Questions & Answers

can I use this on painted doors?

I have wood doors that have been painted many times. I have been able to strip off most of the paint but it's not a perfectly clean wood surface. Can I use this product to stain the door over some remnants of old existing paint? I've seen different things online mentioned a paint/stain combo approach but I am skeptical.
Asked by: dcorr
Yes, I used this on a storm door that had been painted dark Green and it worked like a charm! Waited for the coats to dry before applying more to obtain the coverage I wanted.

The can says 'Ideal for VERTICAL surfaces'. I would like to stain some stair treads. How would that hold up with foot traffic?
Asked by: IndplsSteve
We do not recommend applying our Varathane Gel Stain to floors. For this type of application, we recommend staining the stairs using our Varathane Premium Wood Stain prior to protecting the surface with our Varathane Floor Finish Polyurethane: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-3X-Dark-Walnut-Premium-Wood-Stain-266167/203332254

Gel stain vs. oil based stain

What is the difference in the 2 besides the price?
Asked by: cloe
Gel Stain works on several different surfaces almost like a paint where as the oil base stain is primarily used on unfinished woods

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this color! This is a reorder. I used this stain to change my dated honey oak cabinets to a rich, modern walnut. The stain was easy to use once I figured out a faster method to apply 3 coats and a coat of poly to each side of the 60 cabinets and drawers!
