1 qt. 3X Light Walnut Premium Wood Stain (Case of 2) is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color is a Nightmare Bought this product to stain a shelf in my living room. My goal was to match some mid-century pieces that I own - which are actually light walnut in color. The swatch matched perfectly, but the stain itself was red in tone, just as the other negative reviews below have stated. It was also thick like paint not like a stain and left streaks. Wish I would have seen them before ruining a pricey shelf. Buyer beware!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The stin was easy to apply but the color was... The stin was easy to apply but the color was not light Walnut as labeled. It turned out to be the color of a cherry or redish mahogany, so much darker and more red. We are very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stain color is very RED/ORANGE The quality of the stain in terms of coating is quite good and easy to use. However, the stain color itself is very off. It turned out to be very red/orange much like the other reviews on here stated. I stirred and shook the can VERY WELL, and the color wasnt even close! I had to sand away some of the red and restain with a different color to make it less red. Definitely added more work than was planned. will probably not buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Stain, NOT at ALL the designated color I built a simple white-wood table and wanted to stain and varnish it. I should have tested it on a piece of scrap wood first but I've never had any problems with any of the name-brand stains (like minwax) expecting there to be a possible slight difference in color depending on the wood. Well... THIS stain was supposed to be "light walnut". We all know what a light walnut is supposed to look like. This stain painted on THICK like a paint (not like a stain) and was bright RED/ORANGE. The stain left after wiping most of it off (or trying to, since it's thick) was the same, bright red. So I had to finish the table this way. I dripped/smeared some of the stain onto the can's label (while "painting") where it shows what "light walnut" is supposed to look like. Instead of the soft, light brown walnut color, it's red/orange/brown. Dried the same. This is terrible "stain" and I'll never be buying this brand again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from matched perfectly and dried quickly My husband used this because we started staining a bedframe with an older can of stain and ran out. We found the same brand and color on the website and ordered it and had it shipped to the store. I rated it a 4 because our only option was buying a 2 pack of quarts when we only needed a pint. Lowe's had the product on their website but no option to purchase it and Amazon wanted us to spend at least $35 for free shipping. It would have been nice to just be able to go to the store and buy it the same day but that was our bad luck. Overall the stain came out very well and dried quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RED??? Product contained way too much red in the stain. I did not expect a "walnut" stain of any variety to be red. Cherry, or mahogany, or pecan might be expected to be a little red. Not walnut. Also, the product color did not match the identical name "light walnut" in the similar product, Stain plus Poly. I tested both products on white paper to compare. Not even close.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not anything close to the color on the can as previous reviewers have said. I ordered this in very high hopes that it would be the color shown or at least CLOSE because I have a busy Etsy shop and am trying to find a stain that dries fast that is close to the colors I use from Minwax. Well, this stain does dry much faster, but the color is red/orange! It's almost what I would call a Gunstock not a light walnut. I had the same exact results as a previous poster posted in their photo, and I am experienced in staining. I gave it two stars due to the drying time. If they were to make it the color on the can. I would buy again. Otherwise, they won't be receiving my business for this color. Also, it is absolutely ABSURD that you can only purchase this online. If I could have purchased in the store, it would have been much easier to find a matching color, now I am scared to even buy a different color in hopes that it's close to what I need because I need to buy two and they still may not be close and waste even MORE money.
