I stained the door to my sewing room too dark. :( I stained it at the same time as the closet and it also ended up being too dark.
I left it hanging in the doorway since I finished that room to see if I could live with it. Nope, I can't. It will bother me every time I see it during the next 15 years we plan to live here. So, I figured this was a problem easily solved by 80 grit sandpaper.
It doesn't look so dark in the sunlight, but trust me, it looked very dark in that closed hallway.
contour sanding bits. I think this is good enough to stain now. I don't believe I have to get it back to pristine douglas fir.
Update on Friday: It's still a little darker, but it's better than it was.
