How can I stain vinyl baseboards?

I would like to know if I can stain vinyl base boards? Putting in new laminant flooring and changing old baseboards.

    Why not just get a color that would go with the various colors in the flooring and paint them. I don't know that stain will stick to the vinyl, maybe another Hometalker will have that answer.

    The colors at the store didn't quite match the flooring. I need a darker color. I need a walnut color. Thanks. ☺

    Have you removed them yet? On occasions, they are a different colour or even a woodgrain finish on the reverse side. If not the correct shade it may be easier to stain that to closer to your needs.

    Just another thought, shellac will cover on top of grease so this will definitely stick to your boards and can be stained any colour you like.
