White oak floors just stained... 80s golden?? Help!

6 years ago

After much research on this site over a year, I asked all of the right questions and picked the right stainer... I thought. We finally chose the color in the first pic with a water based poly . I asked to be sure the water base Bona Mega would not turn our color 80s gym floor my nightmare. I was assured oil based would, but not water based. I said that I was VERY picky with color. I asked about a tannin blocker.

We left out of town , and I now see the final results. I am horrified as it is a completely golden tone in comparison to what we picked. Help! I don't want to go through the hassle to have them re-done, but I feel very cheated and not sure I can live with these 80s looking floors.
