My friend who's getting married in June is furniture hunting and she found a dining set on Craigslist and wanted my advice on whether she should purchase it or not.
But I love the bones of the table (I'm not a fan of the chairs...).
She asked if she could stain the wood, which of course is totally doable and I would only advise her to buy it if she was going to stain it in a medium to dark tone.
However, if she were to go darker on the table top, I think she needs to everything that is currently black. I suggested a white or a cream.
Recently I received a comment from a fellow Canuck, Urbane Jane who posted a table that she refinished. Check out her process here.
So what about you guys?
Are you for two toned furniture?
