Lovely Old Oak Brings Homely Joy

Lovely Old Oak Brings Homely Joy

What do we mean when we think about the way our home is going to look.  what do we want in the way of funishings.  The older oak will take pride of place in the middle of the room, or be sat to one side out of the way? If it will be the focal point, you might want to look for an elegant and sophisticaed design.

How much care do you want to put in? Oak is hardy and resiliant so the table should last even in a packed out house! You will need to spend a little time weekly to wax and polish the table though.  Worth investing in some coasters too to protect the surface from drinks and spills!  Ther can never be a better time to get that old antique look organised for a home.  so much choice and so many ways to source.
