I have an amazing opportunity come my way!! The folks at Environmental Technologies (ETI) sent me some Envirotex Lite to try out. My first question (and I bet yours) was “what is envirotex lite??” Well let’s start with a formal description:
Pour On High Gloss Finish!
Envirotex Lite is a water clear reactive polymer compound. It cures to a thick, glossy coating in about 8 hours at 70°F, and reaches full strength and toughness in about 48 hours. This durable, resilient material requires no polishing to produce a high gloss. One coat is all that is usually required for a deep attractive finish, however, two or more coats maybe applied one over the other by simply wiping the surface with a clean cloth and alcohol prior to re-coating.
Now for the informal “Angie” description (all opinions are mine):
Envirotex Lite is like an EXTRA thick protective poly to add to the top of your furniture pieces! Like 50 coats of a typical product…all at ONCE!! Sum it up in one word…awesomeness!! I am in love with this product! Seriously, I am sold. This is now my “go to” for furniture refinishing. Plus my head is spinning from other uses for this fab product.
You MUST READ the instructions carefully. They must be followed exactly. The instructions come with the package or can be viewed online here. I found it was an easy product to use once I got the hang of it. But read then re-read then re-read again the instructions. Follow the steps in order. I had absolutely NO issues with the product, application, instructions, anything. It all worked perfectly! For large projects like this, you are going to need to use a torch for a few minutes. I was intimidated. But guess what?? I used one….all by myself!! Worked like a dream! If I can do this, you can do this!!
Now are you ready for the good stuff?? Check out my nightstand:
Do you have furniture in your home that is just screaming for this product?? Let me know about it! Last but not least….a little before and after comparison!

What a cute piece! Great job Angie. Love the gloss top and the stencil.
Very cool! Now I have to determine my next project that I can use this product on!
Nice project! You did a great job.
Oh gosh, it’s funny that you posted this today! I bought some of this last year when people were sponge painting their kitchen counters and using this stuff on top. I wanted to try it out before I did something that drastic. I’ve had this stuff for over a year and just decided today, what I wanted to use it on.
When I describe this stuff to people, I always say, “You know that thick, clear coating that they use on the bar in some bars?” Everyone always knows what I’m talking about. ha ha
Thanks for you review! Your nightstand is beautiful!
Shut the front door! Are you kidding me?! It looks like glass or ceramic from the pix, it is so shiny! I’m intrigued!
It looks amazing, Angie!! Love your stencil work. 🙂
It turned out great! I chickened out of my table project, but maybe I will do it after all.
What a difference! It looks great!
I’m not kidding about the bravery thing! I would have been so nervous to pour that on my lovely table. But it looks amazing! Wow! I love that glossy look on top. You did such a great job. This is definitely super cool. I love it!
Hi Angie! The nightstand transformation is wonderful and I love that you added the stenciling. This product would be great for the tables in our rental property. It seems people never use the coasters and we end up with water rings. Thanks for joining my party.
So adorable. I love this resin too, but haven’t tried it on this type of project. LOVE it!
Great job – it’s a fantastic revamp! I like the heart actually. 😀
Great stuff I’ll have to try it!
As for the heart its on a lot of old wood things that are so cool some people have used wooden molding or designs to cover the heart with great success.
I really love the before and after picture ♥ thank you for sharing..
