    Q:I have scratched dining chair legs. Can I use this only on the areas where it's needed or do I have to sand all of the legs fully?
    by|Feb 3, 2024
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  You can use a thin artist paint brush and only add this stain to the scratched areas. If the scratch is NOT absorbing the stain then multiple coats one on top of the other might be needed to cover. Then protect the area with a wax or poly coat.

      A:  Thank you for reaching out. Before applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Interior Wood Stain remove any existing finishes with sandpaper or stripper. For a consistent finish across your project we recommend applying Varathane Classic to the entire surface. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

        Q:Can I use it to make maintain my hardwood floor and make it shiny? Please let me know if you recommend another product for this purpose? Thanks!

        Answer This Question

        A:  No. This is a stain only. It is meant to go onto unfinished wood to change the color. If you just want to make your floors more shiny, then lightly sand, clean, and apply a poly top coat. Make sure the poly you use is made for floors and not furniture.

          A:  Thank you for reaching out. Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain provides a rich natural color for wooden floors. It provides minimal shine or sheen, for added sheen we recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Floor Finish. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-gal-Clear-Gloss-Water-Based-Floor-Polyurethane-2-Pack-230031/202057139 -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.
