So. The last we "spoke", I was trying to decided how to finish the handles. I went for stain on the tops and paint on the underneaths.
For products and tools, I used the Wooster Red Feather roller for the paint and the Wooster Short Cut brush for the stain. I used a craft brush and a sponge brush for small areas.
Almost 10 months later . . . the stain & clear coat is still like the day I finished it. The black paint, not so good. It was not long scratching off where the drawers slide in and out. It being an antique and solid wood, there are no runners. It simply pulls in and out and where it rubs on the sides, the paint has scratched off. So my final verdict on using Benjamin Moore Porch & Floor paint on furniture is DON'T DO IT. Stick with the tried and true Benjamin Moore Advance.
