My step by step process:
1. Sanded down with the orbital sander
2. Deglosser
3. Applied 3 times of bond coats (18-23 min between coats) Surprisingly the bond coat drys pretty fast.
4. Protective top coat

I will skip the optional decorative glaze for this project. Tomorrow I will put the protective top coat.

I highly recommend using the orbital sander as it cuts down time. I have used the green scrub pads with the deglosser to get into the small areas after using the sander.
