It is pine...wanted something that was light weight. I used a tint called Jacobean....slightly darker than a dark walnut. I tested it on a kick panel and it looked too light, but when I stained it, the Jacobson looked too dark. Once I added a urethane coating, it lightened it up just enough. You can tell there is a difference, but most of it comes from grain.
I saw your post and looked for those colors, but my local Ace Hardware didn't have anything like that. I'll post pics tomorrow when I get everything anchored and the urethane dries.
