    Rit has a new dye called dyemore - can dye certain plastics. Also food coloring mixed with 'Future' floor wax might work? There's something called Idye poly -made for nylon etc.,  sold at Joannes.     Will look deeper into all your suggestions - big thanks!

  11. Need advice on doors...

    Can you use wood putty to fill in the holes - then paint a base color on the doors similar to the color of the wood, next - with cheesecloth (I think?), stain over the the base coat, creating a grain?? Experiment 1st on scrap pieces.
