My clothes wardrobe currently has a charcoal color stain. What would you recommend to lighten the color while maintaining the natural grain look?

Not much option I am afraid. Other than applying a solid color stain, lightening a dark stain is not doable. Trouble with a solid color stain is you hide all the grain of the wood while leaving the texture.
