1 qt. PolyShades Bombay Mahogany Gloss Stain and Polyurethane in 1-Step is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as intended. If you don't know the basics on applying a finish, don't bother. It's not a classic "stain", it's a colored "finish". Don't expect an easy brush on and done. It doesn't work that way. The 2 best ways to apply it are spray or hand wipe. I prefer wipe. 3 coats with a reliable eye and pressure bring the color out. It's a phenomenal product that can give your old, tired furniture a new pop! Buy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised I was skeptical about using a stain & poly in one product. I usually use Rustoleum stain and a separate polyurethane but apparently the stain is backordered everywhere. I was hoping to finish my project over the weekend and streamlining the finishing steps was appealing. My son picked the color (the piece is toy storage for his room made of pine). I used a natural bristle brush and found the wider brush worked better and using long smooth strokes is ideal for this application. I was working in my garage on a 70 degree day and this stuff dries really quickly, so beware and make sure you keep moving to avoid it looking blotchy. My first coat looked a little rough, but the next day I wiped the piece down with 0000 Steel Wool and gave it another coat and the finish is beautiful. I can see myself purchasing this again for future projects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good if you are not color matching If you have the time or care a lot about your project, I would not recommend this product. Unlike traditional stain, you can not wipe on more or less to change the color. This means if you do not like the first coat, you are more or less stuck with that color, where a regular stain is much more forgiving. Also you you miss a spot, It can be noticeable to a keen eye after a few coats. Now where this product excels is its ease of use and speed. It saves you the stain step and makes it staining and poly quick and easy. Just a few coats and you are good to go. For a basic project this is great, but for more professional work, I would use regular poly and stain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong! This works beautifully! You really need to do two coats, but as long as you follow the instructions on the can (like using a natural brush) the finish comes out wonderfully.
