Hi Gail,
Below I have listed the application requirements for this Behr stain. The minimum temperature is 40 degrees Fahrenheit.(For best results, a pad applicator is recommended over large areas.)
Must apply between 40-90˚F (4.5-32˚C). Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. The wood surface must be completely dry before application.
Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity. DO NOT THIN PRODUCT. Stir product occasionally throughout application. Test product for penetration and color on a small hidden area before proceeding.
Use a nylon/polyester brush for areas requiring more accuracy. Use of rollers should be limited to rough surfaces only.
Use 3/8” nap or longer when appropriate. A high quality pump sprayer with a variable tip or an airless sprayer with a .015 - .019" tip may be used.
Work in small sections lightly saturating the surface and immediately back-brush or use pad applicator to eliminate puddling, remove excess and evenly distribute the stain.
Maintain a wet edge when applying. Apply product end-to-end or to board lengths to prevent lap marks.
Over application of stain will lead to surface failure including peeling and cracking.
Avoid applying stain too heavily. For optimum performance, coat all six sides of wood.

Answer: 
Hey Gail,
According to Behr's website on their Semi-Transparent stain...
"Must apply between 40-90˚F (4.5-32˚C). Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. The wood surface must be completely dry before application."
As long as it doesn't dip below 40 (near freezing) and you have a rain-free day, then applying this over 40 degrees shouldn't be a problem.
Thanks,
aboveaveragejoe

Answer: 
Hello Sarahv,
Good question! Behr does not make coatings formulated to be in indirect or direct contact with food (FDA approval is needed for such use). Also, water exposure, food stains, cleaning, hot pans, etc. will lead to reduced durability of the paint and an unsatisfactory surface. You might check with Home Depot for another brand's coating that may be suitable for your table.

Hello Mcfly,
Good question. It may take a few days or several hours, depending on the humidity and temperatures following the rain. We would recommend only applying our stain once the surface is dry to the touch. Please be sure to follow all label instructions for best results.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Waste Your Time Has very minimal coverage, will need to do 2 coats. Color was not as advertised in stores. Very disappointed with the finished product. June 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Color but Thin I like the way the stain covers the wood but I was not impressed with how little it covered the surface. I had to use more than I anticipated. After it was all done, it looked good but too costly because I needed a lot. April 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't last 9 months Like many of you reading this review, I read many negative reviews and thought for sure they just didn't follow all the steps nor take the time to do it right. Please do yourself a favor and read my review. I had a brand new treated deck that aged and dried for over a year. I thoroughly washed the deck and let it dry for a week before applying any stain. I applied two thin coats with the temperatures over 60 degrees at night and around 75 degrees during the day. It was dry for a week after I applied the stain. It looked great for the rest of the summer and fall. I thought for sure I was fine. Wrong. As the snow melted, the stain was gone. It made no difference whether it was a place that had carefully shoveled with a plastic blade shovel or a place that I didn't shovel all winter. The stain had worn off. Please do yourself a favor and stay away from this product. You will be thoroughly disappointed that all the time and money you spent to protect it will leave you extremely disappointed. February 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Really Stain This product is not really a stain. A true stain will absorb into the wood and act as a preservative. This product is simply a surface coating and does not weather well AT ALL! It lasted one season and the deck looked bad after one winter. The wood checked and cracked as if there were no treatment whatsoever. I give a rating of ZERO stars. My recommendation is to use an oil based stain that soaks into the wood July 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Less than one year and my deck looks like ..... Took 3 gallons to completely cover a 12x12 deck, two coats a night mare for side railing. Less than one year later it's all peeling. May 27, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OK. Expect better from Behr products -- Dogs? Beware! I used this at the beginning of last summer and after a thorough power washing and several days drying time, followed the directions to a tee. Our ~9 year old deck does not appear to have ever seen any stain or weather proofing products, so I thought this would be perfect. It looked wonderful at first. It was shiny, water beaded on the surface, and after a few days, did not feel sticky to walk on with bare feet. Then the cold weather came. Maryland winters are not terribly harsh, so not sure if this contributed to it but.....it started flaking off. Mostly when my dogs hit the surface. I have claw marks EVERYWHERE they travel regularly. The steps are the worst. So just this week, I reluctantly applied two more coats to hide all the flaking. Looks great again, For now. This is NOT a durable product. Once you start using it, it may not be easy to undo. I couldn't imagine sanding all of this product off. Perhaps it works better in warmer climates. Perhaps it would be better without two 100+ pound dogs using it. Perhaps Behr should re-engineer their product. Who knows? August 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Very Good Stain I started using this product in 2006 and have been using it ever since. I was using a product that had so many health warnings on the label I needed to change. I have used this in 06, 09, 11 and now 14. Really like the soap and water cleanup - and although I reapply every 3 years, that is what the can says for decks. I use TSP followed up with a pressure washer and a Shur Line Deck Pad on a stick and it covers very evenly and I don't have to wreck my knees with a brush. Oh, and my deck was replaced due to tornado damage in 1988 and it looks pretty new. The deck is 12' x 33' with another 65 linear ' of wraparound. June 11, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Look before you leap... Bought this to stain a 100 sq ft 17-year-old treated pine deck that is moderately checked but still sound, though had to replace two boards the ends of which had been destroyed by squirrels with strange eating habits. Chose it because I wanted some wood grain to show through. My advice: read the label instructions BEFORE you leave the store. That way, you can pick up the application equipment you will need. Don’t count on being forewarned by the store clerk. Also, bring your cheaters as the instructions on the can are rendered in 4-point type. The web listing details indicate it can be applied by “spray, roller, or brush”. The can instructions recommend using a pad (which I didn’t have) and don’t mention the roller. I tried a 9-inch, 3/8 inch nap roller, with a very unsatisfactory outcome. This stain is so thin it is almost impossible to move the liquid around and spread it thin with a roller (as you would with paint on an interior wall), so I got a lot of stippling, which unfortunately hid the wood grain. I switched to a ¼ inch roller for the second coat, but that encountered another limitation: most deck boards cup a bit after time, so it was very difficult to finish rolling in the direction of the wood grain because the thinner roller road the edges of each board. I think the whole idea here is to make the first coat only as thick as one might get with a rag wipedown (highly impractical on a deck), let it dry, and then recoat to build up the surface protection. The can instructions point out that overly-thick coats tend to bubble and peel, so I guess I will be doing this again in a couple years. Maybe for that pass I will invest in the pad, although I am not sure how much difference that might make. June 13, 2015
