Hi there,

I seem to be the only "nut" who likes to actually buy
antique furniture and architectural elements with lead paint on
them. I have found tons of articles on how this will kill me and
my children, but none on how to possibly preserve the lead paint and seal
it in. I have been putting a coat of clear, matte urethane on my lead
painted stuff. Does anyone out there know if this will reduce, or
eliminate the danger of poisoning? I love the look of chippy old paint,
and need to find a way to convince my husband that we all won't die of
lead poisioning soon. Please help!
