Topic tags/keywords: pine tip finishing stain matching color

Hello, I am looking for help on matching the color of woodwork. I am replacing a six panel solid pine door(new) in my bathroom plus new moldings. I need to match with a stain or a poly that will come close to match my aged pine moldings inside and outside my bathroom. I was thinking on using amber shellac and then maybe a coat of poly. The aged pine woodwork has an orange, amber tint.
Has anyone ever had this problem and tried doing this?

Please, if you have any ideas let me know.
Thanks, Vinnie

A handful of years ago Jenn and I were trying to match daughter’s crib to existing furniture in her room. We took it to a local paint shop that was recommended by the fellow who painted our house (I really really dislike painting and will farm it out whenever possible). The folks in the shop were super helpful and spent about 45 minutes and opening several tins of stain to get just the right mixture… so I’d recommend finding a paint shop that really knows there stuff and take samples of the stuff you are trying to match and the material you are trying to stain, it worked extremely well for us.
