Our house was built in 1911 and have lived in it for 1&1/2 years. The dining room has a beamed ceiling and just noticed for the first time 5 or 6 circular and hollow tan/brownish spots on the wood beams. About the size of a half dollar. The tan coloring is apprx. 1/2 thick and is almost a complete circle. Do not feel wet, but the spots have an ever so slight sticky feel to them. The interior of house was totally repainted prior to our having purchased and moving in, so the paint is no more than 2 years old. These spots just appeared. Any ideas as to what they are or caused by and how to correct??? Thanks
