    I am about to repaint a kitchen table. The table has painted legs already & the top is veneered wood that was varnished but has now become tatty and patchy with cleaning etc.

    I now what to re-paint in duck egg blue (legs) and cream top to match the new colour scheme in the kitchen. Am I right to use Egg Shell? I was going to use the Leyland primer/sealer (which I have used before to cover the dark stained dado rail & then eggshell and it looks fantastic) & then eggshell. I was wondering if I needed to varnish over the top of the eggshell to seal it - or will it stand up to cleaning with a kitchen anti bacterial cleaning spray.

    Cheers

    Use oil based varnish..it wont need sealing and is very durable...and make sure you give it a good wash down and rub down before you put the primer sealer on
