Refurb pine dining table-paint then clear varnish?

Good evening all.
I would like to update my sisters pine dining table and she would like it in a light baby blue.
Would the following do it-
- sand table as it appears to be laquered/varnished. Is there a difference?
-under coat with wood primer
-paint with blue colour
-then couple of coats of clear varnish to protect and allow easy wiping.

Sound ok. Would acylic eggshell give same effect without having to varnish?

If this works ok then I will repeat on the larder door in the kitchen.

Cheers for any help or advice. Si
