*Will your rustic furniture match my rustic furniture I already have?
Unfortunately, it will not match what you have, for a couple of reasons. First, rustic pine wood darkens as it ages, so depending on how long you had your piece there is a very good chance that it will be darker compared to any new piece you buy. Secondly, there are many Mexican manufactures of rustic pine furniture, making the same style, design and using the same pine wood, but they all have a different finishing or staining process. Different finishing/staining techniques, results in a lighter or darker stain that what you have. Keep in mind that rustic furniture is “rustic furniture” and although they may not match, they will blend together.
*Are all your products available to ship?
