Incorrect Color
Hey folks, I am so disappointed and blaming myself how come the color of Weathered Oak Classic Wood Interior Stain does not match with the picture as represented on the can label. I purchased this product and surprised very much with the result. I feel so stupid with this work bc the color is ash-gray color but NOT as represented. Can someone tell me so I can correct myself and my own thoughts on these types of mister please? Or is this a wrong labeled item? Could Homedepot even solve the issue?

    It’s a good stain. Used on a coffee table, end table, and TV stand made out of birch butcher block. Make sure you use some pre-stain conditioner on any softer wood so your finish doesn’t turn out blotchy. I used 3 coats applied with a rag. The photo included is slightly lighter looking in the photo than in real life, but close enough to give you an idea of what it looks like after 3 coats.

          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.

                I have always used this stain. My house is filled with woodwork. I have decided to remove the carpet from my stairs . I am sanding and staining them with this beautiful color. It has truly added some elegance to our home.

                Excellent color match for the door I needed. This was the best stain I have ever used. It is very watery but covers like a champ. Just a little bit is required. If you have a small project (like a door) I recommend buying the smaller can. This covers a lot.

                I used two coats and I achieved the color I was hoping to get. I used Dark Walnut over red oak hardwood. Then I gave it two coats of Varathane oil based polyurethane in the satin sheen. I will be redoing all my floors in this color.

                Step upgrade
                I was very pleased with the outcome of the Early American Varathane Stain. I was in the process of installing a new set of oak steps to my basement and did not want something dark going down the steps, but not something really light that it would show every spot of dirt. I ended up only needing 2 coats of stain, but applied 3 coats of polyutherane so it would hold up to my kids running up and down them constantly. I think they turned out great, i even ended up staining my hand railing to match.

                  A couple of weeks ago I bought the small can of this product for a bench I made to sell. The color of this stain was so popular that I decided to get a quart and make more benches with this English Chestnut stain.

                    The shade of color this stain was perfect for what I was looking for. Sometimes it’s tricky trying to find that perfect stain. This one is right in between the dark color and a light color. I started burning wood to have the grain show more and this stain helped me get that look I was looking for.
