I have a french country dining room set. I do love it, sort of.. It's oak. I'm not thrilled with oak anymore and I'd like to change it.

do I take off the original oak finish and stain it something else?

do I paint it and antique it?

I don't know what to do.. help.


oysh.. I need help. I tried resizing but I don't know what I'm doing.

ok.. lets try this

it's clickable.. I love the set. I'd just like to make it less yellowish.. Those curtains arent staying.. they're just there to keep the nosy neighbors from peeking in while we work on the house.
