Reviews

BEHR ® Fast-Drying Water-Based Wood Stain No. B4508 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 267.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I bought this to use on a brand-new outdoor potting table and it worked great! I lightly sanded any rough edges and lightly wiped the table down with a slightly damp cloth. I allowed this to dry overnight, then applied the product outdoors with a paint brush. It goes on clear with a slightly milky look to it. I applied 2 light coats to the entire potting table and it all dried with a clear, matte finish to it. I was able to complete the project in one day. If you didn't know I had applied it to the wood, you wouldn't know the wood had been treated with anything. Very pleased with how it turned out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fence Staining I used the Cedar color. It went on easy with a brush and didn't show overlapping strokes when done. This fence was never treated in the last 25 years since it was installed. After cleaning the Pacific NW green tint of algae off of the cedar fence and letting it dry, this product made my fence look like new again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish Bought this product to use on kitchen cabinets, especially where boiling liquids above the stove dampen the cabinets. After cooking on the stove top, I just wipe off the cabinets with a clean towel. The finish holds up wonderfully and still look beautiful with no peeling or damage to the wood!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations I stained a 60 foot wooden fence (Pine). I originally attempted to use a pump sprayer but it was too messy so I used a 3 inch brush. I applied 2 coats and it looks better than I expected. The second coat went on much faster than the first coat because the fence was new wood. I estimate it took 16 - 17 hours to apply both coats. The finished product was well worth the labor that went into completing the project.
