How we work
Step by Step guide for Furniture Restoration
Consultation and Assessment
The first step in the furniture restoration process is a consultation and assessment. We will examine the piece and assess its condition to determine the best course of action. Our experts will discuss the restoration options with the client, including the materials, finishes, and techniques used to restore the piece.
Restoration and Repair
Once a plan has been agreed upon, we will begin the restoration process. This may include stripping the old finish, repairing any damage, and sanding the surface to prepare it for the new finish. Depending on the extent of the damage, the restoration process may take several days or weeks to complete.
Finishing and Refinishing
After the restoration and repair process is complete, we will begin the finishing and
refinishing process. This may involve staining, painting, or applying a protective coat of varnish or wax to the surface of the furniture. We will carefully apply the finish in thin, even coats to achieve the desired result, and allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next.
Final Inspection and Delivery
Once the finishing and refinishing process is complete, we will perform a final inspection to ensure that the piece meets their high standards of quality and craftsmanship. Later we will deliver the piece to the client’s home or business, and provide guidance on how to properly care for and maintain the restored furniture.
There are several types of furniture restoration, depending on the condition of the furniture and the desired outcome. Some of the most common types of furniture restoration include:

This may involve using specialized techniques and materials to protect the furniture from further damage, while preserving its original character and beauty.
