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 – 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.

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?
