Love working with this stain!
Water based stain it's hard to apply in general but if you know how to do it, the effect will be generous! We stained our bedroom set and coffee table with gray, and frond door with esspreso. All of the pieces turned out awesome! The next project - stairs in esspreso color and seriously I can't wait to do it!

    This product removed previous pickling and left walls blotchy and less white than they had been
    I applied this water-based white pickling stain to an old wall that I pickled years ago with an oil-based pickling stain. I was worried it might create too dense a white finish, since the wall was somewhat white to begin with, but I needn't have worried. It appears to have removed some of the previous pickling, but left behind so little whiteness that I know have a blotchy surface that looks more wood-colored than the previous white pickled wall. I mixed the stain throughly, applied it with a brush, and let it sit for about five minutes, per instructions, then wiped off the excess. I could give it a second go, but I think my technique was okay and the product just may be too thin. The wall has no polyurethane or varnish on it and should have been able to absorb the stain. The only good thing this situation is that, because the wall is now barer than it was before, I can still try a different product. (Photo attached to show how I seem to have gone backwards rather than forwards in whiteness.) I will still have to deal with the uneven result of this one. If other products prove similar, then I will know that I am at fault, but I don't think that will happen.

    Hi Isleofnewyork - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that it looks like the old stain color was removed after applying our interior stain on top! To fix the finish, I recommend removing the current stain from your wall so you're back down to bare wood (our interior stain is recommended on bare surfaces only), sanding the wood in the direction of the grain using fine-grit sandpaper (#150) until the surface is smooth, then pretreating the area with our Water-Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner before reapplying the stain. Please feel free to reach out to us directly so we can assist you with this further. We hope to hear from you! - Sara Behr
      A terrible product I DO NOT recommend that anyone use it.
      This is a very very terrible product. I have use Minwax and Varathan oil based products from Home Depot for years and have never had this type of problem. The project is a workbench that I am fortunately building for myself and not a customer. If I were building this for a customer I would have to trash it and start over losing $1500.00 in material and labor. The wood is red oak with the wood conditioner applied per the instructions and sanded with 220 grit sandpaper per instructions. I applied the stain with a foam brush and wiped off the excess stain per the instructions. The layers of stain did not blend together as normal with oil based stains. Also the stain does not have a uniform color to it. Wood is an organic product so there will be some variations within the project, but not to this extent. I have been building furniture for over 15 years and have never experienced anything like this. It would be nice if Home Depot or Behr would compensate me for the loss.

        Image on bottle matches door perfectly, but is actually way darker and not even close when applied to wood.

        Golden Oak isn't golden at all
        There is no hint of a golden hue to the Golden Oak color, at least not on the pine trim to which I applied a coat (see photo). It is much more a straight brown. I'm used to depictions of colors being inaccurate and I know that the stain can look different depending on the wood, but this one wasn't even close in my opinion. Glad I tested it, sad that I'll just be disposing of it.

          Used on Hatchbox Wood-fill PLA 3D printing filament
          Not knowing if this would work at all, I sanded the crap out of some 3D printed parts I made with Hatchbox wood-fill PLA filament using 60 grit sandpaper and brushed it on with a cheap 1" wide sponge brush I got at an art store. It worked *really* well. Made what originally looked like just tan plastic look like old weathered wood. I did put two coats on most of the pieces because they looked a little too light after they dried. I hit it with a very light coat of gloss spray paint to seal it after it dried, but I don't think it really needed it. The 3D model I used is from the "Thingiverse" website and is item number 4652955 (I don't know if links are allowed in reviews so I'm not putting the direct link). Note: I'm on the Home Depot page for the "Jacobean" color, but as I'm leaving this review it's listing the Walnut color in the title. What I used is Jacobean B4504.

            At first I bought the small can because I want to check the colour. I tried it in different kind of woods because I have lot of projects at home, and I do not want any reddish or yellow tones anymore. In the photo you see bamboo, pine, two oaks and maple. Obviously, the final color is different when the base is different, but it is very nice. Warm brown walnut color, not very dark. My first project was this bamboo vanity. I applied two coats. It was natural bamboo color, but now is special walnut, and I like it. I have ordered the biggest can for other projects I have at home, but I think this product should be on the shelves of all Home Depots, after all is Behr. Why do we have to order it online?

            Different color
            Hey, Behr, why don’t you put an ACTUAL picture of how your wood stain on wood. It’s not that difficult. Look, I did it for you. This is how you “Special walnut” looks in real life. Pretty red, don’t you think? Now I have a whole can of your wood stain that I can’t return or use. Great strategy of selling more products. So disappointing. The only good thing about this product is that it’s water based and was available at my local store.

            Hi UnsatisfiedCustomer - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that this stain color didn't turn out as expected. The color should match up to the stain color on the label once the product has been stirred for a few minutes before use. While the color of the bare wood will affect the overall stain color, I'm concerned that the finish in your picture has a red tone. To fix, I recommend removing the stain, conditioning the bare wood with our Interior Water-Based Wood Conditioner, then reapplying the stain with a new can. We'd like to assist you with this further. Please don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Care team directly. We hope to hear from you. - Sara Behr

                I tried out this water based stain in the interest of finding a more eco-friendly option compared to the oil-based stains I've used in the past. In short, I can say there is a very steep learning curve here and I still haven't figured out how to get the results I'm looking for. The stain ended up having a very grainy and blotchy appearance on the wood as it seemed to absorb much less consistently than oil-based products I've used. It was bad enough that there's no way I'd want to move on to applying a finish coat over it. Perhaps sanding more, limiting myself to tighter grained woods, using a pretreatment, or something else is missing but the end results were very artificial looking (as you can see in many of the pictures from other reviews as well.) On the positive side, a little finish went a long way so the coverage was pretty good. And the odor wasn't that of harsh solvents you typically get from oil-based finishes. That said, I really didn't like the smell. It's something between spoiled milk and earthiness that was fairly off-putting. Perhaps you'd get used to that but I certainly was happy to put the lid back on the can and throw away the rag.

                Hi Slobrewer - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the finish looks grainy and blotchy! To ensure a uniform finish, we recommend sanding the surface in the direction of the grain using fine-grit sandpaper (#150) until smooth before pretreating the wood with our Water-Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner. To fix the finish, I recommend applying a second coat in the direction of the grain with a brush or clean cloth, allowing the stain to penetrate 5-10 minutes, then wiping the excess off with a clean cloth (please keep in mind that this will darken the color). For further assistance with your project, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We'd be happy to help! - Sara Behr
