Hello, I have built a fold able wood table to take to tailgates and camping. This table will be strictly used outdoors. I'm wanting to paint the surface with my college colors (FSU) and include a mascot in the center. I definatley want to protect it with some type of polyurethane or lacquer. Is there a better type of paint to use, or does certain types of paint work better with polyurethane?
As you can probably tell, I'm new at this. I'm having an artistic friend paint the table, but I wanted to make sure we used a type of paint that would last and that we could protect it as long as possible.
