I had some non-acetone spill on a dresser that is less than a year old. I know it is solid wood, but I think the top has a veneer. I was able to get it cleaned up quickly, but it still damaged the finish leaving a small ring of damage (about 2″ ring). It damaged the clear only, and did not damage down to the stain.
I attempted to repair the damage with 00 steel wool and aerosol lacquer. It filled the damaged ring caused by the non-acetone after a few coats of lacquer spray and steel wool scuffing. However, it left a line where I taped it off to avoid over spray of about 3″ square
I scuffed it up with the wool and got it flat, then sprayed one coat to a larger area around the repair spot, around a 5″ square. The finish came out dimensionally flat, however around the edge of the larger repair spot the finish looks hazy. The semi gloss outside the repair matches the semi gloss inside the repair, it just seems like the border where the new and old meet is hazy.
Is this something that can be fixed?
