this is my first post and I wondered if anyone could give me som advice.
I have just finished sanding the floorboards in my Victorian house, an they have come out a beautiful light yellow pine colour.
I have just been experimenting in one corner with various types o varnish - ronseal clear satin outdoor varnish, sadolin clear and danis oil and all are making the wood come out much darker and very orange. I've noticed that even when I just get it a bit wet it goes the sam dark orange colour.
Is this just the nature of the wood, or is there any way I can seal i and keep the light colour?
