New to the whole upcycling thing and really in need of some advice.
Basically we sanded a dining table down that had been stained a hideous orangey brown, then used three different chalk based paints to paint in and wipe off marks along it’s surface (whitewashed the legs and underside) to give it more depth and make it lighter.
It’s now finished but I’m worried that if I put lacquer or something on time it will darken it back to being slightly orange as the wood itself (not sure what it is) has an orange tint. Any ideas?
