BEHR® WATER-BASED SPAR URETHANE is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 188.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I bought this to use on a brand-new outdoor potting table and it worked great! I lightly sanded any rough edges and lightly wiped the table down with a slightly damp cloth. I allowed this to dry overnight, then applied the product outdoors with a paint brush. It goes on clear with a slightly milky look to it. I applied 2 light coats to the entire potting table and it all dried with a clear, matte finish to it. I was able to complete the project in one day. If you didn't know I had applied it to the wood, you wouldn't know the wood had been treated with anything. Very pleased with how it turned out.
