Distressed Furniture Guide – General Distressing Information

Distressing furniture is the art of adding the look of age to a furniture piece. Distressing is an expensive and artistic process that is usually hand-done by craftsmen using different tools to purposely dent, scratch, stain, chip, and/or rub the furniture finish. Distressing may or may not include: crackle, natural wood, rasping, wormholes, pin holes, rub-through finishing, cat tails, fly specs, chain dents/dings, knot exaggerations, gouges, chisel lifts, worn corners, hand-planing, and/or round/square pegs. It requires more work to distress a piece of furniture than it does to leave it undistressed. One of the biggest perks of distressing is that it will make normal wear and tear in your furniture’s future less noticeable. In other words, if you scratch your table surface, it will be much more prominent if it is the only scratch on the table.With a little prior distressing, the accidental future scratch is more likely to blend in and look natural. Distressing brings antiqued life to new furniture. Note that all types of distressing are in random patterns and locations. This means that the distressing will not match from one piece to the next, since it is meant to look like an antique and is normally hand-done.Distressing is an extra step in the finish process, a bonus of sorts, and should not be confused for low quality or damage.

Here are a few examples of distressing:

Example of distressed furniture.

Distressing levels vary. Note the image on the left has very light distressing, whereas the image on the right is heavily distressed. “No Distressing” is rare. Usually there is at least a very light distress put on the finish.

Solid Wood Furniture: Types, Benefits and Care

When it comes to choosing furniture for the home or office many people will want something that looks good and will last a long time. At FurnitureCart we have a great selection of wooden furniture pieces by top manufacturers such as Ashley Furniture, Homelegance, Coaster, or Samuel Lawrence Furniture. In this article we will explore the major types of wood, and how you should consider them while buying your wood furniture.

Mahogany? Maple? Oak? Birch? Pine? Or?

There are many types of wood. They vary in softness and hardness, flexibility, and even what pattern the grain of the wood makes. There is one main difference between hard and soft wood. Trees that generate soft wood are evergreens and have needles that remain year round (pine, spruce, redwood, or cedar). Hardwood comes from leaf trees that loose their leaves annually (birch, maple, cherry, oak, ash, walnut, or mahogany). Hardwoods usually offer greater strength and stability. Softwoods are used for intricately carved pieces.

Bedroom

• For bedroom furniture cherry and mahogany are the best choices. They usually feature nice finish and very durable. Cheaper woods for the bedroom include beech and pine. They are inexpensive and work great in children’s rooms. Recently aromatic cedar is used for drawer construction what helps to repels moths and leaves behind a fresh smell. You should remember, however, that cedar is a soft wood so for durable drawers, hardwood construction is the best.

Kitchen

• Maple and pine are for the kitchen furniture. Pine can be easily re-painted and stained in the future. Maple is sturdy and attractive but can be costly to use. However, it can handle a lot of weight and will last much longer.

Take care of your furniture:

• Read the manufacturer’s care directions for wood furniture carefully and keep them for future reference
• Wax or polish your hardwood furniture occasionally.
• Keep humidity at 25 to 35 percent.
• Don’t expose hardwood furniture to continuous direct sunlight.
• Don’t place hardwood furniture directly in front of heater or fireplaces.
• Keep table leaves as close as possible to the table, so that they will adjust to the same humidity level.
• Clean hardwood surfaces with a mild non-alkaline soap and water. Dry immediately with a soft cloth.

Overall
Furniture made of solid wood will give you the most use, as it is more durable and sturdy. The top woods to consider while buying the furniture go in this order: mahogany, cherry, oak, maple, beech and pine. Mahogany – most durable, but is also expensive. Pine and beech woods are cheaper, they still make excellent furniture. Hardwood is overall a good investment because it will last a long time and will add charm and distinction to your home. Veneer; however is a good alternative for pieces that don’t get much use.
