I'm designing my new living room from scratch. One feature I would like in
the room is very dark brown or black wide floorboards. I'm looking at
getting unfinished oak boards and painting/staining them black.
Does anyone have any experiences with colouring boards like this?
Should I use paint or stain, or is there some kind of colored wax treatment
I should try?
If I'm painting the boards, do I still need to apply a hardener and sealant,
or is this just needed after applying stain?
Should I use any particular types of paint/stain?
Thanks for any tips/experiences you can share.
