      Q:Is this the same color as the wellhome k-series sliding door ?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for reaching out, Joey! Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain is not color matched to other brands, and a test application is recommended if trying to match another stain. Please keep in mind, since this is not an opaque stain, the color and condition of the wood will affect the final color of the stain. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

          Very easy to apply and it's a nice dark brown. I used 2 coats and it looks great. Only one coat of you want to see grain of wood.
          Great color for butcher block

          Predictable Quality Stain
          I have used 3 quarts of the weathered gray stain for all of my cabinets, from dining room built ins, kitchen, bath vanity, to fireplace mantle. It comes out a deep gray, a little darker than i wanted, so i wait a couple of hours and cut it back with golden pecan. It leaves a warm oak look, with the open grains showing the dark tones. It does have a strong odor, so working in the shop or garage (or outdoors-weather permitting) is desred.

            Perfect simi-transparent black stain!
            I was looking for a black -ish semi-transparent stain that would be solid consistent color but allow the texture of the wood to be visible. This was the only one I could find and it coated perfectly and completely in just one coat. Works great and finishes very well.

            80 year old hardwood floors look like barnwood now
            Love Love Love the color Carrington! it made our 80 year old oak floors look like Barnwood! We just wiped it down with a brush and wiped it off with rags didn't let it sit for too long because we didn't want it that dark. On a different set of floors I left it on for about three minutes and wiped it off and they are much darker but still just as beautiful. You cannot go wrong with Carrington! We are now going to sand down all of our doors to match

              These are by far my most favorite of stains
              I have been using these for so many years and I love the quality. I have been always happy with the quality however i will say in no way does this ever dry before 6 -12 hours. Sometimes if its humid it will take way more time. No matter what it is worth the wait.

                Came out GREAT!
                Easy to apply and looks great! Just remember to wipe of the excess before it dries. Looks even better after applying epoxy glaze! I would also recommend letting any indoor furniture to dry for several days before bringing back inside.

                  Vintage Aqua is more blue than Bleached Blue
                  Over a year ago, I built a shelf and stained it with Varathane Wood Stain in color: Bleached Blue. Recently I noticed the local box stores do not carry that color. But there is a newer blue color that I noticed within the Varathane Wood Stain section: Vintage Aqua. Like I suspected, these 2 colors are different, which I like both. See this photo of a wood block with bleached blue on the left & vintage aqua on the right.
