Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
PREPARATIONBlank space if empty.

Proper surface preparation is required.


  • Before starting, the surface must be dry, clean and free of dirt, grease, and glue.
  • Sand the wood in the direction of the grain using fine-grade sandpaper (#150-220 grit) until smooth.
  • Remove all sanding dust.
  • To help ensure uniform acceptance of stain colour and beautiful results, pretreat new or raw wood with BEHR® Water-Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner, following label directions.


  • Before starting, the surface must be dry, clean and free of dirt, grease, and glue.
  • Lightly sand the existing finish with 400 grit sandpaper to ensure adhesion.
  • Remove all sanding dust.
  • Stir BEHR Stain & Poly In One thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Do not thin.
  • Always test Stain & Poly on a scrap piece or hidden area of wood to verify desired colour.
APPLICATIONBlank space if empty.
  • Using a high-quality nylon/polyester bristle brush, dip approximately an inch into the can, gently tapping it against the inside to remove any excess.
  • Apply a very THIN, even coat following the direction of the grain.
  • Make sure to maintain a “wet” edge.
  • To minimize the brush marks and bubbles after staining, tip off the surface by holding the brush at a 45-degree angle and lightly run the bristles over the entire length of the wood.
  • Let the first coat dry for 1 hour or more.
  • Dry time may be extended due to high humidity, low temperatures, and inadequate ventilation or if the coat is applied too thick.
  • Lightly sand the surface between coats with fine sandpaper (#400 grit).
  • Remove all dust. Brush on a second thin coat following directions above.
  • To deepen the colour, apply a third coat.
  • NOTE: For additional protection, without adding colour, add a coat of BEHR Fast Drying Polyurethane.
  • Please refer to the back label of the container for application instructions.
