This homeowner had hardwood throughout their main floor, but it was stained a basic brown when the home was built. They were looking for something lighter and more up-to-date than the brown they had.
We refinished their floor, then stained it with Bona Birch. They liked the color, but it didn’t get rid of all the pink in the Red Oak that they were hoping to avoid. So, we upgraded their sealer that has white stain included and added two coats prior to their coats of finish. This helped reduce the pink tone of the Red Oak, as well as lighten it up some more. They loved the final outcome.
