Q:I want to make my kitchen cabinets darker. They are really old. What do I need to do before applying this stain?
by|Apr 13, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Penny, thank you for your question. The Transparent Fast Drying Wood Stain should be used on bare wood. If your cabinets are painted or stained, this would not be the right product to use. If your cabinets are bare, then you'll want to sand in the direction of the grain using 150-grit sandpaper. Then, use the Water-Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner to ensure a uniform finish. If you have any other questions, please reach out to us directly so that we can learn more about your project. Have a great day! -Giovanna

    Q:I am restoring a white oak “secretary”. It is probably 100 years old. The customer would like the color to be exactly the color of the wood. I did a sample using plain Rubio, wax free shellac and a spray poly. All of them “darkened” the wood. Ideas?

    A:  Hi Richard - Thanks for your question. While its hard to say what paint/stain color will match the wood exactly, I can recommend using our Fast-Drying Water-Based Polyurethane instead. This product has a crystal clear finish that may work best for your project. Have a great day! -Christina

      Q:What is the application 'temperature range'? That is, under what temp. can this stain be used? No where in the ad, specifications or documentation does it get mentioned. It's totally missing This should and is part of normal paint/stain specifications.

        Q:Is the white more like a beige? It looks like it in picture.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Ejj4, thanks for your question. White Wash Pickling is considered a white stain color; however, since this is a transparent coating, the color of the wood will affect the final color of the stain. You can also control the color with the number of coats you apply and by how long you leave on the excess stain before wiping it off. Enjoy the rest of your day! -Christina

          Worst Stain Ever!
          Put this can of stain where it belongs, in the trash! I have been using all kinds wood stain with my business for years. This one is by far the worst to say the least! Destroyed the finish work on my customers product. Can said to let the stain penetrate for 2-3 minutes, but this literally dries in 10 seconds or less.... no I'm not kidding. There are now blotches and streakes all over. I have used several Behr wood stains and they have all been terrible! They need to stick with paint only.

            This product finish is very nice, bought it specifically for a project I'm am working on and the finish is beautiful. It made the maple wood a rich dark color. Really worth it and it laid down very smoothly.

            The bad reviews are USER ERROR. This stuff’s great
            FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. Used the pre stain conditioner, let that dry for 20 minutes. Applied the stain with a foam sponge brush, didn’t wipe off excess. Turned out really nice. These bad reviews are obviously not following the directions, buying the wrong color, or don’t understand how different types of wood change how the stain looks. Love how easy this stuff is to clean up, and almost NO smell. Used this indoors easily.

              Looks nothing like the tin
              This stain ruined my baseboards! My flooring contractor found this golden oak color to match with existing baseboards in my living room. But once the installers applied the stain, it looked more like a low quality walnut stain. It's way too dark, and looks nothing like the photo on the tin. Now we have to remove the stain and delay the project. Don't buy Behr stains!

              Hello Lang, thank you for your review. I'm very sorry to hear that your stain didn't turn out the way you expected. That is not the experience we want for our customers, and I can understand your frustration. Transparent stains are influenced by the original color and tone of the wood, which can impact the finished color. To fix the issue, I recommend removing the color by sanding or stripping. Make sure the baseboards are clean and dry before conditioning the bare wood with our Interior Water-Based Wood Conditioner. Once clean and dry, restain the surface. It may be best to use a new color, and you can test that on a small inconspicuous area beforehand. I want to assure you that your 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! -Lina Behr

                Hi Esmer, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the wood stain was much darker than expected. I can understand your disappointment since it was applied to a new table. Customer satisfaction is very important, and our Customer Care team is on standby and ready to help. Please contact us directly so we can further assist you with a resolution. In the meantime, I'd suggest removing the stain by either sanding or using a stain & finish remover. After removing the existing stain, apply a coat of our Water-Based Wood Conditioner, and then the Water-Based Wood Stain in a lighter color. Again, our Customer Care team would like to hear from you to see how we can help. -Ronald Behr

                  Worst stain I've ever used.
                  I make stuff for clients. And Home Depot stop selling the varathane premium stain. So I figured I'd give this a try, because it had the color I needed.... It does not go on evenly or consistently. It does not wipe well with rags. It is absolutely the worst stain I have ever used and now I have to stand and redo my whole project for my client. Not only am I out the cost of the product, but my time having to fix this mess. I do not know how this stain cleared for selling in stores.

                  Hi Thecrookedcarpenter, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear the Transparent Water-Based Interior Wood Stain did provide an even or uniform finish. This is not the level of performance expected from this stain and certainly not the experience we want for our customers. To fix this, I recommend removing the coating by sanding and ensuring the surface is clean and free of sanding dust. Condition the wood with Behr Interior Water Wood Conditioner B2080, and once dry, recoat with more stain. 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! - Randy Behr

                    Specifically for the White Wash Color
                    If you have a small project and your goal is to lighten the wood you're working with, I would recommend this product. I've been staining wood for years, usually only with oil-based stains, so I had really low expectations, but this stain surprised me. I had found old edge-banded plywood shelves in the attic of a house I bought so I thought I would try to reuse them. The stain dried really uniformly and changed the color to a beautiful beachy sun-bleached look. Worked out for me.

                      Do Not Trust Behr
                      Do not trust Behr. Their quality sucks. We bought 4 cans of Golden Oak but 1 of the cans is a completely different color as shown in the picture. We did one whole bedroom of one can and started in the second room for which we needed to start the second can. And the second can was a completely different color. We now have no idea what color we are applying to the rest of the floors to continue.
