Side Table Top

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

A small table has a top that is very worn; part stain and varnish and part original wood. Can I only stain what has worn off?

It will be hard to get any stain to blend across the table surface without doing some work. It will be best to sand off the existing stain/finish and then apply new stain and finish. With that said you could do a light sanding and then rub a matching stain across the table top and see what it does. If it doesn't work then simply do a refinish of the table top.

You can try to touch up bare spots with a medium fine brush, try to draw in grain strokes, pat them and with a light touch wipe and try to blend. If you can use spray gun on low setting to shade area lightly tap on touch up again and wipe lightly.
