Hi! My friend put down a bottle of acetone on the table multiple times while doing her nails. The bottle leaked slightly and has since left dark and light rings on the table from the bottom of the bottle. It is the table linked below made from concrete resin, does anyone have any ideas on what I could do to improve the appearance? you!

    Never heard of concrete resin.... does this have a resin top coat? I would first go to the manufacturer's website and ask their customer service.

    If indeed it's top-coated with resin, then I would sand it out, and get a crystal clear 2 part resin kit at a hobby shop and do a pour over the whole top. You can make a drip edge with painters tape. Be sure to put large cardboard pieces and a tarp over the floor. polishing

    If this epoxy topping is rough like concrete, it could be one of those countertop coating products..... I like using a rubber bathroom squeegee

    Faux paint it...

    Call the manufacturer. They may have a solution. The acetone ate through the resin finish.

    Lightly wet sand with 800 grit sandpaper. The acetone ate through the resin.

    Apply more acetone and go for a new look with acid staining and seal as before?

    Did you find a fix to this? I've poured a bottle of acetone on the same table and it's ruined! How did you fix yours?
