DO I need a protective coating over Oil based Glaze?

We simply cannot afford replacement, SO, I have glazed my thermofoil cabinets. I realize this is not a long term solution, but it will buy me time until I can replace 53 cabinet doors and drawers.

1) I used "No sand" to degloss my doors, then,
2) I used 1qt each of Benjamin Moore's alkyd glaze and satin impervo paint. Honestly, they look good. (If I would to do this again, I feel like SW has a LITTLE bit better adhesion. I tried both, but BM was smoother and easier to apply.)

Since I did not prime, paint, and then glaze , would anybody recommend a protective coating over the glaze? Polyurethane?

Without proper prep including priming I would be more concerned that it will not stick rather than being worried about washing off the glaze. I have found that proper preparation takes more time than finishing a project but always worth it. IMHO

Yeah I would suggest a polyurethane for you to use as a protective coating, you should be sure to use one, well at least I always do. Beer 4U2

I have never used one and haven't seen a problem. I guess it depends on how much traffic and potential bumps you'll get on those walls.

Yes, always protect your work, plus it will give the glaze job some depth. Two coats of satin would do it, spraying would be best.
