I put a Glade Plug-In on my dresser & the oil leaked. So it took the finish right off. I would like to fix it. Any tips of how I go about this?

If you can match the stain then you can sand that side down and re-stain it. Then put a clear coat over it of polyurethane. If just that top coat is damaged then you can just put polyurethane, lightly sand first, it might be a varnish so it would be best to talk to a local Sherwin Williams store.

Use a good spar varnish, McCloskey's Man-O-War. A good varnish will stick to almost anything.
