I am trying to refinish an oak dresser. My wife wanted to stain the dresser a dark color. I stripped the dresser with a chemical striper, sanded, and then finished with several coats of Minwax dark walnut. After that I applied a coat of Shellac cut with mineral spirits.
However, when I rubbed the shellac, the stain came right off as if it never penetrated the wood.
So now I am left with a blotched, botched stain job. See attached for a visual.
I would appreciate any advice on how to proceed.
