Question ID: 562385
I redo my kitchen with espresso dark-brown cabinet and now I want to
re-stain my handrail to match the cabinet but I am unable to find a
wood stain has that kind of stain. Do you know where can I found it?
The color of the stain I want is same as this ikea bookcase (black-brown color).*10173-

My cabinet is Glam from scavolini
Is that a wood stain or paint?

alexhuang - 

The website you provided showing the color you want clearly states,
"Printed and embossed acrylic paint, clear acrylic lacquer."  From the
glare on the picture, I immediately thought "paint".  Not only that,
but it shows absolutely no wood grain.  Even if you had a dark stain,
some wood grain would be present.

Would you be willign to accept wood stain suggestions, close in color
to that self as an answer?

If you see the my cabinet (, you can see it
has wood grain, it is not paint. It is very solid stain, Since the
wood grain still showing ,I don't think it is paint. Maybe the ikea
link I provided is miss-leading sorry.

My apologies.  I read your question as you wanting to know if the
coloring on the cabinet (not the one you have) was stain or paint.

There is no answer at this time.

Hi alexhuang, 

See page 29 of this document (pdf). 

Scavolini - Glam kitchens

It contains the colour specifications for all of the Glam cabinets. It
would help if you told researchers which colour your cabinets are.

Additionally, if you can obtain an original copy (not printed on your
home printer) of this brochure, you should be able to take to to a
good paint store and have them mix a finish that will match.

Note that the finish is not stain but lacquer. Lacquer provides a
harder more protective surface than stain, while allowing the
woodgrain to show through.

Good luck,
