Are there any paint colors that look like wood?
Have a very dark stained wood all over our modern house. We've done some work in various places and have new, unstained wood all over too -- we've decided we don't like the dark stain and want something to cover all the dark stuff and the new stuff to make it uniform. We want something like cherry wood or mahogany wood (arts and crafts style house). Have looked at all the Behr stains and can't find anything to work.
Already Tried: Behr Stains - solid stains..nothing works - nothing looks like wood.
