What protective finish can you use on laminate wood flooring?

Hello,

I have constructed a Beer Pong table with laminate wood flooring for the table top. I would like to paint a basketball court design on top of it.

However, I am uncertain of what I could use as a protective finish over the areas painted and thus over the entire table.

I purchased a very strong primer (the painting section at Lowe’s said it would work for laminate) that I will apply to the areas I am going to paint.

Thanks for your help!

Any primer will work. Sand the top lightly. Apply the primer, and paint.

You have 2 options for sealer. A couple of coats of poly, or you can use lacquer. Little harder to get a smooth surface, but SUPER shiny.

You have to use water based poly, though. The other might discolor your colors. Check with the paint store to make sure the lacquer won’t.
