Been a reader for a while , getting tips and researching some things - this is my first time posting.
Bottom of cabinet had water damage and I sanded it out and got some stain to try to match as close as possible.
But, the sanded area is not taking the stain at all. It is way, way lighter than what it should be and is no where near the original color.
I read where using a coarser grade of sand paper will allow the wood to absorb more color, but before I start again, I wanted to ask if there is anything else I can do to get the spot darker and as close to the rest of the finish
