Recoating with a different product can cause adhesion issues, even with a screening first.  I wouldnt recommend it.  Either use the same product, or sand and refinish with a quality topcoat... Nothing...

Post: RE: Kitchen uppers depth

It covers like a paint, but it really doesnt peel off and alligator like paint does over time.  Instead, it gets a bit chalky and just wears thin.  A solid stain will sand smooth when it is time f...
