Any help appreciated for this table shelf. It has several coats of rattle can lacquer with cloudy spots showing through. The white spots visible in the photo are what is showing through the finish.

Thanks,
Mike

Yep, you have moisture in your finish. It happens when the humidity is high and it’s very warm. The finish dries on the surface before the moisture has a chance to evaporate.

Blush remover, is my, now soon-to-be your, best friend with lacquer in the Cackolackas in the late summer.
Get it at Klingspor Woodworking Shop

Thanks for the link and other help. My quickest route was to take the finish off with a scraper and go to another finish.

I just re sanded and finished it in my shop with the air conditioning down. Worked great. I had moved outside due to better light and did not understand about the humidity issues with lacquer
