Furniture Refinishing – The Giant Conference Table!!

It’s a fairly safe assumption that a conference table is a businesses most important piece of furniture. Existing and potential customers sit at this table to talk about the products and services a business offers. No matter how great of a business you have, the state of your conference table is forming a first impression in your customer’s minds. What impression does the current state of your conference table say about your business? 

Furniture Refinishing – Two Brothers Table Makeover!!

Having a great restaurant and/or bar is difficult to accomplish. The industry is extremely competitive and always changing. Obviously, the quality of the food, drinks, service and location are all huge factors in achieving long-term success. However, the décor and layout of a restaurant also play a large role in people coming back. Within this, the furniture is a huge aspect and expense for any restaurant or bar. Tables and chairs that are not will kept are a direct reflection on the establishment, regardless of how great their food or drinks are. 

Furniture Refinishing – Rocker Refinish And Reupholstery

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. 

Furniture Refinishing – Church Pew Resurrection!!

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.

Furniture Refinishing – The Cabinets That Were Anything But Custom!!

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. 

Have You Ever Stripped Furniture??

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?
