Small businesses that offer furniture upholstery are becoming harder to find. Lots of people claim to be upholsterers but can’t deliver a quality product. Get a bad one and your liable to have fabric patterns that don’t line up. I once heard the quote, “Have you ever been surprised by the price of hiring a professional? Try hiring an amateur first and the price will feel cheap.” Really great upholstery is an art.
At Wehrli Furniture, we have the expertise to transform your furniture to fit any new style or trend. If a traditional stain doesn’t work with the current décor of your home, you don’t need to go out and buy a new piece of furniture. Obviously, we can always stain your piece of furniture and make it look great again. However, we can also paint or glaze it. Either of those options can take even the most dated pieces and make them modern and fresh again.
When you own a furniture refinishing business, you sign up to see a lot of rockers. In the years we’ve been doing this, we’ve seen rockers in every size/state imaginable.
Recently, a rocker came in that didn’t start out as a rocker. In its previous life, it was just a normal chair. At some point, stretchers were added and it was transformed into a rocker.
A piece of furniture can be any style you imagine. It can be transformed to match a traditional or modern look. Painting furniture is an excellent way to keep a quality piece of furniture, while changing it to look brand new.
Recently, we received an email from a customer looking to change the style of her secretary hutch. The piece of furniture was in phenomenal shape and really needed no work. However, it didn’t fit the style of the new home she was building.
It can be overwhelming to buy new furniture that fits in with the pieces you already own and enjoy. At Wehrli Furniture, we specialize in transforming the dated furniture you’ve already purchased, to match your current tastes. As long as you have a vision, we can turn it into a reality.

Furniture refinishing and furniture restoration are two very different things. When a customer asks to have their piece refinished, that means stripping its original finish, sanding, staining to match the customer’s color preference and spraying with lacquer to match the desired sheen. While all of those tasks are included in a restoration, they don’t make up the real challenge.
Often I get calls from potential customers stating, “I don’t have an antique piece of furniture, can you help me refinish or transform it?” The answer is always a resounding yes!! People tend to think of their grandmother’s glossy dining room furniture as things that get refinished.
With spring right around the corner, our attention begins to focus on being outside. A large portion of time spent outdoors is usually on the patio or deck. Consequently, we begin to think about taking the patio furniture out of storage. Unfortunately, we often find our set in a state of disrepair. Whether it’s wood or metal, mother nature doesn’t play favorites. Moisture rusts metal furniture and the sun fades and dries out wood pieces. At Wehrli Furniture, we offer cost-effective solutions for outdoor furniture.
A saying I often hear is “less is more.” As it relates to furniture refinishing, some pieces are so pretty that they speak for themselves. Sometimes, restoring a piece of furniture means bringing it back to its simple intended beauty. Painting or staining it would just detract from its best characteristics.
