Hippie End Table! #4

Author's Note: 

Still working on the hippie table, though I'm giving it a rest until tonight, when I can take another look at it with my hubby. Everything is working great, except one thing. I noticed (from the beginning) a weird shadow like appearance on my end table. It's only on one side, and when I rotate the table the shadow stays, so you'd say it's a lighting issue. The other side of the table, where the lighting is different, does not have this issue.

At first I thought it had to do with the lighting on the lot I was testing it on. But when I moved the table around on the lot into different rooms, the issue remained. It also seems when I move the table outside the "stains" disappear.

I checked everything I could think of. It's not in the mesh. It's not in the bitmap/texture. It's not the bump and it's not the specular. I can't think of anything else I've missed...

If you have any ideas, feel free to let me know. I don't feel comfortable uploading my table until it's perfect. And right now I don't feel that it is. 🙁 Any tips you might have are definitely appreciated!
