Wehrli Furniture Restoration Process

The antique restoration process begins by hand stripping, rinsing and cleaning the piece to remove old finish and residue. This process is completed by hand in order to protect the structure and strength of the piece.

It is then disassembled so that any broken, weakened or missing parts can be repaired or replaced. The piece is then rebuilt and re-glued to create a sturdy and dependable antique that is ready for many more years of use. We then carefully select a stain that showcases the character of the piece.

After the stain is applied, we use several coats of a pre-catalyzed lacquer that gives a durability and clarity to the wood. The sheen of the final finish can range from a soft satin to a high gloss, depending on the customer’s taste.

Is Your Piece a Candidate for Restoration?

Family heirloom furniture or worn down garage sale finds may be ideal candidates for restoration. At Wehrli Furniture, we see potential in any piece and have the experience to bring them back to a “like new” condition. So before you throw it away, consider having it restored and prepped for reuse. It can be great for the environment, and great for your home at the same time.
