Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Difficult to Apply I do not enjoy painting and staining in general, but also am very particular about the quality of the finish, so I sometimes do projects myself to ensure quality outcomes. I chose this product because I found that the new sliding doors I thought only needed varnish to match the room actually required stain. Since I now had a coat of Minwax polyurethane one the wood, I searched for a stain that I could apply over the existing varnish. Enter PolyShades. I wish I had read the reviews first. This product is HORRIBLE to apply, especially on vertical surfaces like a door. It starts out very watery, which runs badly, and then it quickly turns gummy as you try to fix runs, leaving splotchy areas that are darker - once this process starts, you can't recover. Critical mistake on my part was to go back to an area and try to even out the color. I will now have to sand the wood back down, and start over. I want to cut my loses and switch to a regular stain, but now have to worry about color matching the trim that I have to redo with the door frame that actually turned out ok.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I gave up and just spray painted over it. The stuff could work better as a spray application maybe. But trying to make this stuff work takes MUCH more time and effort than just regular staining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I have used this product several times with different kinds of furniture. It can be a little tricky to use as some others have said. The solution lies in the type of wood used. If new wood you have to use the conditioner and always pretest on the bottom to make sure you like the color. Also my trick is that I never use a brush - I always use a smooth foam roller to get a nice even coat. Works every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff! I have pine plank flooring in a bedroom and used 3 coats of the Classic Oak PolyShades. The warm, glossy finish is beautiful. Just a can and a bag of cheap foam brushes is all it took! I waited a day or two between coats. Easy, perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't follow the directions on the can! The first time I used this stain, my espresso shelf looked like it had been painted black - by a two year old. Uneven and much too dark! My husband took one look at it and told me I did it wrong. I told him I followed the directions carefully. He told me to try with a rag on the next shelf and it was a totally different result! So if you want it to look good, saturate a clean rag in the stain and rub it in the wood in circular motions, not leaving anything to "pool" behind your strokes. Before the piece gets too tacky, take a clean rag and wipe in the direction of the grain. You might need to put some elbow grease into it! Make sure no stain dries on the surface. I usually go back after it's cured and sand with fine sandpaper and repeat the process. Gives a more rich color and sheen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good but don't paint it on. I use a rag and rug it in to the wood. Rub it in really good and don't let excess sit on the wood and dry. I only use 1 coat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't recommend Very difficult to use. This product begins to dry and streak after two brush strokes.
