The wood will darken as it exposed to the sun. The varnish job I did on my companionway boards has darkened very noticeably over the last six weeks. I also used clear varnish. The board that is in the track is several shades lighter.
When I finished I was also disappointed with how light it was, but now it is approaching the color I wanted, very rich. Maybe all you have to do is wait.
There are two types of fools...
One says this is old, and therefore good..
The other says this is new, and therefore better...
