I had to piece in the wood floor on the kitchen I am renovating. The house has white pine flooring which on first inspection looked like typical 1x stock that had been stained and then i later found out what seemed like "bartop" applied the varnish was so thick.... 12 50 grit belts and 40 discs of 60 grit later....
Anyway, the new floor is that nice bright white of fresh cut pine. The old floor looks like it is older than the approximately 30 years it has been down. It is darker white with some brownish and reddish shading.
I can get you a better picture of the new pine but this is what the old looks like.
I have a coat of shellac and a coat of the enduro var on right now and before I do my final coats I wanted to tone down the whiteness of the new floor. I know I wont get an exact match and so does the homeowner. Spraying isnt an option I have to brush. I was thinking of adding a little red/brown tint in a thinned down mix like toner and brushing it on. What are your thoughts or do you have an easier fix?
Thanks in advance!
