Gel Stain on Fiberglass Door

Rosie asked 9 years ago

I have used Minwax Chestnut on a fiberglass door; I haven’t applied a coating of this yet, can I use a lighter stain to lighten the darker stain as it doesn’t match the other Trim and Baseboard in the house

Unfortunately not. The dark stain will have to be removed then restained with a lighter color. Adding the lighter color stain now will simply make the overall color darker or push it toward a slightly different color, the background dark color will always show.
