Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interior wood satin- linen white Absolutely love it! My floors turned out beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour with Ash hardwood Used for a table I made (4 different colours) and the Cabaret turned out amazing. Easy to use, set in a bit longer than an hour but I put it on heavy, but only took 1 coat and I didn't use conditioner. Would for sure recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it.. Saw the promo for this product and was lured into buying this instead of using conditioner and stain separately. The result was pathetic. Total junk. Top one is with conditioner. Bottom one is done with Ultimate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stain on red oak Great stain. I use it with a brush then after 3 to 5 minutes wiped it with the grain in the wood to get the final finish I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice finish I felt compelled to write a review due to the one low rating. For me the stuff worked excellent to give a very nice and rich finish. I went with 2 coats.. wait at least a day to apply your next coat or your clear. I am very happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Stain Always my go to stain, its easy to use, can be applied with different methods i.e. brush, foam, foam brush or cloth. 2 coats with light sanding between was more than enough to give me the finish I was looking for

Rated 1 out of 5 by from False colour on given images. I bought this to use on floating shelves I made, thinking it perfectly matched our new flooring. I was just going off of the colour on the can. Way off. Our floors are a nice rich walnut colour with lots of highlights and lowlights, but nothing this dark. This stain looks like melted milk chocolate in the can but applies about as dark as fully roasted coffee beans. Is it really that hard to take an honest photo of the product and put that on the label? What's the point of even having an image for reference? Totally stupid, can't undo it, now what. Besides that, it's a fine stain product I guess. If you want to compare with something, I recommend asking a home depot staff to let you do a sample blotch on your material from a small can. Otherwise you're truly guessing and you're going to be wrong.

What do you apply with ? 

Asked by: Teeem3
Hi Teeem3, Apply a test sample of our Oil-Based Interior Wood Stain on a small inconspicuous area before proceeding with the entire job. Apply one coat of stain liberally with a good quality brush or clean lint free rag. Allow to penetrate for 5-10 minutes then remove excess by wiping with a rag in the direction of the grain. Removal of all excess material is essential to ensure proper dry time and proper adhesion of topcoat.

What water based finish coat would you suggest to use over this oil based stain? Can I use Behr Poly Urethane (water based)?

Asked by: Zoran
Hi Zoran, When top coating our Varathane Oil-Based Interior Wood Stain with a water-based finish, we recommend 72 hours of drytime first. For indoor applications, you can try our Varathane Diamond Wood Finish Interior Water-Based. If this is a floor application, we recommend our Varathane Diamond Wood Finish Floor Water-Based or our Varathane Nano Defence Premium Clear Floor Finish Water-Based. Unfortunately, we have not tested our stains with any Behr products.
