Here is the table before painting....(ignore the jungle in my dining room...Hello my name is April, I'm a plant hoarder)
Here is the table during painting....
I stripped the table top and sanded like crazy the and last night I put two coats of dark stain on the top....it looked gorgeous! I was so happy with the color of the stain. As I was leaving for work I noticed the stain still looked wet in places and it is all splotchy all over the top. The stain still feels tacky to the touch. I have never had this issue before and I am not sure what happened. I am going to let it dry for 48 hours before I try anything else. I am hoping I can sand it a little or apply the shiny clear top coat to reduce the effect that is happening. I will be doing some research so stay tuned for the final product. I hope it is back in the dining room by Friday!!
Why can't just one project go smoothly ?!?
