Re: Making newer furniture fit with old home?
What you are describing sounds like an oak dinning room table, which should fit in with the craftsman style. You could strip it and stain to match the woodwork if you desire but having everything match the same finish is not a requirement as far as I'm concerned. You might first want to try cleaning the wood work with some liquid TSP, It may not be as dark as you think it is.
