Covering How can I cover up wood floor stain spill damage?

Due to some stupidity and a large spill, I've got some nasty dark splotches on my wood.

I’ve sanded and cleaned I’ve cleaned the area with white vinegar (which might have been a mistake) and barkeepers friend.

Here’s what it looks like right now: • http://i.imgur.com/beuPk71.jpg

This seems to be more than surface damage and unfortunately it appears the stain has worked its way into the wood itself. Based on what I’ve read there doesn't seem to be a way to fix this without replacing the affected areas of the floor. I want to save this repair for further down the line (maybe re-do the floors at a later time)

In the meantime, barring placing a mat or rug over the damaged area, how do I cosmetically cover up this damage? I know (or at least I think) I can't fix this completely, due to the likely extent of the damage, but I’d like to make this area look passible.

One of my initial thoughts was to try a wood stain. Is it advisable to just try to stain the affected area and how do you effectively color match stains? I’d have some more leeway if I had dark colored wood but since this damage has seeped into my light colored wood – would a stain even be able to cover up and obscure the damage?

Are there any other materials and things I can try out and use to cover up this damage? Any other advice/tips?

Thanks for reading!
