Thought I would stop in and give an update on the table! The table, from Restoration Hardware, was unfinished wood. A few weeks ago, we set a glass of water on the table and it left a very clear ring and we decided it was time to better protect the top. We did a bunch of research and decided to go with Rubio Monocoat natural oil finish in clear/pure (no, they are not sponsoring me or know I am writing about them).
Application was pretty simple and although we were a little sad that it made the table darker, it is well worth it to have the table to protected. Water now just pools on the top layer.
Soon I will be updating about the couch corner!
