Stains & Varnishes

Don Smith Paint specializes in custom stain matching for all your projects. Bring us a sample of the stain you need and a blank piece of the actual wood it will be used on, and we will custom match a wood stain for you. Along with your stain, we also can recommend the proper clear topcoat for the project. We stock clear polyurethanes, lacquers and tung oil finishes for all needs and purposes. For custom matching services we do ask that you leave your sample with us so we can match, dry and clear-coat it on your actual wood. This helps us ensure you get the best possible match.

General Finishes Stains

General Finishes Water Based Wood Stains are formulated to provide workability similar to oil-based stains. They spread easily, can be repaired, blend effortlessly and have plenty of open time. The thicker formula of these wood stains allows for controlled penetration, and their high-quality pigments produce rich, dark, uniform colors on hard-to-stain woods like maple and pine. Low odor, low VOC, water cleanup and noncombustible.
