The nice thing about lacquer is that it dries pretty quickly, and you don't even need to wait for it to be completely dry to re-coat: just so that it's tacky.
Lacquer has the advantage that it bonds to itself, you don't need to sand between coats to make a surface for it to grab onto. The second coat will actually kind of melt part of the first coat and fuse to it. And it dries fast too.
So if you swipe across your piece at a rapid steady pace without building up in one spot, overlap your swipes about 50%, and repeat until you get the sheen you want, you should do pretty good.
If a white fog/mist shows up (as Sharon say she has seen) it is usually caused by humidity (being too high). If it doesn't go away, a light sanding followed with a new coat will usually take care of it.
Sharon, to keep grit away have you thought of making a frame "box" that would have no bottom (like a cake bell) have one side hinged to open and the sides made of some cheap tight replaceable mesh material? It could be screen-door or mosquito netting or something to that effect. Would let the fumes out and keep the dirt out. Open the hinge side to insert piece and spray, close to let it dry. Frame could be 1"X1" with netting stapled to it. Make it to suit your needs, and you're back to spraying outside

Marc - Humidity isn't a problem here where I live --we are in a drought- but just plain air born dust is. A box may help but the problem that I was speaking of as capt knows is from spraying to heavy .I wouldn't sand any paint that isn't thourougly dried but this white I was speaking of goes away on its on.It just takes time.
