Q:Should we use brush to stain the wooden stairs or should we use clothes to wipe
by|Mar 29, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  We're happy to help. We recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Fast Dry Wood Stain using a brush or lint free rag, however, this stain can not be applied to floors or stairs without a floor finish. The wood stain will need to be top coated using Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Floor Finish. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

    Q:I would like to use this in a butchers block vanity top in the bathroom. Should I apply poly on top? Any other advice?

    A:  Happy to help, Ryan! For added protection and durability, we do recommend applying a polyurethane over Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain. Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane is a great option for interior surfaces. Please keep in mind, this is not a waterproofing finish and at this time, we do not offer a waterproof finish for interior wood surfaces. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Satin-Water-Based-Interior-Polyurethane-200241H/100169146 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Q:putting varathene redwood on a front pine porch covered peel

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for reaching out, Mary. When using Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain on exterior surfaces, it must be topcoated with a suitable spar or exterior-grade polyurethane. This stain must also be applied to bare wood. We also do not recommend this product for use on decks or on porches, as we do not offer a suitable topcoat for this type of use and foot-traffic. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

          The color is great. I had to thin it to let more wood grain show through. I have soooo much product left over. I wish it was sold in tiny cans.

          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.

            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
