Question about wood stain

Are exterior stains suitable for internal window frames? Thanks in advance.

I use Sadolin Extra Durable and Sikkens Cetrol Filter 7, both exterior, on furniture and kitchens. You should have no problems at all.


Going on top of a solid mahogany finish. I was a bit heavy handed with the prep to begin with resulting in a few bare patches. Generally the frames and cills are in good condition through out the house, the house owner is just looking for a freshen up to go with the rest of the decorating. Perhaps bringing the bare patches up and then 1 coat of extra durable is a possible right way forward ?

Hi Andy. I would touch in any bare or light in colour areas with water based & Small artist brush and finish with your top coat
