Varathane on top of Lacquer


I had a kitchen table given to me. It has a lacquer finish... Pain in the but because u put a glass on it and it stains. I want to put varathane on it for protection from stains and generally i want to be able to put a beer on it without an issue. Should i lightly sand it and varathane it? Or would there be a better solution?

Thx

Lacquer strips with lacquer thinner. Unlike polyurethane, lacquer can be "reactivated" when it comes into contact with the proper solvent.

yup, you'll have to use stripper first then give it a light sand before you recoat it. you have to make sure you get rid of all the old lacquer to ensure there is no uneven color and proper curing
