TOP TRENDING ITEM

WHITE OAK WITH NATURE STAIN

The top design trend for floating shelves is a white wall background and a white oak shelf with a natural raw appearance. Our in house nature stain was created to keep your shelves looking as close to raw as possible. While most oak tends to be an intense yellow-orange color, this stain gives your shelves a low saturation of color

Maple is a light toned wood with a low amount of knots and cracks. Maple wood has a fine, uniform texture with a mostly straight grain. Because Maple is a relatively hard wood, it doesn't soak in stain as well as other wood types so we don't offer a lot of stain options although Brazilian Cherry and Smoke does look great on Maple.
