you refinish furniture ? Believe it or not, this is the most
common question I am asked. Yes, we refinish furniture.
Do you strip furniture ?
Yes, but we only offer "stripping only" service on clear and stained
Do you strip interior or exterior
doors, shutters or woodwork ? Sorry, but we do
My furniture is not that old, will you
still work on it ? Absolutely ...yes we will. We
are very diverse in the type of furniture we refinish and restore.
If it's worth doing, we do it.
Do you restore antique furniture, or
do you only do refinishing? Restoring Antique
furniture is my first love, but unfortunately the antique roadshow
mentality has swept across America and not many people are having
work done to their antiques anymore. I am afraid this will have dire
consequences in the future, as these old pieces need care and
maintenance for future preservation. Less may be better, but nothing
Do you paint furniture?
Yes, we offer a variety of painted finishes and are always open to
your ideas as well. Lately, rubbed through antiqued paint finishes
and shabby chic painted finishes have been very trendy and we do a
lot of this type of finishing.
What type of paint and finishes do you
use? Most of our modern finishes are Sherwin Williams
catalyzed lacquers. We also use shellac, oils, and waxes when the
job calls for it.
Do you offer pick up and delivery?
Do you charge for pick up and
delivery? This depends on various circumstances. If we
feel we can do it without charging extra, we will do our best to
waive any delivery fees. You would be surprised how often we may
have another job going on in your home town. When we can group jobs
together...everyone wins. Just keep in mind, that "free delivery" is
a scam. Businesses can't operate by doing anything for
free...especially the costly service of running a truck around.
Usually, the cost is absorbed into the price of the job. The larger
the job, the easier it becomes to build in the delivery cost.
We prefer to be honest with our clients and if $50 needs to be
tacked on for delivery, that is what we will tell you.
Do you work in my area?
If you live in Southeast PA or anywhere in NJ, than Probably....we
may be a small business, but we cover a huge service area!!
Do you accept small jobs?
Yes, we do. However, to keep a cap on very small jobs
overtaking the shop, we have a shop minimum of $150.
Do you perform on site (in home)
repairs ? We no longer offer this service.
Do you refinish kitchen cabinets?
Yes, we enjoy doing kitchens for our clients. Part of the job
(casework) is performed in the home, and part (doors, drawers) in
