Literally. Two coats of latex paint on a wood end table. I took the table apart, scuffed up the surfaces to give them some tooth, then painted each piece and the legs separately.
I painted outside on a somewhat humid, warm day; used a roller to apply two coats (used a brush on the legs). Waited about 2 hours between coats.
This was a week ago. The legs are dry. Yea! The table pieces, however, are still NOT dry. Not super tacky, but far too tacky to consider using.
I set the pieces out in the sun each day hoping the heat from the sun will help "cure" the paint. I'm beginning to wonder if the heat is helpful or a hindrance.
Can anyone PLEASE help me get these @#$!! pieces to cure?
Thanks in advance!
