Two Tone refers to applying two different stains on the furniture. Shown as an example is the Albany Single Pedestal Dining Table with a two tone finish. In this example, the table top is shown with a Michael’s Cherry color and the base of the table is painted with a blank paint. Not all two tones work this way.
Applying more than one stain doesn’t work for the most part. You make the furniture look too busy which is why only applying two stains works best. Other examples of two toning is making the frame of a dresser one color and having the drawer fronts be another.
