    Q:Can I use this product on unfinished pine shiplap in a bathroom with a shower?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Happy to help, Tina! While Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane can be used on bare wood surfaces in the bathroom, we do not recommend it for use in a shower stall. These areas tend to have higher exposure to water and humidity, which can cause blistering and peeling. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Q:Can I use this product on children's play area table?
      by|Apr 1, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Great question, Chris! Yes, Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane can be applied to interior children's furniture. Our recommendation is to leave items in a well ventilated area for one week after painting. 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 3

        Very smooth
        I used the Matte poly on a new, bare, pine table top. Stained with Varathane carbon grey. I used 9 coats. Very little sanding with 2000 grit between the first 3 coats and then no sanding with the other 6. I final buff at completion. I let it cure for 6 weeks. It’s so smooth it looks like Formica. It dries fast! Easy to apply with a foam brush.

            delivery problem
            I can’t speak to the quality of the product, but the packing was apparently insufficient since the box arrived leaking on my porch.

              Spray with Caution
              I tried to spray this product with an airless sprayer, but it was way too heavy and wasted a lot of product. I switched to an HVLP gravity feed sprayer. You do need to spray closer to the wood than with other paints. Turned out better after switching to that method.

                Amazing finish
                I refinished a desk from the 1950’s. This was the finishing touch. I had never used it before and 2 coats was enough. Super easy to use and finish looks amazing

                  great product
                  This is my go-to varnish for my furniture painting business. Only complaint is that my closest store no longer carries it (because they're switching to another brand ONLY) and I have to travel a distance to get it or have it delivered.

                    We used this as a finish coat for painting our half bath floor tiles. A top coat wasn’t suggested to us, but once we finished painting, it was obvious we needed it. A quick google search suggested a water based polyurethane top coat. This was perfect. It was pretty easy to use. I would suggest however, if you need to “touch up” a spot, that you just do an entire extra layer. We have one square of tile w an extra coat and you can see it from certain light angles It dried quickly, it’s holding up great and it’s really what we needed to complete the project . It feels sturdy, like it will last a long time. The Matte is perfect

                    Quick and easy, nice looking and durable finish
                    Used for dining room table. Tried spray oil based first which was bad; sputtered a lot. Sanded off worst of sputter blobs and then used this water based stain with a brush. It was easy to apply & dried fast. Put on about 7 coats; have been using the table w/ no apparent scratches or wear so far. Some coats I didn't apply uniformly and you could see different sheens, but was easily fixed by just applying another coat. So really you only need to get the last coat right.
