How to refresh wood floors using gel stain

Need to stain a wood floor in your home? True confession: Our floors were the color of a bad spray tan. Somewhere during our house’s 85 year existence, the floors in three, upstairs rooms were refinished in an unflattering shade of burnt ocher and now featured chips and deep scratches.

Once the carpets were pulled, I was left with a line of demarcation upstairs – worn out orange, juxtaposed with chocolatey brown, patina goodness. And compared to the original 1935 finish throughout the rest of our house, team refinished-orange lost by a landslide. The line between good and evil always made our upstairs feel incohesive and unfinished.
