Like any good hair stylist will tell you, you can apply a dark hair colour over a light colour, but not a light over a dark. Pending on what type of topcoat the table has, you can give it a light sanding and then apply GF Gel Stain in a darker color of your choice.
Hi ,I would like to stain my ceiling a darker color.The ceiling is coated with a clear coat acrylic polyurethane,water based, I would like to use minwax wood stain,do I need to sand everything or is there a easier route.
I have a stained oak railing on my stairway ,I sand it down to apply a darker shade stain , but i am not sure if i got all the finish coats off, i ran the nail polish test and nothing change, my question is if the wood is ready for new stain and if so what you suggest.
Problem is that I have areas that I puttied, …in two different color putty and the 50 year old door has some areas darker than others.
Tricia, if this is the Shellac Finish Sealer product I’m thinking of, a light sanding would be required and then you can apply a darker stain over top. I’m not a matchy matchy girl, so I have no problem with the blonde oak floors right now, but my secret plan is to stain them darker. Hi Mike, we have cream colored carpet at the top of our stairs, and natural wood floors at the bottom. Hi Clarke, at the top of the staircase, the riser meets the carpet thatwraps around the top so there is no top wood step, it meets the carpeted landing.
Yes Mana, I’d use Duraseal on cabinets for that same rich dark color, and the same wipe on polyurethane, I like the Minwax formula.
To go from a dark shade to a lighter shade, you must strip and remove the dark shade first. Staining over stain is easy and works beautifully if your applying a dark stain over a lighter stain on raw wood. If you apply wood stain directly over poly, most likely it will end up tacky to the touch (like my headboard example) and possibly have an uneven finish. However, to be safe I would test a small area inconspicuous area before applying the darker stain to the entire top.
Keep in mind there will be a color variance once the two shades are blended, but this can darken up your existing amber. If your cabinets are darker than the cherry stain you want to use, there may be little to no difference.
For the darker stain, I really like the Minwax Stain Products and have also heard rave reviews on Gel Stains which is on my list to try.
We ended up having to replace the electrical throughout the house and unfortunately that meant they had to replace some of the wood panel boards.
You can purchase a wood stain in a matching color to the original boards and with pine it’s likely you may need to apply a wood conditioner to except the stain more evenly. If you don’t like the look of variances in your finish, using a pre-stain wood conditioner can often make a huge difference in the stain looking more uniform. I have oak coloured hardwood floors right through though and am worried how the dark stained staircase will look as I have no intention of changing the flooring throughout but need to modernize to my style a bit. A Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner penetrates the grain of the wood and this promotes uniform acceptance of stain. The original wood panel boards appear to have been stained and possibly waxed or varnished. A wood conditioner on hard wood (such as oak) is not necessary but with soft woods its very beneficial. Also having a very hard time getting a color of stain to match the existing wood trim around the windows.
