Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for reaching out, Julie. If applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain to doors or exterior surfaces we recommend top coating using Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Spar Urethane. If the finish has faded we recommend sanding the surface and reapplying a new coat of the stain. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Satin-Water-Based-Outdoor-Spar-Urethane-250241H/100165652 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

        Let's talk about this! To ensure proper drying with Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain, all excess stain must be wiped away from the surface shortly after application. Tacky product on the surface after a day tends to indicate that not all the excess stain was removed. To help remove the tacky product, we recommend wiping the surface down with clean rags and some mineral spirits.

          I appreciate the ease of use and product consistency. If I run out in the middle of a project I know I can get an additional can and it will blend in perfectly.

          BEWARE: this is a HORRIBLE color
          This color isn’t even close to what it is shown in pictures. First warning; it’s very grey, and very streaky and horrible looking. We sanded down my client’s original hardwood floors, and applied 2 coats of this stain. The first coat was a tad grey, but not terrible, but the second coat was horrible. So streaky, so grey, and just very dirty looking. A horrible product, my clients floors could have been completely ruined and it added multiple days on to our project trying to salavage them.

          That is not what we like to hear! Our Varathane Classic Wood Stains are shown applied to Red Oak, and color may vary slightly depending on the wood species, number of coats, and how long the stain is allowed to penetrate the wood prior to the excess stain being removed. Please also note we do not recommend applying this floor surfaces as the high foot traffic can cause the finish to fade and peel over time.

            That is not what we like to hear, Mike! There are several variables that can impact the color of wood stain, such as the wood species, number of coats, and how long the stain is allowed to penetrate before the excess stain is removed. We recommend testing on a small area or scrap piece prior to beginning your project, to ensure the desired color is achieved. Please give us a call at 800-901-0411, we will be happy to help. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

              Color not accurate AT ALL
              The color weathered oak advertised on the can is not even close to what comes out. It is literally the greyest grey I’ve ever seen. I did a test run on the bottom side of my accent table and immediately with the slightest amount of stain I could already tell the color was way off. Very disappointed.
