Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goes on well and is very close to the color shown. I have been satisfied with Varathane products and do not hesitate using them. I get what I expect. December 31, 2013
