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.

          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.

            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.
