I added a glass top to mine. But at my moms we had 3 tablecloths that she rotated and when we ate dinner we used placemats on top of the tablecloth and then only if we spilled would we need to change it before the weekly saturday morning clean.

Can you add a glass topper to it?

placemats on top of the table cloth…. that are only put out for meals to prevent the cat from walking around on them

What about purchasing a glass top to go  on top? You’ll be able to see the beauty of the wood and also keep it clean with just a wipe

I always keep a cloth tablecloth on my table, but they are almost all handmedowns so I am not super careful with them at all. Our cats are not allowed on the table, occasionally they will jump up there but we shoo them off. Our food doesn’t touch the table so we don’t worry about disinfecting it other than washing the tablecloth frequently. Growing up we always used vinyl tablecloths like a PP mentioned. You may have to shop around to find patterns that you like, but they are easy to clean. They are smooth plastic on the printed side, with a felty underside so they are soft against the table. As kids we rotated chores so took turns wiping the table after dinner, usually just with a sponge. Since we have a little one on the way we will most likely be switching to vinyl tablecloths for everyday, but not until baby is eating.

Use placemats that you set out at every meal. Skip the table protector. It sounds like one my grandma had that was slightly padded. Haha.
