Best stain/poly for kitchen table
We built a new kitchen table and would like it to have a very rustic/farmhouse look. I want something in a dark color and a flat finish. I want it to be water resisitant, but at the same time, I DO NOT want to have to baby this thing. We are going to distress the table before our kids get a chance to distress it.
I don't ever want to have to strip it and refinish so I am leaning toward the one-step product, something I can wipe on again over time after a light sanding. Or maybe several layers of wax over an oil-based stain? There are just too many products and I am confused.
