Protecting wood table with a glass top
We got a beautiful wood table to use as our everyday dining table. It's lovely, but I didn't quite realize how messy toddlers can be. We have a table cloth right now, but then you can't see the wood at all, so we're thinking of getting a glass top for it. Does anyone have any experience with a glass top? Is that tacky? Is it analogous to people who kept the plastic on their couches?? (Like in My Big Fat Greek Wedding). Also, is 1/4" thick enough, or should I go for the 1/2" inch? Also, do you need the little rubber/felt spacers, or can the glass sit directly on the wood? If there are spacers, can't liquid/food get underneath the glass? TIA!
