I am stripping my oak kitchen table and want to change its color to the contemporary dark brown seen everywhere these days. I was looking through past topics in this forum and found a few people mentionned HC-72 from Ben Moore as the recommended color to use. I checked out that colour (along with a few others such as bittersweet chocolate) and found out that this was a paint, not a stain... Is the table supposed to be painted rather than stained in order to get the dark brown color? The salesperson at the store said that it is possible to make a stain out of paint...was this what was meant when the colour was recommended on this forum????
