I recently stained a new window with oil based maple color but don’t like the color. Like to make it darker. How do I do this?
Use a gel stain with a darker color. The gel stain will easily hide and darken the lighter maple color. Gel stains are very thick and can be applied almost like paint. Work or spread the gel stain to the desired look, blending thicker areas with thinner ones to reach a uniform color and look.
