Jacobean wood stain, pallet wood wall covering - Reviews

I'm great with mixing paint colors, but working with stain and wood fillers is a tricky thing. The color I think will be just perfect is Jacobean, diluted with thinner and wiped on with a cloth. Most of our floors are pine so I guess I'm used to the orangey shade - like the dark walnut - but Jacobean wiped off also or next best. Sounds like you already are leaning towards Jacobean and just need a word of encouragement. As for putty, all I know is that it is wise for me to stay away from using it (I make messes with it I try to block from my memory). Might want to put a clear coat on your samples because that will change the look entirely unless, of course, you aren't going to varnish after you stain.
I do love the Jocobean - also as for the putty , usually there is one that when dry is stainable -- Haven't used it in years , so niot too sure now - It will be lovely -- the darker color wioll anchor the room . I don't know if you’ve already painted your kitchen floor, but if I were you, I would choose either dark walnut or jacobean wiped off.

So this month we thought we’d put together a blog post to answer the most common questions we are asked about choosing, applying and living with dark stained floors.


But if you have an exotic wood floor like Ipe or Jatoba, then we will strongly suggest that they should not be stained for two reasons… 1) they already look nice and dark naturally – these are the woods people try to emulate when they stain oak – so why mess with mother nature, and 2) they have natural oils in them that can make them extremely hard to get a consistent, even look. It’s possible to make your hardwood floors solid black if you really want them to be that dark, but a lighter black or Jacobean or Coffee brown might look better in your setting.
A lot of this comes down to the finish system you put on top of the stain not so much the color of the stain itself.
If you use a high-end professional grade finish system like we do at Tadas Wood Flooring, then you won’t have this issue to worry about. Dark stained floors will help anchor a room and give you the freedom to put light, bright colors on the walls – or even just white – that will add brightness to the room. In the end, staining hardwood floors is going to come down to personal choice just like a car color. When you do, if you live in Naperville or the surrounding area, we’ll be here to help transform those beautiful hardwood floors into the perfect shade of stain you’ve been dreaming about.
Pretty much all of the floors we finish with OSMO we stain first with a different brand of stain. I’m trying to find a stain for my family room colums and mantle that will match my dark cherry cabinets. I think it will look good because it will let the character of your wonderful old wood show through while still giving it a wonderful update that will go very nicely with the rest of your kitchen.


That way, the brown tone will stand out against the white ceiling and other furniture, thus giving contrast to your kitchen and giving life to the space. Oak takes a stain very well and we can stain from a light color all the way up to dark ebony. The only difference is the scratch in the dark colored floor will show through more noticeably as the color of the natural wood underneath is lighter. We have used Duraseal and Minwax stains so you should have no trouble with either of those.
It’s because of cheap, poor quality finishes that dark stained floors have this reputation of showing scratches easily. We see a lot on the web about jacobean and dark walnut but not as much about antique brown.
