protect wooden vanity

How can I protect my wooden vanity from moisture in the bathroom?
Submitted by chanaschapiro

A good question.  If you want to keep the natural or stained appearance of a wooden finish I have had the best luck with a  finish designed for the outdoors.  I have used a Marine varnish successfully in the past but there might be some more modern finishes that work as well. Ask at your local paint shop what they would recommend to re-finish a wooden front door since the humidity in a bathroom is not that different.
