staining old wood.
My husband and I installed a new wood door (pine). We used a sanding sealer before staining and it turned out just beautiful. However, we live in an house that was built in 1885. We removed the old moulding and had the old stain removed. This is pine also. Should I use the sanding sealer on this moulding or not? Since this wood is older than the new door, will the stain look different? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Anita
