We spray a lot of oak kitchen/dining room tables and chairs. They look amazing! Expensive solid wood tables do not deserve to go into the landfill! Some people love to keep the whole set and re-purpose while others bring us the table only. Then they purchase the very popular leather or suede parsons chairs to go with it. Others bring us the chairs and use them with a new harvest table at the cottage. Either way, it is a new and easy way to bring life to our everyday furniture. If a table has beautiful lines and legs then consider some light distressing. It gives the pieces a time worn patina. Even a very modern kitchen will be more interesting with a distressed black harvest table. Run a beautiful linen table runner down the centre and add a great big vase filled with flowers or big green leaves and wow! Mixing it up is what gives interest to a room. It is also a great way to display beautiful vases that otherwise end up stored all year round in your top kitchen cupboards!
I have listed below some websites for you to check out. While some of these places are great for furnishings, some are great for accessories. On our website is a picture of a beautiful china cabinet. We placed silver, glass and some pine cones for display in our Fall/Winter showroom 2009/2010. Not one piece of silver cost more than $5!!! We have customers that purchase from these places all of the time and get them delivered to us directly to spray!
