Lets play a little game here LJs. Some of the pieces of this bedroom set were exsiting antiques. Some of them I made to match the antiques. I’m putting my rep on the line to see how well I matched the set. In a few days I’ll get back on and spill the beans if no ones got it, so check back.
The set is mahogany. It really was a trick to stain match (infact I had to totally strip and refinish part of it because of a mismatch) as I refinished the existing pieces in a different stain. Restaining over an old stain always makes sort of a hybrid color thats tough to hit sometimes. Its kind of a federal style set. It was stained then finished with tung oil.
