    How did you wrap your beams. Did you miter each face or use butt joints?

    Each side of the beams was assembled separately with three pieces of the flooring and then mitered on the corners. It was quite the process but worth it in my mind! :)

    It's is a porcelain tile actually. I don't have the info on it anymore but there are several out there similar.

    The beams are just clear coated, not stained. The coloring comes from the walnut wood. Thanks for your interest.

    Thank you! I "collected" them from antique stores, garage sales, re-sale shops for an entire summer. I ended up with 16 (two full sets of 8). My biggest comment is to pay attention to the height of the back when purchasing. I like the mis-matched look best when it isn't too sloppy...and using chairs of similar heights helps achieve this. Happy hunting. :)

    It between the beams is just sheetrock. The beams underneath are original, but wrapped in walnut flooring to make them special. :)
