I have painted a wooden bench I made from a bed headboard. I want to put a vinyl emblem and then another vinyl design on top of that one. I need to put a protective coating (like polyurethane) over the bench because it will be outside on the covered patio. I am new to Cricut, not done much with vinyl. What kind of coating do I need? One that will protect the furniture, yet be okay with the vinyl. Thanks in advance for the help!

My husband and I made bags boards with vinyl on them and we just use a regular polyurethane we got at Home Depot. I would just make sure to put multiple coats on to make sure it lasts! After a couple of summers the vinyl started to peel on our boards. Good luck!

I never seal my vinyl. The manufacturer recommends that you don't.

Use "outdoor" vinyl - I use Oracal 651. It is made to stand up to outside conditions. It should be fine, unless someone picks at it.

I buy mine from Expressions Vinyl, but there are many online retailers for it.

...forgot to say - it is a good thing to seal the wood and then apply the vinyl.

Let the finish dry for at least 48 hours before applying vinyl.
