    Hi all , we have replaced a oak door on the landing and I have put 1 coat of varnish on but its no where near the colour of other doors which are a nice orange shade.

    Can I use coloured varnish to bring the colour to the others

    Are you sure the other doors are oak?, orange hue is associated with pine.

    yes it is, they are both varnished with the same PU varnish but the only difference is the age
