The below pictures are of refinishing work I did for a fine jewelry store, Ford Gittings and Kane in Rome, GA. Please feel free to stop by the store, located downtown on Broad Street.

The main thing to know is that these display cabinets (low w/ glass) are about 75 yrs old – not only did I refinish the cabinets but the glass and lights were also replaced – the tall cabinets on the wall were attached to each other so the sides were not finished and rough so they had to be covered – plus we put the tops and the crown molding on to set it off – give it class – go by and have a look

ANTIQUE & FINE FURNITURE REFINISHING and FURNITURE STRIPPING

Furniture refinishing requires a consideration for both the desired look of the piece as well as the type wood the furniture is constructed of. Certain wood types just don't look right in certain finishes. In addition to considering these two factors when refinishing an antique, you need to consider the age and condition of the antique. Some wood furniture is more delicate than other types furniture so you need to be much more careful or maybe a better word is delicate during the refinishing process. You need to be particularly careful when refinishing fine wood veneer pieces as you can go straight to the substrate, not a good thing. Fine veneer furniture is among the most difficult types of furniture to refinish.

If you are in need of antique furniture refinishing, let us take a look at the piece. We can then tell you whether 1) the piece of furniture can be refinished and 2) the approximate cost of the project.

If your antique needs some repair before refinishing, check out some of my antique furniture repair pics.
