Are you saying that you have already painted a table and chairs with black flat exterior paint?

You want a clear varnish. something like Ben Moore "Stays Clear":

Give us more info for more advice.

Wrong paint for the job. And if you put a clear over them, they will no longer be flat- but that is a good thing. Chairs should not be flat.
My favorite clear is Zar Ultra Max- easy to handle and tough.

As long as they're protected, why can't chairs be flat? I encourage people to experiment with all things paint.
I recently used the Ultra Max Antiqe Flat, which cures out to a subtle low luster. Nice product/finish. I didn't think it existed in my parts because the Zar website said the closest dealer was fifty miles away, and I was just about to make the trip. I was in my local Ace looking for a substitute, and they had the Zar that I was looking for.

Most flats scuff easily- particularly in dark colors. Collect dirt. etc. Not a good idea.
And no clear finish with the exception of Modern masters Dead flat is that "low luster- at least compared to flat.

I agree, flat black burnishes if you look at it cross. That's why I said, as long as it's protected with a clear. I wasn't suggesting that flat black alone would survive. BM makes a flat latex poly in the Super Spec line that I've used on occassion to protect flat black apps. The underside of the staircase was done in flat with the flat poly to protect. Newell posts gloss and white treads floor enamel.
