There are a couple of things that you can do. One is to repolish the existing finish and see if it will darken. Try a small area with a cotton swab dippied in alcohol rub gently in a small circle and watch the color to see what happens. If this does not bring the color back then it is the wood which has bleached and the finish will have to be removed and the wood dyed or stained to bring back the dareker color. Pigmented stains are best for this because they haave a higher resistance to fading from UV exposure.
