"...You offered a working relationship that truly served to make us happy with the final finishes. Our refinished mahogany handrail is just beautiful and was not an easy color to achieve! The new coffered ceiling beams in our family room were so artfully painted to look like aged wood that no one can tell the difference. The beams are spectacular. Hutter, Emilie, Ed and team - you are amazing! ..."
Reactive Stains are a beautiful way to bring out aspects of your wood to give it a lighter, or aged look.
Old Village uses modern techniques and materials to achieve beautiful finishes on reclaimed oak, pine and others. Most techniques use low VOC and environmentally friendly materials.
