Tell us a bit about what the table is supposed to look like and what the damaged area looks like now.

The finish is dulled in an area about the size of a cantoulope, an area about the size of a quarter , it removed the stain.

The challenges here are two fold. The stain will have to be matched experimentally. It always looks different under the finish. After you choose the stain and have it applied and ready, apply a new finish.

The finish is probably lacquer. Most production furniture comes this way. You can make a mask for the damaged area and mist some spray lacquer on to it over and over until it builds to match the rest of the finish. Lacquer will burn into the existing lacquer. Skillfully done, this finish will match the rest.

If you knew the manufacturer, you could talk to them and get some information for this project.

Hope this helps.
