Hello AT, I just had my floors refinished and they used the same BAC wiping stain from Sherwin Williams that my cabinets were done in. The cabs look like West Elm furniture, very dark espresso, but the oak floors turned out kind of golden pecan! I hate them! My trim is pine and stained Pearwood, also Sherwin Williams and my doors are also pearwood and have a great diamond pattern in a golden oak color. They look just like Frasier's apartment doors!

But now the floors are a completely different color and I thought they would be dark. The floor guy said I should have used an alkaline stain if I wanted them dark. Is there any way to fix this? Please help! Connie Anyone??
