Table in Boler - Anyone Ever Painted w/ Shiny Sealant?

that's my question... can i even safely put sealant on that type of surface? i don't want to ruin the original table but i'd like to give it some flair and that includes using a shiny sealant with some sparkle. it's not essential so i thought i'd ask about it before mucking it up. thanks guys!

I sanded mine down just to take the SHINE off of the laminate and then painted it with a gloss rustoleum paint.

THANKS!!! Post pics of yours when/if you do anything with it. I think you would be fine to paint a sealcoating on it if you first lightly sand off the original sheen. I'd use a spraypaint though. sticks better and ends up smoother and sparkles. rustoleum is usually my choice.... it's really hard when dried and you can put multiple coats on in no time.

What does the original table look like and what is it made of? Do you have any 'before' pics? I like the new color!

Ana, the table is a huge blank slate. We've seen all manners of mods. The ones I'm remembering are a handcut wooden table with a chess/checkerboard inlay, a custom built "shadow box" with all kinds of treasurers placed within and one of my favorites.. a table that someone had glued down all kinds of paper items and pictures then covered then entire piece with a thin piece of clear plex. The sky is the limit!

in my last rv.. an old 71 motorhome, we collected post cards everywhere we went. eventualy we had enough to cover the table. i glued them down, and put about 12 coats of spar varnish over them. it looked really cool and was a great record of our travels.

so yes you can paint it, decopage it, stencil it, or any other thing you want to do to it,,,, and it will be even more yours.
