Disaster in the vestibule!!! The stain looked great, but when I varnished it, everything got terrible! The first picture shows the old red stain showing through. I didn’t even know it was there! The second andthird picture show some weird blotchy pattern that came out in the first coat of varnish. Then I put on another coat of varnish, and something had gotten in the varnish and turned it all milky. The bottom of the fourth picture is what the whole vestibule looked like after the second coat of varnish. Worst of all, I was going to antique the stain by buffing it out in places and that was a huge mistake. My buffer sprayed lint everywhere and no tack cloth could get it all. So now I have lint in my varnish everywhere too. Ugh!
