Very Durable!
I used varathane to finish my wood flooring and it came out amazing. We hired "professionals" years ago and they did a horrible job, left many streaks. So i took it upon myself to get on my hands n knees and hand sand the bad spots on the flooring and went over the rest very lightly. Vacuum debris then wash floor with vinegar. Next day i started to finish the floors with a regular paint brush, laying on the floor, on my stomach. I did 3 coats of high gloss, let each coat dry for 1 full day. It took a total of 5 days to complate from start to finish and they came out beautiful! 4 years later and my floors are still like new!

The Golden Pecan Classic gives the wonderful hues of pecan wood. I really appreciate it's tones on maple or even pine. Easy to work with. No special "tricks" for this stain.

This stain is a great color but when I bought it, I read on the label to see if it is outdoor stain or indoor stain but nowhere on the container did it say interior or outdoor stain. Now that I am doing a review the title says "interior". I used it outdoors on my bird feeder post. Hope it holds up! I love the color and did not see any outdoor or indoor labels. I don't usually by Varathane brand, and I guess I won't be buying it again.

Bath redo
If you're looking for a weathered or farmhouse look on pine board, this is a good stain to use. I put it on blue pine in a bath remodel and it came out great.

Golden oak is Darker than expected, gave a “dirty” look to the ash/pine wood I was using. Summer oak gave nice warm yellow tones.

Response from Rust-OleumSupportMar 23, 2022
Let's see what we can figure out. Prior to applying Varathane Classic Wood Stains, be sure to test in an inconspicuous area to verify the desired color. Pine is a soft wood, it will absorb more stain and may have an uneven appearance. With soft woods, using Varathane Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner will minimize blotchiness and ensure a consistent, even stain application.
