Match stripped baseboard to doors -stain?


I stripped the baseboard on the hallway because it was heavily covered in paint splotches. But now it is many shades lighter than the doors and trim in the hallway. The doors and trim were old, but with a little denatured alcohol they looked great again! So I don't want to strip them as well. I want to finish them with another coat of shellac I think.

My thought was to stain the baseboards as close as I can to the door color. Then I would chellac or varnish? over the stain. Is this a good idea?
