Since 1983, Wehrli Woodworks has been Chicagoland’s complete source for furniture restoration and refinishing. We continue to specialize in restoring furniture of all periods and styles. Recently, we changed our name/logo to Wehrli Furniture Co. to further highlight our commercial and residential services. Our new logo reflects our four featured services; including furniture restoration, upholstery, painting and custom design.
Whether you’re a consumer, interior designer, furniture dealer or builder, dealing with one person on a project is always easier. Multiple points of contact usually means time spent relaying messages that get lost in translation, instead of time spent on hobbies, selling or taking care of customers. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have one point of contact for all your commercial/residential furniture refinishing, painting, upholstery and custom design needs?
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.

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.
Have you ever wished you could take your old furniture and make it tie with a new piece you’ve purchased? Then the painful reality hits, all my existing furniture looks like it’s from the 70’s!! How am I going to afford to throw all my furniture away and start over!
Often time’s customers look at their furniture and see a piece of junk. To be fair, it’s hard to imagine a dilapidated chair, table or cabinet being anything different. This post is a testament that anything can be transformed into something beautiful again.
A few months back, I received a call from a customer who wanted her former built-in cabinets turned into stand-alone cabinets. Because they were built-in, the dimensions on the tops and sides weren’t correct for cabinets that would stand-alone. Therefore, new tops and sides would have to be built to make each side match.
Stripping is arguably the most crucial step of the refinishing process. It sets the proper foundation for sanding, staining and applying lacquer. Stripping is also the worst part of refinishing. The stripper will have deal with fumes, grime, possible skin irritation and strenuous labor. The vast majority of people/businesses don’t have the facilities or supplies to properly strip a piece. Also, over-the-counter products often don’t work on today’s tough finishes. Have you ever wished somebody would offer this service at a reasonable price and get the job done right?
