Honoring the Past

Choosing to restore antique or refinish modern furniture will preserve the item for years to come.  

Refinishing and restoration does not lower the value of the vast majority of furniture.  Visibly damaged or compromised finish is no longer protecting the base wood increasing the risk of irreparable damage.  "Well-conceived and well-executed refinishing and restoration usually enhances the value of just about any piece of old furniture.  Exceptions are those rare (often museum quality) pieces that have somehow survived in great 'original' condition," Peter Cook, Executive Producer of Antiques Roadshow, wrote in article published in Professional Refinishing.
