stain over stain

I have tried painting over stained base boards and am not happy with results. I tried using a deglosser, so that I could limit sanding in the house. If I decide not to paint, the base board stain needs to be darker to compliment the furniture. Is it possible to apply a darker stain over a medium oak color without stripping?

Probably would have had better results painting over stain by using a good primer first.As for sanding you only needed to lightly rough up the surface.

If the baseboards are sealed with polyurethane you could use a poly with stain in it such as Minwax Polyshades to possibly darken them.If they are stained only and have no poly or any other coating/sealer on them then stain could be applied.

Lightbulb Stain or paint

Thanks for the help. I have been closed up working in a small room for too long.
