I hired O-
to produce custom-made doors for a built-in 110" clothing closet that is currently covered by basic curtains. I showed them pictures of my vision for my very small space. I needed mirrors to brighten my poorly lit apt, but did not want to go with standard Home Depot or IKEA stuff. I wanted something special.
are both highly talented; they took measurements and provided me with a number of color samples based on my current decor and the wood they would be using. They also took into great consideration that I did NOT want to mess with or dismantle the current molding.
is as much of a designer and curator as he is a woodworker and has lots of ideas and suggestions for materials & finishes before beginning a job. He doesn't push these things on you; he just has ideas you'd never have thought of that make complete sense.
handles the client end -- he's highly intelligent,
-responsible in returning calls & emails, and is constant touch with
to provide solid answers in a very timely manner. There is a certain
of each talent that makes things run smoothly.
No. It is is not a cheap project. But it's a difficult project no less. The doors have yet to be installed, and I've probably driven these guys nuts with questions & re-assurances on one occasion or another, but if this family-run business doesn't make you feel at least like a close cousin, I'm sure there are few out there who will. Very warm, professional, easy-going. Both being kind, flexible drop-dead gorgeous, intellectual and artistic on so many levels surely doesn't hurt. I'm very excited about the project at hand, have a few more things in mind and could not recommend OscarDECO. I will update with before & after pix once the work is complete.

I had a secretary given to me from my Grandmother who was in failing health. It is not a valuable piece monetarily speaking, but as something from my Grandmother it is invaluable to me.
The condition was poor from being moved around a bit in recent years. It needed to be completely stripped and refinished, and it also needed a missing keyhole cover to be found, replaced and antiqued to match the others. Lastly, the beautiful claw feet were battered - almost unrecognizable - one of which was barely being holding into the base.
came to our home and gave us an estimate. He picked up the secretary and got to work. The process was not quick (about 4 weeks) but it showed
's dedication to quality. He would rather have it done correctly than quickly, which I greatly respected when giving him something so important. He restored the secretary while being true to how it would have been done when it was manufactured. He does amazing work and now that secretary GLOWS. My Grandmother got to see pictures of the finished product and two short months later she passed away. I'm so glad I had this done while she could see how it was brought back to its former
. I recommend
for any restoration project, you will be in good hands.

He called while on his way here for our appointment, I couldn't pick up and when I pressed redial to call him back his cell phone would not allow me to leave a message. It said this phone doesn't allow messages. He said only call him at office number.
While here he looked at the broken mechanism on my Queen
Dixon Furniture Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
chair recliner, and quoted me $250.00 for repair.
Just an outrageous price for the repair, he said it would be that high because he was going to go through many drill bits to fix it and they were $8.00 each.
The only reason I agreed to the price was because it was so hard to find this recliner chair for small spaces.
My only other option was to throw it away and it was only a couple years old. He did fix the chair and it works.
While here I felt he drilled me to as why and how it got broken. I found him insulting!
While he was here, he did agree to drill screws in two loose legs of another chair, at no additional cost, but left the screws heads extending out a little bit. He said they wouldn't go in any further.
Overall, I found him unprofessional, insulting and he overcharged me !

I am surprised by this request as I have already done one months ago. Bottom line is the desk was picked up & taken to their workroom, then returned in beautiful condition. Looked better than I had ever seen it.
Also had a table leaf reenforced.

This was a tough repair - not sure it could be done. I had broken the squared-up frame of a oak futon bed while moving. It had skewed/twisted and broken due to a load shift in the moving truck, thus causing some very unusual wood breakage (twisting, pulling, and breaking of wood). I needed an experienced, knowledgeable repairman at a reasonable cost (after all it was a futon, not a

XXIV coffee table). Found Mr.

on line and he was very responsive and helpful. He ended up taking the broken sections home, studied them, proposed a solution, then did the work. Pick up and delivery by him at no extra charge. He made it as good as new and seemed to enjoy the challenge. Not only fixed it structurally, but all the finish work, too (stain, poly), to it matched the original pieces. Really fun to work with, but don't be in a hurry - he will do it right, but not necessarily fast.

There are some things in life where you really do get what you pay for. People who do good work are in demand, which means that they don't have to be the cheapest around to be the best value and they also are highly sought after....and I believe both of these to be the case with

So we had

repair three bathroom vanities in our rental property.
Dixon Furniture Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
did an absolutely FANTASTIC job not just repairing but restoring the vanities. After filling the chips/gouges/etc. and color matching all of them, he re-clear-coated the entire vanity so the repairs were completely invisible. It took him over a week to be able to come and do the work (he's a one-man band there), but it was well worth the wait. He was very professional through the engagement.
I would not categorize him as expensive, but he's not cheap either. But as I said, you get what you pay for. We have a few other pieces that need attention and we will definitely be calling him again for those when the time comes.

My daughter brought her beagle home and he proceeded to make deep wooden grooves in my
Dixon Furniture Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
wood french doors. The damage was as high as the handle. I called around town trying to find someone to fix the doors with little luck until I happened upon
Dixon Furniture Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
. I believe their specialty is actual furniture but they were willing to come out and look at my doors. A few weeks later they were there to complete the work. The grooves were really deep and you can only sand the door down so far before it looks worse. They were able to refinish my doors! When I look at them I am the only one who knows that they were once damaged. I know that they went out of their way to finish my doors - and I really appreciate that! The price was great too! Oh, and the beagle is banned from my house!

I emailed the company on their website to get an appointment and figured I would have a wait for a reply. Instead, I received a phone call within an hour. I was able to text him a photo of the damage and described where I lived. It turned out I was on his way back from another service call so he was able to come by that afternoon. They were very polite and promptly repaired the buffet that I originally called about and also had a few minutes to fix the bed rail.
Their prices are in line with other furniture repair places I have worked with in the past when a house call is required.
I would definitely call them again.

Overall I was happy with the final product, however it was my mistake to not read where this provider was located compared to my home, and that is why I answered "no" as to using this service provider again. He kindly met me half way for the drop off of the table, but I drove to him in Manassas for the pick up. The workmanship was good, the communication was good, the professionalism was great (appreciate the offer to meet halfway) - I just spent a lot of time in the car when there are closer options for this service. I don't have a means to rank the price competitiveness, because I didn't compare this table with other providers.
