Wall cladding is a thing of the past, but pine is still a cheap and consistently popular furniture option instead of the more expensive oak or beech designs. Also, being light in color means that pine furniture doesn t make a room feel really small like the darker woods such as mahogany manage to do. Also, you can buy a full set of room furniture for the price of a single, medium sized item of oak or mahogany furniture.
Pine furniture is one of the most customizable furniture materials on the market. It enables the homeowner to be creative if they wish, as the wood itself can be finished in a variety of ways. The main options are varnishing, a clear coat over the surface of the wood so you can still see the wood color underneath and creates a smooth and glossy finish. Painting is another option. With painting, the sky s the limit as there are an infinite number of paint colors and finishes, from matte, to silk to gloss.
For those with more rustic homes, crackle glaze is always a popular option for coating pine furniture. To achieve the crackle glazed finish, all that needs to be done is apply a base coat in a color you want the cracks to be, then apply a clear coat of crackle finish paint and then paint over the top of that. Another option available is to use a wood stain. The luxury of this is that you can still see the different shades and patterns in the wood, but in a different color.
The beauty of owning pine furniture is that if you get bored of the finish your wood has, you can simply rub it down and start again. You can even go from having a painted item of furniture to one which has been finished with a varnish. This is because pine is a rather robust material. Despite being classed as a soft wood, it is being grown on mass and bred to produce a dense and durable wood, making it the perfect material with which to produce furniture.
With people wanting to put their own personal stamp on a home, why would anyone want to buy characterless furniture? For the cost of buying a Formica covered monstrosity made from plastic covered formed wood pulp, you can purchase a beautiful item of pine furniture. With pine; every item you buy looks unique, even if you buy two of the same product. This is due to the grain of the wood. If you look at any piece of pine furniture there is a distinctive yet individual pattern in the grain of the wood. The pattern varies between straight and wavy lines, to circles, to black and gnarly knots where branches used to be, reminding you that it was once a tree, but has been shaped and polished into what could be described as a work of art for your personal pleasure.
