We offer 4 different finish options, please select the option you want in the drop down menu.
We use a clear non-toxic water based sealant to seal the wood giving the natural wood look. Note that with all Natural wood it will darken over time.
WHITE WASH / STAINED
There are 2 separate options available.
White Wash - is a technique where we put a translucent layer of watered down white over the wood so that you can still see the wood grain. We then seal with a clear sealant.
Stained - is a technique where we use a wood stainer to enhance the grain to end up with a deeper "dark brown" colour. We then seal with a clear sealant.
After applying a primer, we paint the furniture with 2 coats in a solid colour using sponge rollers/brushes with a water based odourless enamel paint creating a textured finish. Please select from any of our standard colours.
After applying a primer the furniture is spray painted twice to leave a smooth even satin finish. Allow an additional 2 weeks for delivery if you select this option. Please select from any of our standard colours.
