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

    This stain is great - loved the color! Trick is to wipe off before it dries - I left it on only 3 minutes and the color was awesome. Showed so Much wood grain detail - if you leave on too long it gets to dark and just looks solid.

    Weathered oak = gray
    Wish I would’ve read the reviews before I used the weathered oak on my brand new unfinished desk. The first coat looks really nice; second coat, the stain turned the wood almost completely gray. Not at all what I was expecting based on the photo on the can and the images associated with this color. I tried oil based polyurethane to hopefully brown up the color a bit, but no dice. Smaller piece in photo is one coat plus poly; larger piece is two coats plus poly. Super disappointed.

    Thank you for sharing your experience. Since the wood species used for the application will affect the final color of the stain, it is essential that Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain is applied in a test area first. Different color stains from this line can be mixed together to create a more custom color if needed.

      Nice stain in a small can.
      Good size can for a small job. Went on well with good coverage over a difficult surface. Only problem was it drying time. Remained sticky overnight. Color on can was more of a tan than grey but inside can color was nice.

      Wrong color & awful
      We bought the weathered oak hoping for a nice natural wood color & instead it’s dark gray. We applied it to a bed frame hoping it would lighten, we followed the directions, & it only got darker. We can’t sand it off either. It’s ugly, it’s the wrong color, I hate it, my husband hates it. I don’t know if it was a bad batch of stain but our bed is now ruined & we hate it. Definitely don’t recommend.

        This is a really nice color, a mix of light brown and red. I make cornhole sets and this has been my favorite stain so far, I just switched to it.
