Rated 1 out of 5 by Nick B. from Not a fan of Polyshades I custom built a twin over queen bunk bed set. Customer wanted it stained Satin slate. I've done a lot of staining in my years as a woodworker, this has been the most difficult stain job I've ever done. Either there is not enough pigment or far too much and chasing drips has been a miserable experience. I have now had to sand and re-stain. I will never use Polyshades again. Next time I will stain for an even finish and then polyurethane it. Trying to do both simultaneously has been nothing but aggravating.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bobboer from Bad off-gassing of fumes three weeks later Used this on a fireplace mantel. The off-gassing of fumes has been three weeks! Looks beautiful but have to run our furnace fan constantly or we can't sit in the room. Makes us lightheaded.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Leeney from Not at all what I expected I bought because it sounds like an easy product to use. It wasn’t. No matter how quickly I worked, brush strokes show dark overlaps when stopping and starting. It looked awful. It may work better on small pieces. I was using to refinish a 6’ 6” L desktop. I ended up using 4 coats to make it look like a solid color just to hide all the problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Janny from Didn't adhere well I prepped the surface by sanding with 220 and cleaning with microfiber cloths. I applied the first coat with a staining pad and then sanded with fine steel wool removed any debris with microfiber cloth. I then applied a second coat.I was happy with the color and look, but after a couple weeks it's pealing off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Squatch craft from Terrible off gassing Bought this product in order to save a step using poly and stain together on a custom hutch top. Turns out it is extremely light color and takes at least 2 to 3 coats to get color over bare wood. Followed the directions and allowed proper amount of time to dry and sanded between coats. The finish did dry smooth and seems to be a hard finish. The biggest issue I have is the terrible off gassing. It's been two months and the fumes coming from this finish is still as string as first applied. My entire shop and everything in it smells like this finish no matter how much air flow I put into it even two months later. I do not recommend this product for any type of indoor use unless you are prepared for fumes for several months. It's understood that oil based finishing take longer to cure, even up to 30 days but this is extreme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YelliowCB73 from So far so ...GREAT Just thought I'd try for small bathroom project. My home is only 4 years old but I was already growing tired of what my cabinets look like. I definitely wanted to start with a smaller projects so I did our bathroom and after the 1st coat I can already tell it's going to be a beautiful finish. The technique to keep wet edges and not get to much or too little, takes some getting used to. Make sure you prep exactly as it says and so start with a small project.

Rated 2 out of 5 by dcps650 from Type of wood and previous finish matter A LOT I bought the satin espresso to update a barn door and sofa table in our main living area. The sofa table was a pre finished oak with a light stain and followed the instructions and it came out beautifully. The barn door on the other hand has been a nightmare. Stripped all of the paint off and used pre-stain wood treatment as suggested and still turned out super blotchy. Some places look blood others flat and some satin. Used a quality brush the first time then sanded as recommended and used a staining pad because of the way the first application turned out. Neither did the job and probably going to end up just finding a paint for the door instead. Maybe it was the pine but it looks horrible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tbone from Bare wood and finished wood both dry uneven The stain is uneven when dries. A light even coat is applied but when it dries it’s flat and blotchy. The bare wood turned out good but it took a few times of sanding and reapplying. The biggest trouble we’re having is the post we picked up from the lumber store. They where pre finished so we roughed them up and put a coat on. The stain is acting completely different on the post then it did on the stair caps(bare wood). The stain is like water and dries really fast and uneven. We tried to buff the unevenness out with steel wool but the finish is gone once we get it evened out. Any help would b appreciated, the project is st a stand still.
