How do I lighten stain on wood moulding?
We are planning to frame our builder-grade bathroom mirror to make it look "built-in" by matching our vanity cabinet stain. The stain expert at Home Depot helped select a fairly close match. The first coat looked pretty good, so hubby decided to add a second coat to make it look richer. However, now it's too dark! Yikes! Is there a way to lighten the stain? If not, is there something to make it look more unique or decorative, like adding a glaze, rather than it just looking like we stained it too dark? I'll try to add a couple of pictures, possibly in the comments section. One picture shows the first coat, and the next shows the "richer" second coat. The sample door of our vanity cabinet stain is shown in each picture for comparison.
