I am thinking about using two different stains on top of each other. I was was wondering if any of you had any advice about how to do this or if it is even a good idea.

The specific problem I have is that I bought a stain that I wanted to turn out more blueish in color. After I stained the piece it turned out more grey, so I'm thinking about using either a more blue stain on top or maybe a greenish stain on top. Should I lightly sand the first coat of stain before applying the second coat?

Any advice or tips would be great!

Thanks for the link! I feel more comfortable tackling this project already. I will definitely try a scrap piece out first! I originally did a test piece and it was fine. I guess the greater volume of the color changed the appearance slightly.
