Tips On Restoring Antique Furniture

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 17, 2010

The restoring or refinishing of antique oak furniture can be a real challenging task if you're not equipped with some vital information. The first thing you should know that before you start changing the original appearance of an antique that it may diminish its value from the point of view of a collector. Collectors place a higher value on an antique if its appearance is completely unchanged. This is not to say that the piece can't be "cleaned up" but they are concerned with its originality.

Keep in mind that when you decide to restore a piece of antique furniture, you're going to be putting a considerable amount of time and effort into it. Another thing to consider is that this process will not necessarily be inexpensive. Many people have started a project like this only to find that the cost and the amount of time it took wasn't really worth it.

In the case where you have a piece of antique oak furniture that has been badly damaged due to being exposed to the elements, it might be the perfect project to restore anyway. Restoring this particular piece could greatly improve its appearance and add a thing of beauty to your home.

Keep in mind that if your piece has a large amount of ornate or carved surfaces that this will add a lot of extra time to complete the project. Realize that the project could take up to several months because of the intricacy of the detail. We suggest that when in doubt, or if you have any questions to leave the task up to the professionals. While restoration of furniture is possible on your own, why not have us complete the task for you with our years of experienced staff. Factoring in the time and cost of doing it yourself is far more expensive than actually hiring someone to do it for you, not only is it less expensive but the result will be satisfactory on every level. So contact us today should you need any furniture restoration or refinishing needs.

Low Cost Holiday Gifts -- Your Restored Furniture

Joseph Coupal - Monday, October 11, 2010

The holidays are quickly approaching and that means increased traffic into your home.  Our great team at Kenneth C Lewis can have your home upgraded in time for Thanksgiving.  All of us at Kenneth C. Lewis  pride ourselves not just on the quality of our results, but the speed and efficiency that we deliver along the way.  So if you are contemplating a home improvement project before the new year, call us now to get your work scheduled and prioritized.  

Now is also the time that you start giving serious thought of what Holiday gift to give your family and special friends.  Consider the array of furniture works that you have “hidden away” that serve little functional or aesthetic use to you. Even minor furniture restoration can turn your unused furniture into the perfect Holiday gift at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new.  And of course, your complete satisfaction is guaranteed!

So scan you attic, closets, and even your display items that make good candidates for furniture refinishing and restoration.  Your holiday shopping list may just get smaller.
