    My daughter saw it happen. Luckily she didn't realize it did permanent damage. Otherwise she'd have said something for sure!

    I'm going to hell, aren't I?

    Ugh. My girls did this a few years ago on my 60 year old solid walnut kitchen table. It required sanding and a full re-finish. Sorry!

    Only if you do this...

    Bottom line, it's some minor damage to an object that can be fixed. No actual people were harmed spilling the acetone. ;)

    I did the same thing to my parents' antique mahogany dining room table when I was a teenager. They lived with a 6" or so spot that was completely noticeable. They finally paid someone to strip and refinish the entire thing...and then sold it.

    I always felt bad about it but they were surprisingly cool and let me keep living at home.

    I ruined an antique table when I was a kid with nail polish remover. My mom covered it with family pictures and had a piece of glass cut the size of the table and put it on top. It was a really cool photo collage table from then on. Just saying....if the lacquer solution doesn't work.

    So table runner for now. We don't want to totally refinish it until the kids aren't so likely to scratch it up.

    She may have done a better job had she not been gagged.
