I want to use a table outside and need to paint or cover for outer use

I found a great table that I need to either paint or cover it with something so that I can use it outside and it won't rot. Any Ideas?

    Wood? You would need you seal it.

    You can use a marine poly/varnish on wood for outside if you want a stained look table. And you would want to keep the table out of the hot sun and rain as much as possible if you expect it to last for a while. I painted my wood picnic table with exterior house paint to match my siding. It has been the perfect paint since it is made to last on a house for 30 years!!

    I would use marine poly on it. We used it on the back steps we replace and is going on its third spring this year and still going strong with four dogs constantly going in and out the dog door or laying on it.
