Clear covering material for table?


Recommended Posts

I thought I had bookmarked a thread about this, but I did not.


Someone had mentioned a clear plastic covering they had used for this --  I think from Walmart?


What can I use that's not permanent, that will stand up to obviously kids playing on, writing on, and of course then eating on the dining room table??


I'm assuming I'll just tape it underneath somehow.


There will be maps and other things to view thru it, so it has to be clear.

We have a very nice handcrafted-by-a-local-artist-before-we-had-kids-and-knew-better dining room table.  I had actually posted a thread about it on the chat boards, and went with a recommendation to have a plexiglass cover cut by a glass shop.  It was inexpensive, durable, and looks fairly nice.   Plexiglass does scratch more than glass, so it is certainly scratched, but it still looks fine and  I feel it is safer with young children around.
