Hi friends! Long time no see!
I just wanted to jump on here and let you all know a little more about the new dining chairs. I found them on multiple sites such as Amazon, Wayfair, and at Target. Now Target was the most expensive by far, and at Amazon and Wayfair, the prices were the same. Now what I did do, is buy my first one at Target to see if I loved it because I was worried about shipping it back if I wasn’t head over heels. Well, the chair is made by Safavieh, and is called the wood arm chair in light oak teak wood. What I wanted to share with you all is that it comes unfinished. Now unfinished wood sure is beautiful, but it needs to be protected so food and dirty fingers don’t ruin it!
This is the chair how it arrived, unfinished.
And this has been my go to for finishes. It is an oil base so it WILL turn wood darker. But it also brings out the grains and therefore I love it. Some argue that an oil based finish lasts longer and is more durable. That I am unsure about, but I do love the warmth it brings.
If you look close, you can see I did not attempt to finish the wood on the seat of the chair between the wicker seat. It is made from leather and the oil base would surely stain that too.
Well thank you for stopping by, and let me know if you have any questions! Hope you have a wonderful day 🙂
