Wood Grain Finishes
Wax – The traditional way of finishing pine furniture, the wax finish adds a subtle colour to the soft pine. With this change you get a gentle enhancement of the natural grain of the furniture. Gentle care is needed with this finish and an occasional top up of wax. For more on looking after your furniture see our ‘Aftercare of Your Furniture’ page.
Abbeywax - Enhance the look of your pine furniture with the Abbeywax finish. Designed to give your furniture a deep lustre and augment the grain this finish makes any piece stand out while keeping the classic feel of pine furniture. The Abbeywax finish is similar to the Wax but gives the grain a deeper colouring the same aftercare is required.
Lacquer - A simple finish to your pine furniture. The Lacquer finish keeps the colour and grain of the wood while adding a hard wearing and resilient protective layer. The Lacquer finish is easy to wipe down and remove any spillages making it ideal for a house full of young children.
Premium Furniture Finishes
Chestnut - Combine the look of the Abbeywax finish with the hard wear and resilience of the Lacquer. The Chestnut finish gives you this solid combination of deep colouring and tough finish.
Milkwood Contrast - A bold contrast finish where the body of the piece is finished in white and the handles and top of the piece in Laquer. Get your furniture to have a stand out distinction with the Milkwood finish. Please note not all our furniture can be done in this finish due to the construction of each piece.
Milkwood All Over - An alternative to the contrast finish of Milkwood is to have the entire piece completed in the Milwood paint. This gives a modern stylish finish to your pine furniture.
Antique Ivory - A subtle ivory coloured finish with deliberate distressing to strategic edges to give the impression of age. The Antique Ivory finish is a solid painted covering with subtle rubbing back to reveal the undercoat on the edges and handles of the piece.
Antique White - A similar finish in style and look to the Antique Ivory but in a bright white paint rather than the subtle ivory colour.
Snow White - Our ultra modern white painted finish. A complete painted covering in a bright white paint to give the up to date white painted furniture look.
