Help with mismatched stain
Hey everyone. I am having a problem with my new cedar garage door not matching up to the shutters on my house. The shutters were stained by our builder last year. The product they used was this http://www.duraseal.com/sections/products/cs/stains/pen-fini.htm in antique brown. This stain was used throughout the home, on our floors, trim, front door, fireplace mantel.
Now, after a recent hail storm we had to replace our garage door so we decided to replace it with a cedar door. I wanted to match the shutters so I bought the same stain but it has come out quite a bit darker. We like the color but we want the door to match the shutters.
Is there anything that can be done? Is it possible to lighten the door or should we try to darken the shutters?
Thanks for the help.
