Selecting the right wood finish for your space can feel daunting. You want to get it right. You probably already have floor colors, wall colors, cabinet colors to contend with.

Luckily, we build thousands of tables each year and here’s what you need to know to be certain you’re selecting the correct finish color:

Tip 1: Get Inspired

We have hundreds of pictures from past customers in our gallery. The images can even be filtered by finish color using the drop down at the top.

 

Tip 2:  Order A Sample

If you’re going back and forth between finish options, we reccomend ordering a finish sample or two. You can also return them for a refund less postage.

We also offer what we call a “vintage” finish for each of the 5 finish colors mentioned above, which gives the finish piece a more worn and rustic look and allows the lighter elements of the raw wood to surface in the distressed areas. You can learn more about our vintage options here.
