Re-staining Pine Doors

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I just stained an unfinished 6-panel pine wood door. I conditioned the wood first then stained it with oak finish. It’s too dark. How do I lighten it? Do I need to sand all the stain off and start over?

Unfortunately you will need to remove all of the stain and start over. Sanding is the best way to remove the wood stain, stripper won't do much.
