Could I just color the shellac with some of the stain and then brush it on?

That will work for adding color but it may obscure the wood grain you are trying to save.

I get the feeling you are trying to avoid making test samples. They are necessary if you expect to be satisfied with the final results. I would guess that at least 80% of us do it regularly.

I’m not trying to avoid making samples, I’m trying to avoid buying a bunch of different stains/shellac/etc. that may or may not work. I don’t have any of those things on hand (aside from the lacquer), so I am trying to narrow down what would be the best option before I go buy it. I wish there was a place to test these things before buying, but I don’t know where to do that.
