Colored Stain for Wood Furniture

Colored stain finishes have become very popular. If you’re looking to add some color to your woods surface, colored stain will give you the look with beautiful long lasting results. Add color to your home and create a unique look by refinishing your wood furniture with colored stain. You can match other pieces of furniture you have or create new finishes for a stylish look.

Refinishing Wood Table with Colored Staingrey colored stain for wood

We took this lovely old table that was painted white and found solid oak wood underneath. We decided to use a new weathered grey tone stain on this table. We varied the degree of transparency by adding a second coat of grey stain. You can still see down to the original beautiful oak grain. However, the new gray stain creates a designer finish. In addition, we painted the legs black with a pearly glaze applied over the black paint. The refinished table with the colored grey stain was just what our clients wanted to meet their stylish home with grey accents.

Some optional ways of creating an antique look would be to use gray antiquing stain over a white base. Or, you could use Burnt Sienna glaze over a grey stain.

TIP: Test the transparency level of your stain on the underneath side of the table.

Each type of wood will accept the stain differently.  Hardwoods do not drink in much color while softwoods accept more color. If the first coat of stain dries too light in value, you can brush on a second coat for a stronger level of color.

TRENDING NOW: Some new vogue stain color options are; light old rose pink, celadon green and Robbins egg blue.

The richness achieved through staining a piece of beautiful grain furniture cannot be matched through paint. You can experiment with the different hues and what they do to each type of wood to achieve an endless selection of finished effects.

We have used colored stain and tinted stain for many of our refinished wood furniture pieces. Due to the high demand of stylish accents for homes, colored stains are a great option for transparent, natural beauty with character.
