Refinishing involves complete removal of the original finish.

The furniture is sanded, dents are filled, and the new finish is reapplied.

This process is not recommended for antiques, because it will remove the character and the patina built over the years, impossible to reproduce. The value of the pieces will also be diminished.

Time and usage affect even the finest pieces of furniture becoming old and worn. However, by repairing and refinishing your furniture, you can bring them back to their original finish.

To decide whether refinishing is worthwhile, consider the following:

•  Is the furniture built well with strong joints and nice lines?

•  Is it useful to you (plenty of storage space)?

•  Can you replace your furniture with another piece with the same quality and at a fair price?

•  Do you like the color of the furniture?

•  Do you want a custom finish matching another piece of furniture in your house?

•  Does the piece of furniture require repairs? (i.e. broken legs or dowels, drawers coming apart).

Take all of these elements into consideration, when you have to make a decision about a cherished piece of furniture.

The process of refinishing will require the following:

•  Removing the existing finish to the raw wood.

•  Sand the wood with different grits of sandpaper.

•  Repair any damages such as dents, nicks, scratches, broken legs and joints, and loose veneer.

•  Stain the wood if necessary to match the original finish or create a custom finish.

•  Seal the wood.

•  Apply several coats of finish of your choice.

To get the best results, the types of finish we use are sprayed in our spray booth.
