Don't you like the smooth, glossy appearance of lacquered furniture? But it seems difficult to acheive yourself at home. We've seen rubberized coatings that are available for dipping the handles of tools and wonder if this might acheive that flawless appearance and provide a protective rubber layer to boot!
One such product from a company called Plasti Dip is shown here, with rubber coatings available in dippable and sprayable applications. We'll keep you posted if we can work up the nerve to test it. One obvious drawback: most rubber coatings are available in very limited colors like "blue", "yellow", "red". -regina
