Works perfect
I bought this to paint my bar stools legs because I don’t like the light brown color they had and this stain did the job perfectly. Highly recommended

This is a very good dark stain to use for woodworking projects where you can still see the stain

We were very happy with this product. It was easy to apply and the diy pallet headboard that we made looked great! The stain really enhanced the natural wood grains and was the perfect color that we were looking for.

very pretty!
I used this on sanded wood floors. I used a throw away brush to put on, let sit a couple minutes then wiped off excess with a soft rag. The sanded floors really soaked it up so I figured out to not wipe too much off. The picture is one coat and no finish coat yet.

The stain was easy to apply, provided the expected results to the top of the dresser and night stands. I then sealed it with varathane triple thick polyurethane and it again looked great. I would recommend the varathane stain and polyurethane for refinishing furniture.

We appreciate your feedback, Ryan! With any application, it is essential that Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain is applied to a test area first. This is because the wood species used for the application will affect the final color of the stain.

Color was a LIE
This was not Gray. I had the wood properly sanded and conditioner applied even though the product says there isnt any need for it. Was a weathered burnt color. Now ill be spending my time stripping this mistake
