      Q:Is this a food grade stain

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for reaching out, Fabrice. While once Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain has fully cured it will no longer off gas any harmful fumes, it is not considered to be a food grade finish. Instead, we would recommend using our Rust-Oleum Watco Butcher Block Oil as it is our only food safe finish for wooden surfaces. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Watco-1-Pint-Butcher-Block-Oil-in-Hazelnut-359024/314884207 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

        Answer This Question

        A:  We're happy to help, Lance. We do not recommend applying our Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain outdoors because the UV exposure and wear from the elements will cause the stain to haze and fade. However, if this stain is top coated using our Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Spar Urethane it can be applied to outdoor surfaces. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Satin-Water-Based-Outdoor-Spar-Urethane-250241H/100165652 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

            Totally different color
            I saw in some of the reviews of weathered oak that it was actually grey. But I wasn't sure if it was just user error or what so ordered it anyway. When I opened it and stirred it up, sure enough, it is a dark grey color. I tested it out on a few different pieces of wood just in case and they all came back grey. Will need to try a different stain for my project.

              disappointed in the color match
              In 2008 I decided on Varathane oil stain in Gunstock for all the trim, doorways and doors of our home. I did several sets of doors including eight bi-fold doors in this stain. Later (this month) we decided to remodel the family room and I purchased a new can of Gunstock stain as I needed to re-configure some areas. While this stain looks good and applies well it is nowhere near the same color of the original Gunstock stain we used. I called the Rust-oleum help desk and they were no help without the original can we used. The old stain was brown-ish with hints of yellow and the new stain is what I would call Redwood.

                Our first time staining, went well!
                It’s a little expensive for such a little can. It was our first time staining anything though and it did extremely well! Super smelly, though. Major headache from the fumes.

                  Confused on the color
                  I purchased 2 cans to compare colors on my wood nightstand. I bought Special Walnut and Early American. Special Walnut is supposed to be darker and less red than Early American but it wasn't. I feel like the cans were mislabeled or the color is off.

                  Thank you for reaching out and sharing your experinece, Emmily. The final color of Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stains will be dependent on the type of wood, the cut of it, and the condition it is in. It is also essential that all excess stain is wiped away from the surface shortly after application.
