Novice just asking--anything to tone down a 'cherry' finish?

13 years ago

Bought a couple of knocked-down end tables online to go with our 20 yr old walnut bedroom set because we now have the room for real end tables next to the bed. Description said cherry walnut so I took a chance and ordered them. Opened the box and they're more cherry than walnut. Is there any product I can apply to the finish to tone the redness down? Serious woodworkers, please don't shoot me. I'm just asking if there's some type of quick fix, like a rub-on gel stain, etc. I could apply (without having to strip each of the 30 some odd pieces to each table) to take a little of the reddish hue away and darken them up? Short of spray painting them brown. Suggestions please to salvage my online bargains.
