The before and after shots on this oak drop-side side table show that with a bit of TLC you can give most old furniture a new lease on life. Our full restoration process starts with a complete dis-assemble. We then clean-up any hardware and strip the paint or lacquer surface. Once stripped we clean the joints and give all the pieces a full sand. At this stage we complete any repair work that is required and then re-assemble, give it a final sand and put it through the 5 stage polish process. As you can see it is quite an involved process, but totally worth it. The piece once belonged to our client’s mother and they were very happy with the end result.
It pays to have good insurance…..Seamless repair work for our client on their heirloom German-made clock.
The Brief – Custom build a display case to house clients ever-growing collection to match others of a similar style that they had previously commissioned. Renowned Furniture delivered – A traditional display cabinet with glass shelving, mirrored back and brass hardware. LED feature lighting was included to highlight the collectables and the electricals were hidden under the base with a removable panel in the bottom for ease of access
This was a job that involved making a dining table, a coffee table and a couple of side tables.
The client had existing shaped bench seating in their dining area that they thought would not be cost effective to remove, so they had a table made to fit the space. The larger dining table is stained Victorian Ash and has a 10mm toughened glass top.
The coffee table and side tables were made to match to tie the new table into the existing décor. we actually matched the stain colour to the other furniture in their living area.
Our master craftsmen transformed this Cedar sideboard to a vanity unit. The unit has been polished in an oil-based polyurethane with added hardener, to make it moisture resistant and hard wearing.
Here is the final product:
We previously restored a cabinet for this client.
She came back to us with two of old rocker chairs and pose to us the challenge of making them more modern.
Her husband had just wanted to buy new ones to replace them, but we were able to modify and reupholster for less than the cost to replace with something similar.
These are the same chairs (base and frame) but with new modified arms and upholstery.
The before and after is a real transformation.
Our client wanted a stylish storage solution for her home.
We built in custom file drawers so she could do away with traditional filing cabinets and made them into individual units that could be easily split to be moved around the home if needed.
Here are some pictures of the finished product.
Here is the custom filing cabinet installed at the client’s home.
Moving can be brutal to fragile items like ceramics and figurines.
A client of ours damaged their ceramics during a move.
Luckily we found a talented ceramics restorer/repair specialist, Michelle, of “As It Was” Ceramics Repair to fix the damage.
Take a look at how the ceramics are now seamlessly restored to their original state. It’s as if they didn’t break into many pieces!
This little drinks trolley came to us looking a bit sad and tired. The client’s family was going to throw it away, but he thought it could shine again and saved it from the tip. Just look at it now!
Our solution is this insert that we built and installed to fill in the wasted space at the back of our client’s kitchen bench.
It can double as a kitchen island and storage space for her various kitchen tools and equipment.
