Re: Matching the finish of old wood floor
The best thing to do would be to pull a piece of trim or flooring from an inconspicuous location and take it to a contractors paint supply and have them color match the stain for you. Kelly Moore and Sherwin Williams are two that have this ability, Dunn Edwards is another. You will also need to take several samples of the wood you're going to stain so that they will have something to apply their tests to. They can help you choose compatible stain and top coat finishes as well, including proper application technique and equipment needs.
