    Wrong color
    Turned out to be red not brown. Used for wedding decor that was not replaceable. Wanted to cry after seeing actual color.

    That isn't good! Keep in mind that the final finish of the Rust-Oleum Varathane Class Wood Stain will depend on the wood species. For this reason, we always recommend applying it to a test area first. If you get a color you don't like, allow the stain to dry and then either sand back down to the bare wood or use a suitable stripper to start fresh. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum

      Very bad stain
      We did all as stated on the can. We followed the directions of use. Instead of light brownish as it is in the picture and as it was on the sample of the wood we tasted it came out RED color. We had do to all from the beginning and used BEHR.

      That is not what we like to hear, Bobby! If a test piece was done prior to applying to the entire staircase, the results of the test should match the results on the stairs exactly. A test patch or surface is always recommended to ensure the desired results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

          I love the color! I stained my daughter's bed for her new apartment, and it is beautiful! Now it matches the table that she had made. I is a little sticky, but I painted outside in the humidity.
