Question EGG Table Woodworkers Advice Needed

I want to build a table for my EGG. I need to do it on the cheap with all the holidays coming up.

Here is my plan, I have an old California King water bed frame. This thing is about 20 years old and is massive, it has drawers and cabinets built on the bottom and puts the mattress about 3 feet off the floor.

It's built with 2x12 pine boards.

I am not sure of the configuration yet, but I will need to buy some lumber, 4x4 Redwood legs and 3/4" plywood for the table top.

Here is my question, it is varnished gloss dark and has some areas that need touched up to get the color even. Living in the Desert any wood outside will need proper treatment.

1- Can I re-stain the wood and just apply some polyurethane Lacquer over the existing interior grade varnish?

2- Or can I paint over the existing varnish without stripping or sanding?

I am trying to do a job that will last years but do not have a lot of time for this project so want to do it right but not overkill it.

Thanks in advance!

You cannot restain without taking it down to bare wood. You can paint it. A little bit of rough sanding with 100 grit paper should be fine.

Thanks, can I just go over it with some lacquer thinner and then repaint?

Adverse to sanding? The light sanding will rough up the suface and give the paint something to bite into and stick to.
