Stone is not shiny. Not sure what you are trying to accomplish.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Has nothing to do with stone. Has to do with wallpaper. Think of the possibilities of sandwiching wallpaper in between coats of Por 15.

Wonderful protection from inside or outside elements, with a top coat of clear coat to protect from the suns uv rays.

Think vinyl wrap with a twist.....


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

And if/when you decide to change out the wallpaper, what happens if it's under Por 15?

Since the Por 15 would be smooth, just cover over top of it, just like you would if you were covering a painted wall.

With a bunch of other stuff going on currently, I had very limited time today to get anything done.

However, I did manage to sand the drivers side counter a little bit, and give that another coat of Por 15.

While I was at it, I took 2 more pieces of wallpaper, and the piece on the left had a coat of Lacquer put on the plywood first, and then the wallpaper added on top.

The piece on the right was just adhered to bare plywood.

I then covered both pieces with Lacquer on top.

Not bad so far.

I then waited 5 minutes.........

Ah, yea. Not looking so good on the left. This reacted even worse to the lacquer under the wallpaper than it did with Por 15 under it.

Now I know what not to do.

Then again, a water based clear coat may not damage the wallpaper.

My original thought was, if I could sandwich some wallpaper between a couple of coats of some type of sealant, that might be able to be used inside to be completely waterproof, or even outside, such as for something like graphics.

I guess I'll have to "paint one up", and lay it outside, and see what happens.

Worst case scenario - it won't work, and I haven't wasted much time or money finding out.

Nothing like a good, nice, light, sanding, to get ready for the next coat of Por 15.

Adding another coat makes all things look better. Nothing like a nice shiny, high gloss coat. I'll still need to cover this with something that will help protect it from the UV rays of the sun.

Not much of an update tonight. I did, however, spend some time just sitting in the co-pilot's seat, (surveying the situation, as a former boss of mine used to say), just getting a feel for my next moves.

Then again, it would not hurt if I had a couple of less irons in the fire.

That’s it. I’m buying stock in Por15.


My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

I ran across a bedding system today. It reminded me a little of one that used to be out years ago called the Trav-a-Sak.

This one is called the Beddy's. It's kind of an all in one blanket, sheets, etc, and looks pretty easy to use.

Does, or has anyone used this particular system? If so, what do you think of it?

Here's a link to the Beddy's system.
