Getting a new window installed in the living room. This one will be a bow window with about 17 inches of flat seating area. Mostly gonna end up being a lookout spot for the dogs. Hence an issue arises. The deck is going to be unfinished. I need to put a finish on it.
I need something that dries fast and isn’t too stinky as it’s living room and winter so ventilation is a concern. I’m not a HUGE fan of poly but I think this is an appropriate time and place to use it. Water based. Eventually the deck will get covered with some kind of cushion that my wife will make, but I won’t be able to keep the dogs off it and I’m thinking the poly is about as tough as I can get given the other criteria (fast dry and not stinky).
Does that sound right? Would you suggest something else?
AS it stands now I’ll probably be pickin’ dog hair out of the finish and I still haven’t figured out how to block off a 110 inch wide window just to keep the dogs off it while it’s drying, but…. I’ll have to come up with something.
