We live in a log home that has yellow pine on the interior which has been sanded and sealed. After many years, it is now a beautiful warm honey color. We just replaced all the windows. They are aluminum clad outside but the interior is white pine and is supposed to be stained to match. However, all of the stain samples they have shown us look terrible-- they are either way too brown or way too red. We were told that it cannot be matched. Apparently, the contractor for the staining had Home Depot and Sherwin Williams try to match.
Can we match the new windows to the existing wood in our house, and if so, how?
