Am I the only one confused? My pre-coffee brain can't comprehend much but my observation is that you are adding a solid stain where one does not exist. Where does the removing come in?

A pressure washer, some money, and an oil based coffee stain may help undo this mistake before it turns into a PITA forever.

@ CD Painting, this is an Un-Do on the new solid stain cut-in. Remove Solid stain, bring back to wood grain, stain with TWP. It's so fresh, considering pressure wash and then sanding.

Solutions are welcomed.

So, the HO started cutting in with solid-color stain and stopped, is that right? Now they want you to fix their mistake for them and start fresh?

Sand,wash, stain.

I always cringe when I see homeowners cut in like that. They do it, and then they're surprised by lap-marks and shiners.

Masking tape on a deck.. hahaha. If you can't cut in a deck, you need to never touch another brush. For the painter called in to fix: Sand off that solid, use a sodium hydroxide stripper to take off all the remaining finish, acid neutralize and you'll have a fresh surface to apply the TWP.

A solid water based stain to accent will work.
