And the answer is!!! NOPE. The bubbles stayed in and it looks horrible. I am still not sure what caused it but it seemed like there was some chemical reaction when it hit the table. Maybe it's the spray that wasn't completely dry yet? Maybe it was something that was on/in the roller? Maybe it was the cold? I am not sure but I am going to wait quite a while for it to dry, do it slowly, and make sure it isn't so cold.
