    I am building a desk for my granddaughter and will be painting it white.
    I would like to have the desktop a hard surface.
    Is there a sealant that I can put over the paint?
    Thanks

    If you are using waterbased paints for the white finish then simply use a water based hardwearing clear varnish over the top. . Ronseal do a huge selection of these in various sheen finishes, satin is usually a popular finish as a gloss finish can be quite reflective. The more coats you put on the harder wearing it will be and it only takes a few hours between coats. I did this on my home office desk and 8 years later it is still hardwearing.
