I just refinished my 30 yrs old kitchen cabinets with poly shade honey satin color. My cabinets is flat stile. I cleaned with TSP and sanded down with 220 to wood before I applied Poly shade but still looks patchy and I can't stand the shine. I used satin and still so shinny. Is there any way I can remove the shine and maybe fix the patchiness without stripping again? Can I paint over it? Chalk paint or milk paint?
Asked by: Zsuzsanna
THIS PRODUCT IS A NIGHTMARE! TAKE IT BACK FOR A REFUND AND START OVER. DO NOT USE A STAIN THAT HAS POLYURETHANE.

What's the difference between varnish and shellac?

Asked by: Cliff
One of the primary differences between varnish and shellac is that varnish cures as it dries, rendering the finish impervious to reapplied solvent. Dried shellac, on the other hand, dissolves readily when moistened with alcohol, lacquer thinner or fresh shellac. A varnish coating is typically heavier than shellac, and usually only one or two coats need to be applied.

application brush or spray

Can I spray this product or does it have to be brushed.
Asked by: bob
Yes, but I recommend using a brush. Spraying will leave drips or runs. You can also, use a sponge for smaller jobs.

8 oz. PolyShades Honey Satin Stain and Polyurethane in 1-Step is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid this whole product line. This was recommended to me by home depot for finishing an expensiv... Avoid this whole product line. This was recommended to me by home depot for finishing an expensive solid wood interior door. It's basically ruined. Thick and nasty to apply, I tried using a staining pad (HD told me to do so) and that worked okay but did not put on a lot of color. Then I tried my pricy stain brush and it is basically impossible to keep brush strokes out of it. This stuff is not dark at all. I realized that after applying this, and by then it was too late to put something darker on because the wood was sealed. Tried the espresso color on the other side, and that is so dark there is no visible grain at all. Ugh. If you want stain and poly, do them in separate steps. Don't be lazy like I was. Stain by itself is easy to apply, as is poly. It takes longer but the results will be worthwhile. Lesson learned.

THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY AWFUL PRODUCT. EVERYTHING THE OTHER ONE STARS ARE SAYING, IS ABSOLUTELY 100% TRUE. MINWAX AND HOME DEPOT SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR SELLING THIS GARBAGE!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells!!! I purchased this when I bought wood crates to build nightstands. Thought it'd be easiest as it's 2 steps in one. I did 2 coats in 2 days and let dry outside for a night before bringing one of the nightstands inside. I woke up with the WORST headache ever! I put it back outside with the other one for about 10 days. Now, they are sitting in my living room, can't even bring into the bedroom bc they smell SO bad. Idk what to do. I've lit candles all around, put bowels of baking soda, vinegar and charcoal (all in separate individual containers) all over the shelves to help absorb odor, but nothing is helping. Help!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Rich Color. Smooth Finish So easy to apply. Wash surface, sand lightly, and paint on a coat or two (watch for drips). The results are gorgeous. And, it goes a long way. You will need mineral spirits for clean-up. Made my cabinets look like new!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One of the Worst Products I've Ever Used! Several years ago I used this product on all the newly stripped woodwork in my entire house, without a problem. So it was the first thing I thought of to refinish the top only of an ornately carved, previously polyurethaned oak table. First i used an unopened can from the old stock from the woodworking project. As soon as it touched the tabletop, a zillion bubbles formed. They did not go away as it dried. I ended up applying six coats, trying a minimum of brushing with the recommended natural bristle brush, and sanding each coat off.. The last two or three coats were diluted with paint thinner. Same result each time. Then I ordered a fresh can. Same problem - bubbles (not as many, but enough to ruin the surface). The new can had another problem - no matter how carefully I applied it with the recommended natural bristle brush, the surface was full of brush marks. This product is a complete wast of time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Just refinished our living room floor. It is about 400 sq. ft. Follow the directions and be patient. We ended up using three coats, and waited at least 16 hours. It was pretty cool weather, and humidity was high. We didn't sand between coats but we did use a bit of steel wool to help with a few of the bubbles. Excellent product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A BAD idea Minwax makes stains. Minwax makes polyurethane. In and of themselves they are decent products but that depends on your taste in finishes - rubbed oil or wax - or a surface coating like lacquer or polyurethane. But this product is like putting onions together with ice cream. Just a bad idea. It was impossible to control the product on the wood surface. It dripped and sagged. The color was uneven when applied (and I used the pre-stain conditioner). The directions speak of "tipping" the coating with a natural bristle brush. "Building up the depth of color" your want. Hogwash. It went on like brown paint. It dried too fast to do the "tipping" It turned into a disaster I had to remove and do all over. YUCK. Don't wast your money. And Home Depot... Why do you let a vendor fill your shelves with a product like this?
