Making old pieces new!

Refinishing/Restoration FAQ

Q: Can my project be refinished?

A: It depends on the project! Some pieces are repairable, but can quickly add up in work hours if completely refinished, so it may not be worth it!

Q: How much will it cost to refinish?

A: We charge hourly to refinish projects, so it really depends on the piece. Shoot us a message with a few pictures and we'll try to get an estimate!

Q: Are there projects you can't refinish?

A: Items with thin or damaged veneers often cannot be refinished. Items with lots of spindles and other detailed embellishments cannot be refinished as they are very time-consuming.

Q: My piece of furniture has a great finish, but it's falling apart, what do I do?

A: We have "fixed up" several pieces without the need to strip and refinish the whole project, sometimes just a little glue and reinforcement is needed.

Q: Somebody has already tried to fix it, can it be fixed again?

A: Most times, yes, but depending on the repair, it may be beyond repair. 

Q: My piece of furniture is missing parts, can you replicate them?

A: It depends on the part, but yes, we can!

Q: Do you completely take apart pieces, refinish, and rebuild?

A: No, if there are any glue joints that are in good shape, we run the risk of breaking the piece further, so we really only repair wat is loose/broken.

Don't Throw it Out!

The finish on this dresser was fine, but it finally fell apart. We glued it up and made it sturdy, and will outlive any of its modern-day particle board counterparts!



This old buffet was in pretty good shape, but needed some help. We applied a modern polyurethane finish that requires no maintenance and is easy to clean up. We even polished up the hardware!
