    You could apply an Opaque Woodstain.

    However, watch out for any possible reactions with using other brands.

    Once you have you painted it, you cant put a wood stain over it, you would have to strip it back,or use the cheats way, and use 'brushwood'

    Further down on the topics page you will see a post 'Lightening up darkwood', this might give you a bit of info.

    You CAN stain over Primer.

    Though it is not meant to be done.

    However, i have done it before with no problems.

    Try do a search for opaque woodstain for interior use. Even for internal and externally COMBINED.

    However, opaque woodstain does not allow any of the woods grain to be shown.

    What's the point of opaque brown woodstain that doesn't let any of the wood grain show through? Although probably not the same formula as brown paint, that's what it will look like.

    Well, with Dulux Trade Aquatech Opaque Woodstain they write, "Where the surface has been previously painted, it will be necessary to strip back to bare wood".

    Hence why i wrote that it aint meant to be done.

    However, i used Dulux Trade Aquatech Opaque Woodstain over Zamix Coverseal. That was 8 years ago and the Woodstain looks as good as it was first done.

    Me think the Dulux Trade Aquatech Opaque Woodstain has adhered well to surface of the Zamix Coverseal.

    Though, it would be dodgy i believe if above was done directly over an gloss/satin finish. Due to adhesion issues.

    As, "gavjbrown" wrote he has only primed the surface at present.

    Years ago i remember when i was an apprentice that on a new-build that the doors wrote on them that they could be painted or stained. This was even so, as the doors had an white primer over them.

    Also, Dulux, when they brought out Dulux Brushwood they claimed it could be used externally. However, after 1 year it would starts to flake. Grrrrrrr.

    I know this cos a painter done his full house with it being facia, eave's & doors etc which resulted in it spliting.

    In other words the reason i am telling the story in relation to brushwood is that Dulux can have there Do's & Dont's which do not allows work out. Therefore some Painters have an tendency to do some of there own technique's. Even when Paint Makers do not recomend it.

    I am sure there is other Painters have done things against the norm so to speak.
