Re: Bathroom proofing furniture

Maybe you could ask one of those "trash to treasure" bloggers about your query? I keep seeing the book ad of missmustardseed.com on DS. She does a lot of salvaging & selling wooden furniture. Maybe you could try her?

Re: Bathroom proofing furniture

I would prime and paint with any latex paint (they have anti-mildew additives in them) or specifically a marine or mildew-resistant formulation of paint (Sherwin Wiliams and Benjamin Moore both have them, I don't know about elsewhere). You can put a clear coat of protective finish over it, but oil polyurethane yellows and shouldn't be used with paint finishes. Be sure to use Polycrylic (Minwax's blue cans) which is water based polyurethane to avoid yellowing and get good adhesion with your latex paint. GL!

Ya should have mentioned its heresy to paint furniture in my moms opinion!
