Hello. I need help color matching polyurethane. In the photo, I am trying to finish the right side to match the deep, golden color of the left side.
The left side was finished with Parks Pro sanding sealer and poly. The right side currently only has Parks Pro sanding sealer applied. I don't know how the color on the left side was acheived. I've been trying to color match the poly. I've gotten closest by mixing the poly with burnt sienna oil paint, but that comes out too redish.
Here's an updated photo of the first one I posted.
Left: Finished floor that I am trying to match.
Middle: Previously coated with Parks sanding sealer. Over the dried sanding sealer, I brushed on Cabot Colonial Maple oil stain and let it sit for 10 minutes. I then wiped it off.
Right: Parks sanding sealer only.
I'm getting a bit closer, but I'm still not there yet. The color seems right, but it's not dark enough.
