Patti, I like it the way it is, but if the woods looks the same it would be very easy to sand it down and apply a stain to get the same color on the woods. Lots of time you don't even put a varnish over the stain. To put on the stain you would use a soft cloth, then wipe it off. I would then rub several coats of tung oil onto it, let it dry, buff with steel wool, repeat several times until you get the look you want.
