Help! Trying to match old floor finish. All wrong...
Ok. Help. I messed up big time and don't want to again. I applied the wrong stain and just spent hours removing the mistake.
I removed an old built-in closet and was trying to get the floors underneath to match. I patched part of the floor with pine (at least i think it's pine).
Does anyone know what kind of floor finish this is? In dim light, it looks kind of red. Under sunlight, it looks a little bit orange, yellowed. I think the finish just yellowed with time. The house is pretty old.
Obviously, I'm not trying to get a perfect match, just trying to finish the floor so it doesn't look crazy. The last stain i put in looked horrible. Wrong color wrong everything.
Anyone have any advice? I've sanded away part of the original floor to show what the 220-grit sanded wood looks like if that helps.
I was thinking it might be Danish? Tung?
