    Made a stand for a guy. He wants it black I stained it but I was unhappy with it so I decided to sand it down again. Looked awesome indoors, took it outside to load it and realized it was not fully covered. Looked blotchy and not very good so I couldn't send it to him. Now I'm scrambling to do a better finish and need advice. looks fine indoors....... IMG_8163.jpg
    Here's what it looked like outside.

    I want it black So my thought is sand it smooth again, get some primer, paint it with?????? that's the question. Lacquer and a high gloss, Cant use latex in a sprayer can I?

    yes, definitely prime and paint, I wouldn't sand it down again (not that I'm an expert lol)
