I purchased an acacia wood top table and I want to get the top to match the arms of the wishbone chair featured in the 2nd image. How do I get that result? Can I just paint the top black or I need to get the top sanded and then stained? The arms are the richest black with a matt finish.
Lordy lord, why!?!
Why would you want to remove the contrast, the different colouration and shading of the original, real wood and replace it with something that resembles painted metal?
Anyway, the Google search you're probably looking for is "ebonising wood".
Thanks Jim! The contrast is exactly what I want to get rid of. It's the shape of the table which I like. I was told I could easily paint it, hence why I want to know how to do it the right way.
Hope all is well. Just wondering whether you have made any progress with your table project? It was great to see you get some feedback from the community, I trust it was useful.
