Pine Stain Repair

Home made pine stain

The central heating may shrink door panels (the panels inside the door frame)

This will show up as a pale line near the door frame edge. The pale line is unstained wood that has appeared from under the frame. It's easy to restain this pale line.

Srcape off any polish that clings to the edge of the unstained area and prepare a little stain by using half a cup of boiling water and a tea bag. Prod/squeeze the tea bag to extract the max of colour. If you're not happy with the colour try adding a little coffee (!)

Apply with a brush and allow to dry. Carefully apply a little brown shoe polish.
