Does wood stain come in white?
Also question is, how do you stain wood white?
- Mix paint and water to desired consistency (for this example, I used equal parts).
- Dip rag in mixture and apply it liberally to the wood as you would a stain, wiping over it with a rag to evenly distribute it.
- Dry and repeat coats until desired opacity.
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.
When staining the cabinets white, it is important to use the correct stains and staining techniques. Using a water-based whitewashing stain is the best option for your kitchen cabinets because the application and cleanup are easy, and there are no dangerous fumes to inhale.
