Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awful Ruined my Project I prefer to do two steps (stain then urethane), but this was the only 'brown hue' product I found from Minwax that doesn't turn select pine orange. The product is pretty thin. Because the urethane also contains the color, any runs will immediately ruin your project, as there's no way to sand the darker color of the run out. Because the urethane sets up so quickly, you can't brush out runs that you see within a few minutes, as that just messes up the finish (and bunches up the color. Even in the places where there were no runs, the coloring wasn't as good as doing two steps. It would just be nice if Minwax showed an accurate color scheme on all types of wood, not just oak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient and lasts I'm a huge fan of the polyshades line. I'm sad to see it get such bad reviews. So I'm going to give a few tips that I think might help others. You can clean your brushes with paint thinner or mineral spirits, but with any oil based product it's a pain and not worth the clean up time in my opinion. I've had great success with even the cheapest brushes on the market. You can stir it or shake it very well - just like paint. I prefer to shake it well. If it's not mixed well you're not going to get an even stain poly mix. So if the color doesn't look right when you start or you can see there's separation between the two, mix again. Keep a wet edge and keep it moving for an even coat, I was easily able to apply it to several feet of wood before it ever becomes tacky. Just like with paint, it's better to do a few thin coats vs a thick one to avoid runs or drips. Wait for each coat to dry, don't ruin your first coat by putting on a second coat too soon. Since the product is thin like water, don't completely saturate your brush, just the tip and wipe the backside against the can so there isn't excess product to drip. Keep the can close to where you are working. I love this product, it has given new life to dressers, a bed, tables, an old desk, windowsills and trim in my home. My favorite shade is American Chestnut, it shows more red undertones in natural sunlight, otherwise it looks like a rich med-dark brown. It's a great match to many of my antique pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a nice coat. I'm surprised at the poor reviews on this product. I've used Polyshade more than a dozen times always with success. From the photos of these poor reviews I gather lack of preparation for the poor results more than any issues with the product. Also, you have to ensure a dust free environment! But that is also the case of the staining then putting on polyurethane. Maybe those using it are handy at DIY projects and are blaming the product. The only criticism I have is the small selection of shades and I can't find it in gallon cans.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Idea But Don't Recommend It I bought this to refinish a dining room table (pecan) and I stripped the damaged finish and sanded down to bare wood. I have tried 2 thin coats of the Polyshades product but the results are unsatisfying as it is impossible to be consistent with the amount/thickness applied and the result is lighter and darker shadows. I did wet sand between coats with wet 600 waterproof sandpaper and again after the second coat but still the result is blotchy. I am now going to have to sand back down to bare and use a traditional stain and clear urethane finish. I would only suggest this product for small areas or touch ups and not where you want a dramatically beautiful finish as on my dining table top or furniture tops. I hate wasting my time and effort by having to do a job all over again so take my advice and go the stain, then finish route!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sub-Par I bought this to try and tint a polyurethane finish. After the first application it was so streaky and just a mess to apply. Figured it just needed more coats. After 3 coats it looks horrible! I don't know why this product even exists. You can easily tint a poly finish using a gel stain, which I totally admit I should have done that to begin with. Guess curiosity killed the cat in this case! Otherwise Minwax makes a great finish and I do really like most of their oils stains. Just not the Polyshade and is suggest the company make more gel stain colors instead.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Espresso stain is orange not dark I stained my table with the Espresso color. It is very orange and no where close to dark. I am very dissatisfied with the color as I was obviously trying darken my table not make it old fashioned orange. I have only done one coat and am afraid to do another since it will just turn more orange.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Proceed With Great Caution I do accent walls for a living and tried PolyShades without fully understanding the difficulty of this product. It does NOT apply easily--especially to larger surface areas like wainscotting with some intricate trim. For a small table or something very flat, I can see where it would work but not where you have wood pieces with grains flowing in different directions. You'd have to be a real pro to get a good look out with this product. Honestly, Minwax should send this one back to R & D and come up with a better formula. No bueno.
