Lighten Dark Stained Door

Posted By: Bob Hohler

I want to lighten the color of the maine entrance door to the house. It has a dark oak color now.

I have tried wood bleaching on another piece but the result wasn't very good.

Is there a product such as a light colored stain that can be put on after stripping that will bring it to a light oak color?

Would a solution with muriatic acid lighten the dark color?

I know that alternative is to just paint it, but I wanted to try to get it stained a lighter color.
