View Full Version : Staining wood/windows and doors

Mar. 17, 2012, 08:37 PM
so I'm debating on trying this myself, but also am open to hire someone. That said I'm looking for a cherry-ish/mahogany finish on the pine pella doors/windows.... I assume I'm going to have to mix stain to achieve this color, none of the stock minwax colors seem to be what I want...suggestions welcomed, however I'm betting when it comes down to it, we will hire a professional! ;-)

get a piece of the same type/tone of pine and try stains out on it. The color of the stain varies wildly from wood type to wood color to even wood grain!

But if hiring a pro is possible...well, never a bad idea! :winkgrin:

No new window photos?
