Sealing an Asian Antique to be Used as Bathroom Vanity

I'm a decorator. I want to use an asian cabinet that is already painted/finished as a bathroom vanity. The vessel lavatory will sit on top of cabinet and the plumbing is mounted on the wall. Do I need to seal the cabinet to protect from water? The bathroom will not be used often. If I do need to seal it, I would like a matte finish. Does anyone have any recommendations?

just to clarify you say this thing is already painted? and with what, and how is the condition.
if you like the finish now and its not going to be used much i would leave it al is.

It's painted with a black paint and has a distressed finish. http://coffeetables.guidestobuy.com/...-in-black-onyx
Very similar to the one in the link. I think you're right. I'm not going to try to seal it. Thanks.
