Have you ever tried to find a color of stain to match an existing item, or just you imagination, only to find the color selections a bit poor at your hardware store? I want you to take the power of the mixing into your own hands! That is right, you can mix those stains just like paint to get your perfect color!
I recently refinished my mother’s dining table. She asked if I could match the color to her existing chairs. As you can see here the bare wood of the table is MUCH lighter than her chairs.
When I went to find stain for the table, I was a bit grumpy because I couldn’t find what I wanted. So, I purchased 4 different colors in small cans. I mixed the two colors in the picture above, together in equal parts in a jar. (Be sure to mark your jar. It looks a lot like my morning smoothie. I learned the hard way. YUCK!!!) After trying a couple coats on underside of my table I was satisfied. It looked beautiful!
As you can see here, it is a perfect match! You would have thought they were purchased together. Happy mommy:)
