece will not undergo heavy wear and tear, you can skip this step entirely and choose not to seal it at all!

Option 2) Waxing

To give your furniture a more professional looking finish, we love the look and feel of wax! Our Natural Wax will help you achieve a fine furniture finish which is perfect for everyday items that won’t get too much wear and tear.

Wax is applied with a wax brush or a lint-free rag, then buffed until it’s smooth and no longer tacky.

Option 3) Tough Coat

Tough Coat is our go-to product for any furniture that will get a lot of heavy usage, such as table tops and kitchen cabinets. It is extremely durable and as you can see in these pictures, dries to a beautiful satin sheen.

Tough Coat is applied with a foam brush in long, smooth strokes.
