Still learning about what finishes to use and when. My wife insists on painting the bed by hand with some latex paint. I plan on buying a sprayer to put some top coat on the bed after, but I am unsure as to what I should use. Polycrylic came to mind but not sure how well that would work with a latex paint. The paint is satin and I would like to keep somewhat of a muted finish, nothing mirror-like (so no high gloss). Suggestions?

I don't care for using latex paint on furniture but if you are going to use it use a acrylic latex enamel. I wouldn't recommend putting a clear coat over it. Just use the paint only.
