Hi, it’s me again...”I’m living in an antique store....”.

3 years ago

We just took the wallpaper off our breakfast area, and I have a new appreciation for my little area. Our old oak table is quarter sawn or tiger oak that has a pronounced pattern that my husband loves, me, not so much. Should I try to darken the wood to go with the pie safe and the sideboard and mirror....and our wonderful old wine press. Or is it fine as is? I know oak is not in favor anymore, nor are antiques, but we are living with them til we die. So shall I try a darker stain?
