Looks like formica? Remove half rounds, use heat and putty knife to remove old, replace with new surface of your choice.
Of course it's your fault

She is a bit of a fixer upper so I may have used it for my tool bag, supplies and such. What do you think would be a good durable replacement?

If you can get it off and sanded smooth, I would replace with more Formica. That stuff is pretty tough. It comes in any color you can dream up .

Replace with same Formica. Great product. Not hard. We did two areas with white. Inexpensive.

I suggest Formica as well but would go with some sort of pattern. Wear and tear is not nearly as noticeable.

Not so fast. If your wife has spent good money to buy furniture that has a distressed look, you're off the hook. Now your table has a distressed look and it didn't cost you a dime.

new boat is easiest solution.

Or you could ask her if she would rather have a new pair of gold earrings or a new table top. Pick the cheaper solution.

My wife has also complained about scratches. I claimed I didn't see a thing. I handed her a can of wax. I then ducked.
