Q:what is the recommended grit to sand up to?
by|Dec 6, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Happy to help, Lucas. When prepping bare wood before applying Varathane Classic Wood Stain, begin with #120 grit sandpaper and progress though #150, #180 and #220 grits. Always be sure to test your stain to verify the desired color. To test, apply the stain in an inconspicuous area. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

    Q:Am I able to apply this product over a different color wood that was stained already ? Will it show wood grain still ?
    by|Dec 3, 2022
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Happy to help, John! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain will work best on bare, sanded wood. If the surface is already stained, the new stain may not be able to fully penetrate and provide the best color. We recommend applying in a test area first to ensure favorable results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

          I have wooden doors that were sanded down and used this product on. Golden Oak??? It is more like dark brown. I am so disappointed. Thought it might dry lighter....nope. Now if I want doors lighter, I will have to sand down (or hire someone again) and do again. So much work & such expense.

          Thank you for sharing your experience using our Varathane Classic Wood Stain. Keep in mind that there are several factors that can impact the color of wood stain, such as the species of wood, and how long the stain is allowed to penetrate the wood prior to wiping the excess stain. The longer the stain is allowed to remain on the wood prior to wiping, the darker the color will become. We recommend testing the stain on a scrap piece of wood, or a test spot prior to applying to ensure the desired color is achieved.

          Perfect clear colorless stain
          Excellent coverage and true clear colorless tones. I used as a pre stain before applying dark walnut on pine slabs to help lighten contrasts across softwood grain. It wipes or brushes on and has a barely wet sheen. Have to pay attention to avoid missing spots. Dries quickly and ready for overstaining in 2 hours.

          I’m beyond obsessed with this stain. I went back and forth with 2 others before settling on this one. It really brought out the beauty of the wood on this table I made!

          The color is more gray than we thought but it looked great on this old red oak floor. It looks lighter than the photo shows.

          Great product!
          If you're looking for a sleek look, this is the color for you. It only takes 1 coat & you only need to shake or stir before using.

          Don’t buy hazelwood,
          Looks nothing like the photo on the can. I’ve used other shades that applied perfectly, but this applied so poorly. I sanded my wood piece extremely well beforehand, but it looks as if I didn’t at all. The color like murky light gray water. I also stirred my can in a circular motion as directed for a very long time; so it’s not like directions weren’t followed. This ruined my piece of plywood, and wasted my time and money too.

          Something is amiss here, Natalie. Keep in mind that the final finish of the Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain can differ depending on the wood species. For that reason, we always recommend applying the stain to a small test area first to ensure it's the color you're looking for. We need to know more about your experience to get to the bottom of this. Please call us at 800-901-0411 to discuss further. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum

            deep rich color, slightly gummy in texture, adhered well. Final effect looks like redwood (on douglas fir 2x10)
