Color Samples, Finishes and Woods

The following are intended to give you an idea of the colors of our earring and necklace holders. They're pictures of the segments of the individual racks. However, the colors viewed here may appear substantially different than the actual earring or necklace holder for many reasons, including your monitor settings, video card and browser. If you need further assistance in selecting a color, please call or e-mail us. We'd be happy to send you samples.

From time to time, we offer maple, African Mahogany or cherry units that are painted white.
We are now using African mahogany instead of Honduras mahogan and will have new pictures soon.

Occasionally we have earring holders with dark red and dark brown finishes:

Oak Earring Holder Rack with Dark Brown Finish
Honduras Mahogany Earring Holder Rack with a Dark Brown Finish
Cherry Earring Holder Rack with Dark Red Finish

Stained wood is actually many colors rather than a solid color. And any one piece of oak will look slightly different than another piece even if they are stained at the same time with the same product.

Description of our finishes:

Clear. We use Minwax Antique Oil Finish. This turns the bare wood a slight amber color. From Minwax: "Minwax® Antique Oil Finish is recommended for interior wood surfaces such as cabinets, tables, paneling, doors and trim. It produces a soft luster that is durable, easily maintained and highly resistant to staining." Antique Oil finish is mainly varnish and linseed oil. Clear is our most popular finish.

If you are familiar with some of the different stains on the market, you might recognize the name Watco. Our medium brown is Watco Danish Oil Finish--Dark Walnut. You see this stain used extensively on new furniture and on moldings in houses that have been built in the last 20 years. Commercial manufacturers almost always add a clear coat over the stain. After staining medium brown, the units are finished with Krylon's clear satin finish, which is a clear acrylic coating. Medium brown is the second most popular color.

White and semi-flat black are Krylon spray paints. The coverage is fairly solid, although you will still see some oak grain through the paint. Krylon products are carried by many stores, including Kmart and Wal*Mart. You can check Krylon's site for a current list of stores.

Description of Other Woods Available:

Cherry has a reddish tint. It will darken with exposure to light, but is naturally much lighter than the very dark brown or red finish manufacturers often refer to as cherry. Over time the color darkens and becomes richer with exposure to UV light.

In the photo on the right, the top rack is cherry recently cut, sanded and finished. The bottom rack is from an earring holder we made about eight years ago. On the left-hand side you can see some of the original lighter color where the rack has been sitting in the side slots of the earring holder.

Honduras mahogany also has a reddish tint, although it is slightly more orange than cherry. It similarly darkens with exposure to light.

Walnut is naturally a dark brown.

Maple is lighter in color than oak, with a slight yellow tint from the antique oil finish.

All these woods are finished by hand with two coats of a clear finish (Minwax Antique Oil).

Cherry darkens with age
