    Q:what color is closest to chestnut?

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for reaching out! Our Varathane Early American Wood Putty is fairly close to the color of our Varathane Chestnut Wood Stain. Alternately, our Varathane Classic Wood Filler may be used prior to staining, since this is a stainable filler. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-12-oz-Wood-Filler-340228/305626726

            Unbelievably Bad
            I needed to fix a crack in my door frame so I picked this up and BOY DO I REGRET THAT! It’s so hard to work with, it just peels and pills all over the place, you absolutely can not use a putty knife, it won’t adhere to painted wood, it falls right off onto the floor. If you try to press it into place it picks up your finger print, but if you try to wet your finger and run it through like with chalk then it peels off. You’d be better off making a repair with spit and cottage balls.

                Definitely not white
                If your trim (or other wood item) is a true white, this filler isn't white. I stopped after 2 nail holes because instead of tiny holes (that you can tell are installation because they're all perfectly aligned), it looks like dirty holes. I like that it didn't dry as fast as the other fillers, but that's it. That said, I've had antique white trim and bright white filler stands out there too. Keep in mind though that this isn't antique white or ivory. It's a gray white.

                Thank you for your feedback! Since the stain or paint used on the surface can vary from manufacture or wood species used, we recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Putty in a test area first to ensure the desired color.

Use as the final process in finishing wood projects, such as moulding installations,and window and door installations. This is an interior product.

                  This is a non-hardening putty, so you're not really supposed to sand this once applied. It's for filling small holes, like nail holes. I applied some to a small nick in a cheap cube storage bookshelf my wife bought years ago. After several moves, it had a small chip that came out of the side. Nothing major, but why not fix it if it's in our living room area? All I wanted was just enough coverage to not show the small cut and that was it. This worked as I planned. It was easy to apply and easy to work with. I'd compare the consistency to play dough. Looking at the cube storage from anything more than a couple feet away, and you can't tell that this product was applied at all, which is exactly what I wanted.

                  We had a hole in our dining room floor that I wanted to patch, and I decided to try some of this Varathane wood putty. I'm very satisfied with the results! It’s a super easy low mess wood putty that resembles the consistency of crafting clay before it is applied. PROS *Easy to use *Low mess *Inexpensive *Great container *Doesn't crack or shrink *Good instructions CONS *It does have a smell, but it isn't super strong and it dissipates pretty fast 5 out of 5 stars I recommend this product!

                  got one jar of this stuff and it goes a long way, i like the natural filler so stain will match with it blend better with the wood. the material is soft and pliable easy to use without need really for a putty knife. if tried it on several species of wood and it does blend well and except stain well. if it does not harden it should look good and last over time

                  I have a kitchen table that has been in my family for 33 years. Solid wood table, but it has some wear and tear on the table top. I wanted to patch up some small holes and got this putty in hopes that it would fix the table. I got two different colors so I could blend them. Followed the directions and mixed the two colors to match the varying colors on the table. The directions say it can't be sanded.

                  Color matching your hardwood floor is always a challenge. Glad I can get this in small sizes. I have used another brand basic wood putty that I was not happy with so I never finished filling in the holes. It flaked off from the floor and it just looked...well...awful. I tested this putty distributed by the "Rust-Oleum" company and I am very satisfied. The color didn't quite match but the quality of the putty is super. No flakes noticed and the putty blended smoothly. It was easy to apply and rub into the holes and gaps. The excess was easily cleaned up with my fingers. The putty despite not matching did "blend" into the floor gaps very nicely. No water needed to clean up, you can use a dry rag or your fingers or putty knife to wipe up the excess. I am finding that matching my unique hardwood stain quite a challenge. no one seems to make my stain :( So I mixed this putty with a cherry putty to try and get a closer color match and well that idea worked out with mixed results. The putty didn't really blend together well as I would have hoped but I did manage to achieve a closer color match of my hard wood floor but I would say it is easier to just get the closest pre-mixed color putty and use that color for filling in holes/gaps.
