Project Type: Existing Resand + Stain
Duration: 4 Days
Scope: Sand, Stain, and Seal existing White Oak floor.
Project Location: West Linn, Oregon
Material: 4″ White Oak common grade
A client had just recently purchased a ranch house on acreage in West Linn, OR. While doing updates to the house they decided to change the color of their existing white oak floor. The designer, Alison Van Delden from Garrison Hullinger Design specified the new color to be black. White oak is very difficult to stain black due to some non porous sections of the wood. The stain just does not sink it which results in a blotchy color with lots of variations. After about a week of mixing stains and pigments I finally came up with the darkest stain combination that I’ve ever seen. Needless to say, I’m very pleased with the way this floor turned out!
