All pieces are stained or painted and then
finished with a clear, satin, acrylic lacquer. These finishes are highly resistant to
water and alcohol based liquids, but we recommend that all
spills be wiped up immediately. Bright natural light,
reflected or direct sunlight or very low humidity can cause
changes in the pine that is used in these pieces. Knots, heavy
resin streaks, seasonal cracking are all natural
characteristics of pine products. As they age and are exposed
to light, especially sunlight, these characteristics can
become more a prominent part of the finish. This is a natural
process in pine furniture giving it an antique look.
Other ordering considerations
Our products are hand finished and the color may vary
slightly from piece to piece. We recommend all "groupings" be
ordered at the same time in order to be finished with the same
lot of paint or stain. In this situation, specify on your
order: "Finish to match and ship complete only." This will
ensure that all your pieces match but may cause delays if we
need to back order one or more items.
All finishes are standard antiqued and distressed.
Stain finishes are available, by request, without antiquing
and distressing. In this case, the letter "A" should be
omitted from the stain finish number and a written notation,
"NO DISTRESSING" made on the order.
Antiquing and distressing is offered at one standard level.
We cannot honor requests for variations on the level of
antiquing and distressing.
Hardware selection needs to be specified on all orders
before they can be processed. We can also ship with out the
hardware - please specify "no hardware" on your order.
