Back to the flooring patching,
After testing a few different stains on scrap wood, we finally attempted the floor (it’s hard to go backwards when staining wood). Here is the first coat of stain and it’s too light. But that’s alright, you can always go darker but not lighter…
And after 3 top coats of polyurethane, it blends into fairly well.
Once we have furniture in the room you will never notice the patch (unless of course you read the blog post : ) )
