Hi everyone. I am new here and hoping someone can help me with the disaster I’ve made. I’ve read other posts on this topic, but I am not familiar with all the products you mention, so I need specific help for dummies!
I am re-upholstering bar stools (framed back and seat) for a client. The upholstery part is easy for me. She asked that I touch up the wood where it was worn. Went online, looked for tips, thought I had the answer. WRONG. Here’s what I did.
1. I sanded the stools with 220 grit on an orbital sander. That dulled the gloss, but resulted in the worn spots getting larger.
WELL, the stain is still tacky after 3 days. I even brought everything into the air-conditioned kitchen because it’s hot and humid here. Is there anything I can do to salvage this mess?
