Q:Can this be used on laminate kitchen cabinets?
by|Feb 13, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for reaching out. Rust-Oleum Varathane Fast Dry Wood Stain must be applied to bare wood in order for it to penetrate and dry properly. It will not do either on laminate surfaces. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

    Q:Can you use a water based varathane polyurethane over your oil based blue stain for stairs
    by|Feb 8, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Let's see if we can clear things up. While a Water-Based protective top coat can be applied to Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Premium Wood Stain, we do not recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane. The foot traffic will cause the finish to crack and peel. Instead, we recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Floor Finish as it is specifically formulated for high traffic surfaces. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-gal-Clear-Satin-Water-Based-Floor-Polyurethane-2-Pack-230231/202057141 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

          First time I have used this color. I made a picture frame and was trying to match a piece of furniture color. It matched perfect. Made my wife so happy. My life is happy.

          I haven't had a chance to do my sample boards for the Garden & Accessory cabinets I am doing for a garage project, but I did a test on a large terracotta plant vase, which is almost 2'ft tall and 30"inch wide..... 1 coat of the stain and 2 coats of acrylic sealant. The vase came out stunning!!!! Goes incredibly well with the red, white, blue theme vases....and looks great. I will do some sample boards this weekend, but I will say this Varathane's Barn Red is fantastic. Looks great and I can't wait to do the other samples.

          The color is fantastic. It looks like a deep cherry on barn wood.

          colonial maple premium new formula ia fantastic
          Did tounge and groove ceiling under our new deck and decided to go with white pine. Tested 15 stains and colonial maple premium came on top, I had an old bottle from long time ago and ordered new and it had improved the color and also did not need to use wood conditioner and came out perfect no blotchy spots, I stained and coated bothsides with Helmsman Oil Based Spar Urethane in Satin finish and it came out gorgeous!

            Great stain and color
            This stain color was the closest color we could get to match the rest of our mid century furniture. We are so pleased.

            Weathered Gray looks cheap and painted on
            On freshly-cut pine the weathered gray went on very inconsistently and looked more or less painted on. Nobody in my family liked it. I did end up going with Behr’s bold coffee custom tint, which looks awesome and goes on like a proper stain.

            Response from Rust-OleumSupportJun 23, 2023
            Let's talk about this, Miles! Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain must be applied to bare, sanded wood. Sanding the wood helps ensure the stain can properly penetrate. When staining a softwood, like pine, we do recommend using Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Conditioner to help prevent a blotchy appearance.

              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
