i have recently stripped the stairs of 200 layers of paint and would like to finish the project by giving a nice wood finish. My problem is that I would like to match the stairs with the colour of the doors. The doors have been completely stripped and finished with a shellac sealant and clear wax. The doors, I think, were are made from scandinavian Redwood (I could be wrong!), the stairs are pine. I have tried all sorts of sample pot dyes to match the colour but none appear to match. (Teaks, Med Oaks, antique pines etc). I wish the colours shown on the pots match the colour on application!
Other than painting the stairs; does anyone know of a technique, or even a readily available dye/stain that can help me achieve the door colour.
