Not sure I am convinced an oil based product would hold up any better on a kitchen table surface than a nice latex semi gloss with 100 percent acrylic. Do add Floetrol to the latex to get rid of your brush stroaks or roller cover patterns though. Do remember the paint will need to cure, especially latex, for 30 days before you set anything heavy on it. I would definitely degloss the current surface chemically or with good old fashioned fine grit sandpaper and use an alkyd primer. You could think about putting a watebased poly urethane over the top of a latex if you need the durability.
