What you want to know: Buy your wood stain at Hirschfield’s, not Home Depot! To see my evidence…
Room no. 1:
In the photo above, here’s what’s shown…
ON THE FLOOR: on Left: unfinished new trim. on Right: stain samples from Home Depot.
ON THE WALL: on the Right the baseboards are the original. On the Left are the baseboards which I just stained using stains from Hirschfield’s Paint Store. We are really happy with the final results. I will never buy wood stain from Home Depot again. Hirschfield’s stains just worked. (I didn’t have to pay the $20 matching fee on this one because they found a product that was already the correct color.)
room No. 2, same wood, different stain:
The coloring turned out different on these 3 photos, but these are all the same corner, same room. I did pay $20 for Hirschfield’s to custom match.
I will buy wood stain from Hirschfield’s from now on!
