These can be coated to resist water, it depends on how much shine you are willing to have. Epoxy works great but can be glossy. I would guess from this picture that this vanity just has a couple of coats of varnish, meaning it can probably manage fine as long
hence the very light color. These floors had weathered quite a bit and we have very recently had them redone with a clear non-glossy finish - three coats I believe. Here is a picture of the floors now taken from the other side of the kitchen. You will see that the color is now more what people would associate
associate with a Hickory floor. Basically, what I am trying to say is that this original color was achieved by not placing a protective coat on the floor as the original owner had wanted a "weathered" look.
Heather that looks exactly like Creme - Sherwin Williams Use 2 coats...

All of the coats were brushed.
colors are a custom tinted plaster which is somewhat similar to Benjamin Moore's 957 - papaya. The Cabinet in the far right of this photo is base coated with Benjamin Moore's 035 - baked clay and then finished with a custom rub-off distressed finish. Hope that helps.

me whether they were treated? hd galvanized? if you didnt hd galvanize, how are you protecting against possible rusting? were the etched? powder coated? or just raw steel? thanks for your help!
Galvanized steel. I'm not sure where you are located but California Metal Spray in Santa Rosa has a process that can spray a zink coating on steel that looks allot better than the typical galvanized. The posts are W4x13

This structure was installed several years ago and has not grayed. We like using a clear coat as to not hide the beauty of the wood, and graying has not been a problem.
With a clear coat does it gray over time or since it's somewhat sheltered from the elements will it remain warm?
