ok I am building a cabinet to house a mini fridge. It is sprayed white using eggshell paint.

It Dawned on me today that the fridge will have the odd leak from time to time. Maybe about twice a year.

Is there a clear finish I can paint on the inside of the cabinet to protect it from the odd leak?

Yacht Varnish? :?:

Water based varnish or melamine lacquer (check the mel does not attack the paint)will do, although the eggshell will be OK on its own. Yacht varnish will give your paint a yellow tinge.
