Stain on the Orchid?

As long as your Orchid has not been primed or painted you can stain it, if you wish.  I have often thought of staining the exterior of a dollhouse and then doing folk painting over it would be a jolly thing to do.

You can do it, but the luan plywood doesn't always look good stained. Also "stainable" wood filler often isn't as stainable as it claims to be.

But as Holly and Carrie said, if you don't like it you can paint over it, so there's no harm in trying!

I seem to recall there was a version of the Arthur that came with a chart for the folk painting.  My only problem with the stain is that it can bring out the grain, and the wood grain is 'way out of scale for a 1:12 dollhouse.  Maybe prime it and paint it a wood stain color?
