while staining an aspen ceiling 30′ in the air and around a stair case i hit a snag. yes someone actually installed it before treating it. using a waterbase stain it dried while negotiating the staircase. where the dry and the wet met up looks like crap i tried wetting it and rubbing it out. is there any other option than sanding the area and reapplying.

"The old Quaker Meeting house is almost 300 years old and as my sawzall made its way into the pegged ancient wood, a smell emerged that told me about dried, cracked things. The ancient Quakers sitting in the well worn pocket of their silence on the darkened pine benches were whispering something to me across the years. Something about why I was here, why we're here. Lord but it was hot. I reached in to clear anything out of what was the sill, nothing but the hardened mud, lime and sand mortar, dust and shadows." -- Jer
