Classic Grey and Jacobean Custom Stain Blend: Transforming Red Oak Hardwood Floors

When it comes to enhancing the natural beauty of hardwood, the right stain combination can work wonders. Our recent project featuring a custom stain mix using Minwax proved just that. By mixing 2 parts Classic Grey stain with 1 part Jacobean stain, we achieved a stunning medium brown hue with captivating grey undertones, breathing new life into red oak number 1 grade hardwood planks.

Red oak stain enthusiasts will appreciate how this unique blend allows the wood's intricate grain patterns to shine through while showcasing a harmonious marriage of warmth and depth. The resulting color is not only versatile but also aligns seamlessly with farmhouse aesthetics, making it an ideal choice for those who appreciate rustic charm. The Classic Grey and Jacobean stain combo is equally well-suited for modern spaces, where light-colored walls and minimalist design elements can help create an inviting and contemporary atmosphere.

To seal in the beauty of this custom stain, we applied our upgraded oil-based polyurethane finish. This top-quality finish offers not only protection but also a luxurious matte sheen that adds an extra touch of elegance to the overall aesthetic. Whether you're aiming for a farmhouse-inspired ambiance or a modern look, this Minwax stain combination is sure to turn your red oak planks into a stunning centerpiece that truly captivates.
