a good paint store will match stain if you bring a sample of the customer’s pieces ( i usually take a drawer front) and a sample of your wood, since the base color effects the final color. some do it in store, one place i go to sends it out to the manufacturer to color test, it takes about 2 weeks, but it is always perfect.

Have your say...
