Question Furniture Painting

I painted my natural wood headboard by sanding it first to remove the finish, then priming it, and finally putting two coats of paint on it. Every now and then a bubble appears and disappears on one spot of the headboard. I tried sanding that spot and redoing it but it still comes back. What did I do wrong, and how can I fix it??

What type of primer and paint did you use?
Did you sand all the way down to raw wood or just the top of the finish?

Pigmented shellac is usually the preferred primer for previously finished wood although some oil base primers will do an adequate job.

It's hard to say from here
It depends what it was finished with before, and your exact steps and products used
Some more info might help diagnose why, and what steps to take to correct the problem
