About 1 year ago, I did custom side tables for my sister. They are made out of purple heart, darken with BLO and a few coats of Shellac over them.
The color matches pretty nicely the color of there sofa’s over a sun lighting during the day. The tables are lighter in color, but it does a pretty good match, same tonal palette of colors.
Included are pictures of the tables. I am now building the entertainment center with matching wood and color for the matching set.
