A: Let's see if we can help, Christine. To best neutralize the red color of your wood, we recommend first staining the wood using Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain and then applying the whitewash after the stain has fully dried. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Kona-Premium-Fast-Dry-Interior-Wood-Stain-266161/203332251 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14
A: Happy to help, Kayla! Our recommendation is to leave items in a well-ventilated area for one week after painting with the Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash Wood Stain. This allows for the most complete curing as well as maximum coating hardness. As with any coating product, care should be taken to ensure that accidental ingestion does not occur. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14
A: Thanks for reaching out. Varathane Whitewash Wood Enhancer can be used on interior wood projects such as furniture, cabinets, doors, and trim, it will not yellow over time. For long term protection and durability, top with Varathane Water Based Polyurethane, do not use an oil based polyurethane, as these dry to an amber finish. Whitewash if for interior use only, do not use outdoors. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Satin-Water-Based-Interior-Polyurethane-200241H/100169146 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
