I was in rush to finish up the trip work on a new hardwood floor install (my house).

I grabbed the wrong can and stained about $400 worth of base board and quarter round the wrong color!! To make matters worse, I installed about half of it before I caught the problem. My wife is going to kill me...

Any suggestions short of ripping it all out and eating the cost??

Stain Removal

Did you solve your stain problem?

I've been working with antique doors, stripping and refinishing them. I've found that after the 1st layer of Citristrip, a 2nd will actually suck the stain right out of the wood.

Really, it turns it into BBQ sauce, which you can slush off with a scrubbie and (yes) water. I've got these doors down to beautiful, unstained, unsullied, gorgeous wood. Two thick coats, and leaving it overnight.

I hope you've actually figured out what to do, but keep this idea in your toolbox. It's incredible, wonderful, non-flesh-eating stuff!

Good luck.
