Due to the nature of patinas, all of our products will be slightly different then the item pictured. When patinas are applied the liquid settles in lower areas creating puddles. Where the puddles are formed and how long they take to dry will affect how the patina looks. The longer the patina sits on the steel before drying dictates how dark or light the patina will be. Though we can not garantee it will look exaclty like the time pictured, we can assure all of our products will be slighty different then others giving each product it's own unique colors and marbling. This allows each product that is made by Hateley Furniture to be appreiciated individually.
