Can it be applied to a cabinet door with vinyl lettering on it?

Asked by: Carol
Great question, Carol! Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane is suitable for use on previously painted or wood surfaces. We do recommend a test application over vinyl surfaces to ensure the desired results. The surface will also need to be lightly sanded to ensure proper adhesion as well. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

can this be used on unstained steps, left natural for design effects.

Asked by: diy
While Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Interior Polyurethane is suitable for use on interior bare wood surfaces, we do not recommend this product for use on surfaces that will receive foot traffic. The coating will not hold up in this type of environment. Instead, check out Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Floor Finish Polyurethane for interior floors and steps. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-gal-Clear-Matte-Water-Based-Interior-Polyurethane-Case-of-2-286820/205926960 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

I spray painted kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts with white glossy latex paint and I wanted to give them a glossy protective layer. None of the polyurethane products were recommended to use on painted surfaces except this. When tried to apply using a professional bristle brush (for polyurethane), first layer had quite a lot of brush marks and for some reason immediately it attracted all the dust from air. We were not able to create a dust free environment, so I had to sand down to the paint layer and spray paint everything again. It was a nightmare. I rushed to the store and bought few cans of the spray version. Used one can and applied the polyurethane on the newly painted doors, but I was not happy with the fact that the doors became dull, although I got the high gloss one. At least there was no dust after spraying so my assumption was that it must have come either from the brush or from the PU itself. OK, a had to bite a bullet, sanded one more time and reapplied the remaining PU with a new brush. Now I have glossy finish with a lot of dark dust trapped underneath the PU layer. This had extended the project with one week and this was very disappointing. For other applications it worked very well.
