Whether you just want to change the color of your furniture, or have pieces that are worn and need it refinished, I can help you create the look you want.  My passion for what I do gives me the ability to bring older furniture back to life.  If you have furniture that was built before the great import explosion, the chances are that what you have is probably better built than most of what is available today.  Real wood rather than "engineered" wood (particle board), and beautiful hardwoods that just aren't available today makes many older pieces well worth bringing back to life again, and can truly be called "heirloom pieces".

Furniture is an investment that can last for generations. Keep yours in beautiful condition by protecting it from common household mishaps. Here are some helpful hints to help you keep your furniture looking its best:

  • Avoid all cleaners containing ammonia. Ammonia can damage furniture made of wood.
  • Frequently dust with a soft, dry, clean cloth.
  • Use furniture polish that does not contain a high amount of alcohol as it can damage wood finishes.
  • Use coasters with felt or cork bottoms to reduce water rings.
  • Protect furniture from hot serving dishes with a natural fiber table cloth, oven mitt or trivet.
  • Never allow moisture to be trapped between glass and a wood surface. Make sure surfaces are completely dry before the glass is replaced.
  • Position furniture away from direct sunlight. Sunlight can dry and fade wood surfaces.
  • To prevent your pets from damaging your wood furniture protect surfaces with a natural fiber table cloth, chair cover or protective pad.


Wood and Moisture: Preserving the Delicate Balance

Too much moisture or dryness can be an enemy of your wood furniture. Moisture in furniture can often lead to mildew, while dryness can cause furniture to lose its natural luster and weaken joints. Maintaining this delicate balance for your furniture is important to keeping it looking nice year after year. Here are a few tips on preventing moisture or dryness from damaging your furniture:

  • Avoid placing furniture in steamy bathrooms or laundry areas which may cause exposure to excess moisture.
  • Maintain a consistent temperature in your home. Dramatic temperature changes can affect humidity levels causing more moisture to exist in the air.
  • Don’t let your home environment get too dry. Excessively dry areas can cause your wood furniture to shrink, split or become brittle.
  • Protect wood surfaces from direct contact with water. Place glass surfaces over table tops or use coasters, trivets and natural fiber table cloths and pads to protect your furniture from hot or wet surfaces.
  • Also, be careful when cleaning furniture hardware or glass accessories to ensure moisture does not remain on the wood after cleaning.
