With the more complicated process of a complete dining suite restoration , we take pride in assuring all processes including removal of old finish, sanding and relglueing are done with the utmost care and precision ensuring every component is structural and ready to continue to work for another 30 years.
With an antique commode restoration or wardrobe, we have had many requests varying from a simple clean and polish to a full conversion.
Some of these conversions have included modifiyng to full open bookcases and using the doors as hall mirrors
Converting wardrobes into display units with mirror backs , glass shelves and down lights is a popular choice with our clients .
Upcycling existing furniture is always a wise and often stunning decision.
No matter what the restoration project; from a humble chair repair to the more complex restoration pieces the emphasis is always on skill and quality applications of design and polish.
