Best Answer

Most pool tables have surfaces that do not require paint. The table sides are not subjected to any wear, so the actual finish and paint becomes a matter of how much effort you plan to put into it.

If the table is wood, the wood finish is the best, so use of a paint indicates a quick and dirty finish, which also means that the type of paint doesn't matter.

If the sides are any other type of surface, an acrylic enamel will be long lasting and provide a nice finish.
