Two days ago I put a Walnut Watco Oil on a new knotty alder door. Prior to applying the oil I tried a couple of their colors on some scrap pieces of knotty alder trim and found that walnut best matched the existing cabinets and trim.
After applying the Walnut Watco Oil to the surface of the door, I realized that it is way too dark. I tried lightening in up by sanding, but this did not help.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to lighten this up? I am thinking of rubbing some mineral spirits or lacquer thinner onto the door, but I am not real sure what this will do.
