Welcome to the forums!

Most stains are formulated to suck into raw wood and don't dry well if applied over sealed wood. You should be able to take a rag wet with mineral spirits and scrub off the stain. Once you get the stain removed you can get a glaze tinted to the desired color and apply it over the paint.
