My wife said she wanted a larger coffee table and I started to look around the house for ideas. We have a 4' x 4' dinner table that we really don't use anymore, so I got the idea to cut the legs off of it to shorten it. I flipped it over to level the legs and I noticed that it has a pretty great wood grain on the bottom. The table was painted with many coats of black paint, so I decided to strip that almost all the way off and leave it sort of "weathered" looking. The top turned out really great, but I feel like I need to seal it or something. I would like to keep it not shiny, glossy, or make it any darker but sealed and protected. Also, I would like it to be relatively quick and easy to apply. Does anyone have any idea how to accomplish this?
