Cathy: here's my post on this subject!!! Good luck!
Can you add a pic so we can be more specific to help? What kind of wood is your coffee table currently? What do you want to do?....stain or paint?
Whether paint or stain, make sure to seal. Coffee tables are normally high wear and tear so you want to protect with a poly coating. I would go 3.
