    Hi all fellow decorators,

    I have a challange for you. :confused: I have a customer with 2 tongue and groove ceilings in kitchen and bathroom. They have a mellow pine stain on them and customer wants them white or just lighter but to still see the wood grain. I cant think of a way to change the colour so dramaticly without using a base colour with would obviosly block out the grain. :cry: If anyone knows of any good products please advise. :rolleyes:

    A good sanding down a coat of dulux supergrip, then sand it down again...revealing the wood underneath.?

    Sadiolin used to make an opaque stain for use on existing stain...that might work...or have a look at their full colour range..they do translucent colours...again for use over existing stuff...

    They might have a nice selection in the Crown paint place just up the road from the police head quarters in Carmarthen... ;)

    If you're sanding off the old finish, you could wet it to raise the grain.

    Did similar several yrs ago, used sadolin extra tinted to opal white. Smell was pworrrr :eek: You can get it in 'classic' which is thin like dirty turps and a nightmare for ceilings. Might be worth looking in your deccie centre for waterbased polyvine ranges. Tho I have'nt used them for t/g yet.

    follow zampas direction for deccie centre lol.

    Seems like everyone's in on the joke but me. :(
    If it's current affairs - I don't really have time for the news. Come on, spell it out for me.

    Yeah I saw that John, but if that's the extent of the joke then Zampa hasn't got much of a career in humour. What's so funny about a a Crown paints outlet near a cop shop in Carmarthenshire? This has gotta be a current affairs thing hasn't it.

    Oh forget it, I give up.

    I believe he's trying to leave show biz behind and break into the glamorous world of decorating.
