What material is your kitchen table?
I'm sort of starting the search for a kitchen table for our new house.
I really want a trestle table, with either a wood or wrought iron base. Ideally, with a wood top.
But I need to be practical. I envision this as the place where we'll eat most meals, where my son will do art projects, homework, etc. I don't want to deal with a table cloth, and I expect that it will get crumbs, spills, splatters, and that glasses will sweat on it. So it needs to be durable and easy to clean.
Are any wood tops durable enough for this kind of activity? If I got one with a distressed finish, would that give me some leeway? How do I tell if I'm going to get rings from glasses or not?
Or, should I give up the idea and look for something in glass or solid surface? It's not my favorite look, but it would drive me and my family nuts to stress over the kitchen table.
