Secondly, can you stain dark wood white? You can whitewash any unfinished wood. It can be stained, weathered, or unfinished, but you don't want any shiny finish. My favorite stain color is a dark mahogany, but any stain color will work – they will each just give a slightly different color to the finished whitewash.
Also asked, can you stain wood to be lighter?
There are a number of ways to actually lighten the color of a piece of furniture, but applying a lighter stain over an existing darker color usually does not work. You see all stains are somewhat transparent so the grain of the wood can show through. In fact, a pigmented stain is actually a thinned down paint.
Is there a white stain for cabinets?
