Backing from placemat ruined table
I had a palm leaf placemat in the center of my dining table with candles on it. It was a tempory fix until I get a centerpiece. The palm leaf placemat was a cheap plastic type that I usually use outdoor for a tropical look.
Anyway, today I took the placemat off to polish the table and the placemat stuck to the table. When I removed it the table feels sticky and looks discolored. I tried furniture polish - nothing. I light tried my steam cleaner - nothing - actually looked like it was starting to hurt the veneer. This is a light wood table.
Any ideas what I can try next - looks like it might have to be refinished. Not having a good day. Second piece of furniture I ruined in two days.
