    French Polishing

    Made popular in the Victorian era, French Polishing is a technique used to restore furniture, giving it a sympathetic finish and deep colour suitable for older and antique furniture.  There are different restoration methods, which depends on the type of furniture and damage. Some items require complete refinishing, whilst others can just need only part restoration. Get in touch for a free estimate for French Polishing/Furniture Restoration.

    Up-Cycling Furniture

    They say the old furniture is the best, often very well made and built to withstand the test of time! So why replace when you can up-cycle your furniture?
