The details on this table top are absolutely gorgeous so we knew there was only one choice to bring them out and that was Java gel stain. We sanded down the top and stained it using Java. We top coated it using Enduro Semi gloss urethane. We painted the base of the table and chairs using Persian blue milk paint and slightly distressed them. Finally we top coated the chairs and base with Enduro satin clear poly. It turned out beautifully!
