By painting them and treating them all to the same finish it brought a cohesive look to all pieces.
Here are the pictures.
|Here is the Oak table with the 6 chairs|
|Here is the buffet definitely not Oak and much older|
|Here is the Hutch again not Oak and a much older piece.|
I should mention that she had a piece of furniture in the next room that she really liked the look of, so we were trying to coordinate with it.

I have to say it has been my most challenging project to date. We painted the pieces off white, then glazed with a medium tan, then put a clear coat over that.We then glazed them all with a custom mixed grey. Over all that I put a clear coat of wax, the horizontal surfaces got two coats of acrylic poly.
The client was very pleased. She said that the furniture has now been brought into the 21st century and she will be proud to use it for many more years.
