SF Good Questions: Unfinished Furniture?

Pin it button big

Hi AT:SF, We just moved into a new place which is significantly bigger than our old one, but we don't have enough furniture to fill it, and we spent most of our money on the actual place, leaving little for the furnishings. I am considering purchasing unfinished furniture because the price seems to be right...

... and I've found a great set that I love at PatioandHomeFurniture.com (this is the image of the coffee table, but it has matching pieces that might look nice).

Does unfinished furniture really look as nice as it sounds like it could? Is there a difference in quality between different types of unfinished wood?

I'd greatly appreciate your advice.

Thanks,

Sari
