I bought a new , small, pine wood bookcase that came sanded and smooth, raw wood, nothing added. To protect it I applied one thin layer "clear polyurethane" to it 9 hours ago. It has created a gross , wet , sticky surface all over. I think I ruined my beautiful bookcase. The instructions on the can said not to stir, or shake it, so I didn't. I am now wondering if I should have stirred it...The bookcase also now has a gross gasoline type of smell to it UGH..Anyone have any advice on what to do? do you think this will really dry into a clear protective surface? or will it stay as a big, sticky, disgusting mess ?? I wish I just left it alone. never again will I use this stuff !!
