So after an emergency trip to Hobby Lobby to acquire said finish, I was able to come back and work more. And to my surprise, be able to complete it as well. Some of you know I have a 9 month old, so sometimes, significant progress on ANYTHING from day to day is well, impossible at times.
Client requested the base be left alone, which I think was a brilliant decision. I painted the leaves to fade to its natural wood color at the base, as well.
