Yikes! Need to stain and finish by tomorrow! ???
Fingers crossed for some quick help. Upholsterer for Bergere chair is coming tomorrow(sooner than I'd expected) and I must do something about one of the arms. It's actually only the "hand"( end) of the arm that has a faded, worn off finish. The upper arm is fabric. Neither Howard's Restore a Finish or Old English scratch cover worked ( did not soak in/ darken enough... it's a dark mahogany). Can I scrub it clean, lightly sand and use a stain-finish all-in-one product(polyshade,gelstain, I've heard of???) Should I just buy some dark stain and finish with spray on poly? It's a very small area and focus is on fabric vs. the wood finish. He's picking it up tomorrow afternoon.:>O
