REFINISHING & RESTORATION

From The Merriam-Webster Dictionary
Re·fin·ish, verb : to give (as furniture) a new surface
Res·to·ra·tion, noun : a bringing back to a former position or condition

Refinishing and Restoration can bring new life back to your furniture. It will save you money in most cases and make those time worn pieces new again. Why buy a new cheap piece of furniture when you can refinish a solid wood piece that you already have? The Painted Door can refinish or restore any solid wood pieces you have. We repair and touch-up as well. Have a piece that you want to match to something else? No problem! We can do it. Pick-up and delivery is available. Give us a call for an estimate today.
