How do you know which level is best for your precious piece? It depends on several factors:
How do you visualize it when it's restored?
What is your intended use for the piece(s)?
What type of damage it has suffered—breaks, veneer damage, faded finish, water/fire damage, etc.?
What quality of wood or material is it?
If you’re not sure what level of service your piece may need, our Restoration Consultants can evaluate your piece(s), understand more about your goals and your vision, and guide you with custom furniture restoration options to meet your specific needs.

Our Platinum furniture restoration service is the crème del a crème of our wood restoration services. When we are conducting this service on a piece, we are completely restoring it, in its entirety. From removing the finish by hand, (not dip stripping) to hand sanding, hand staining and finishing. It is a perfect solution for pieces where the wood and finish are severely damaged--the only recourse is a platinum service. This produces a showroom quality result and will last for decades upon decades with proper care.
Remove all finish by hand
Choose stain color or match sample
Refinish Top & Refurbish Base
Our Gold level service includes a complete refinish and restoration of one surface of a piece that may be in poor condition.
For example, if we were to do a Gold Service on your dining room table, we’d be refinishing the top only and touch up the legs and apply a clear coat of finish to ensure the continuity of color and sheen across the table.
Hand staining to match color
Remove finish by hand, of one area such as the top
Finishing of top and base to match
Our Silver level service is ideal for wood furniture with a finish that is still in decent condition and there are no deep scratches or dings that are through the finish into the wood that would require a full restoration. For example, if we did a silver service on an end table, it would include the following:
Solvent wash/prepare finish
Touch up scratches
Finishing entire piece, clear coat with lacquer, shellac, oil, or beeswax
Our bronze level service is perfect for furniture that only needs minor repairs such as:
Minor touch-ups to surface level scratches, dents, or dings in the finish or paint—this can be in your home or in-shop, depending on the severity.
Re-glue of a slightly loose joint
Minor drawer repair for one drawer
