Stain? No. More like milk paint
We checked the chips in the store on the aisle and went ahead and bought two different colors. I tried them on a sample of red oak baseboard that I also bought in the store and applied it according to instructions on the can. It came out more like milk paint. It barely absorbs. It hides the grain. And worst of all, the colors aren't even close to what's on the can or the paint chips. The grey looks like spray-can primer and the ebony looks like black milkpaint. I should have stuck w/ Minwax.

Hi there, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that the stain seemed more like paint and covered up the grain of the wood. This is not typical, and I can understand your disappointment. To fix the issue, I'd recommend removing the existing stain by sanding or using a stain stripper, Applying a coat of our Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner, and then re-applying the stain from another can. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Ronald Behr

    I used the BEHR stain to perk up our Pergola. Everything came out beautiful. I was able to match the colors I already had with BEHR stains and followed the directions on the can with drying time and three coats. I did prep the areas I worked on by sanding and washing with TSP (very important if there is any dirt or algae on the wood).

    Hi Bocabroker, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the finish and color did not turn out as expected. The Transparent Wood Stain is designed to add some color, but still allow the wood grain to show through. You have to option of adding a second coat after one hour to darken the color. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Giovanna Behr

    Whitewash Stain is the new black
    The whitewash effect gave me the look I was going for in staining the wood but allowing the natural grain to show through.

    Turned out nicely
    We like the color and application was easy for us first time stainers. Used this for some closet shelves. It wasn’t quite as close of a match to our doors as we thought it’d be, but will look nice anyway. Remember Poplar has a green tint so balance it.

      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
