    Maybe try the pens that are like magic markers but wood colors. They have them at Lowe's or Home Depot, even Walmart I believe.

    Use a wood repair crayon.

    short of sanding the entire top and starting from scratch you could try

    this it won't be perfect but should help

    Get a small can of stain that is as close as possible to the existing finish and dab with a small artist brush on the affected area. Won't be perfect

    I would lightly sand the area, focusing on the ridges that define the damaged area. The idea is to remove the obvious edge so you can re-stain (use a Q-Tip for great control) and seal the damaged area...feather the seal into the undamaged part of your table. You don't want to end up with any ridges so make sure it feels smooth to the touch after the sanding.

    Are you still seeing light and dark areas - that means the acetone has not thoroughly dried. Are you seeing some blurred areas? I'm an artist and when I came across something like this I would buff it out with a Drexel not sand it. I also made my own stain but lighter than the wood and slowly build it up using fine tip art brushes. Good luck. Just take your time. If you get frustrated then walk away for a while.
