  2. debi beard says:

    loved your video Karen! more pleeese!!!! you are so cute and fun to watch, we will have to make a video together when I come up the TPFM next spring!

  3. This looks so much easier than waxing and buffing! Love the video 🙂

  4. Melody says:

    What if you have already waxed your piece but realize you may need more protection on the piece? can you put endurance over wax?

    • GTC says:

      Great question Melody. I would not recommend putting Endurance, or any finish over wax. Wax should be your last product you use. Often I will put wax over a clear coat because I like the look and feel of wax and a little added protection. If you let the wax cure for about 30 days, you should be able to then put Endurance over it. Another option is to wipe the piece lightly with denatured alcohol. This basically dissolves the wax, but don’t rub too hard, you don’t want to take the paint with it. One ore option could be to put another layer of wax on. You can layer wax, with buffing in between. Hope this helps!

      Endurance can that go on after the 2 coats of turquoise I have put on.? I have another color on putting on of turquoise. So it goes on in between only?

    Love that orange! Is endurance comparable to polyurethane i.o.w. is it real strong?

  6. Josi says:

    Shhh don’t tell on me but I haven’t tried it yet but will now. I absolutely love you Karen. I love your spunkiness, and your jeux de vie!

  7. Ok, first off – that step stool is aDORable! Secondly – your video is even MORE adorable! Don’t get me wrong – I think the video is helpful, and I’ve pinned it so I can refer back to it at some future point, but you are just so awesome in demonstrating it and keeping it real! Bravo! (And the dog was hilarious at the end….)

    Hi Karen. I have a question for you. I painted a hutch several months ago and finished it with clear wax. Recently someone introduced me to Endurance. Wanting to give it extra protection I decided to apply 2 coats of Endurance over it. But the result has been bad 🙁 the Endurance (not the paint) has started to peel. Over the entire piece!!! Not to be disgusting…but it comes off in thin layers (kinda Ike the way your skin peels after a sunburn…sorry, but that was the best description I could think of). It never became that hard coat like I was expecting. Was it bc the piece was waxed first? What should I do differently on future pieces? I was planning to use the endurance on my cabinet re-do….but after this…I’m not so sure. Thanks for any advice you can give.

    Hi! I am so afraid to use wax after several disasters with Annie Sloan wax. You have given me hope that I can use Endurance on my furniture! I am still very nervous but I will try.

    Do you have any tips about how to avoid streaking when using Endurance?
