Adria,
You understand you will never get the filler the same colour
as the wood (different material).
your best bet is to find a courner ( that no one will see )
and try to get a good balance with the filler/wood.
always use a filler a "little" darker than the wood, so when
you stain the wood (which is always a little darker, you may
get a good balance.
Fill the cracks before you sand, this way you will not have
lumps of filler, use a fine sand paper and go with the grain
of the wood, same when you stain the wood go up and down with
grain.
if you cant get a good balance with the wood/filler, put carpet down.
Best of luck.
John 2000.
