We then decided to bring in 6 chairs from our dining room set for new upholstery and 2 vintage style chairs from the 60's for new upholstery and repair (tightening and all new padding).
was excellent in her knowledge of what is worth redoing and what pieces may not, (unless you have a sentimental attachment, for example). She also has an extensive selection of fabrics to choose from. The dining room chairs are stunning, absolutely new life and the cost was minor. The two chairs that were completely redone are fabulous also and the cushions are reversible!! I have now brought a
in, with fabric that I had from my Grandmother, to have the top recovered and I am planning to have stools redone. They pick-up your furniture, the time to complete the job was exactly as stated (a few weeks) and they delivered. This is the highest rating that I have given a business. Note the price was for all pieces and was quite extensive work.

I left two phone messages a week apart before
called apologetically and we discussed what the table needed and what he thought he could do, gave me a ballpark estimate, and suggested I email photos of the table to him. Seven work days later I called to check on the estimate. I spoke to
who said the subcontractor who takes care of their email was on vacation so they hadn t seen my messages or photos. She asked me to repeat all the info I d given to
and put in the email. She then suggested
squeeze a visit to our house in since we live close to the shop.
called the next day and said he didn t want to waste time with a home visit, pictures should be good enough, and gave a final competitive estimate; however, he warned that if some veneer needed to be replaced the job could run $300 more. The people were very friendly on the phone and
sounded generally knowledgeable, but we weren t confident enough to give them this job.

I contacted a

by phone for information. The company profile stated

s reupholsters as well as repairs/refinishes furniture, which
Skokie Furniture Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
confirmed, even though Angie s List at the time I was researching didn t have them in the reupholster category. For an estimate she said either we could bring the chairs to their shop, have

pick them up for a $65 charge, or take our own photos of the chairs and either drop them off by hand or mail them by the mail service or email them the latter discouraged since their email system unreliable . She offered to provide fabric sample books, order fabric for us or we could provide our own fabric; we should assume 1 yard of fabric per chair. I did send the photos attached to an email with the relevant information she requested. It took several phone calls to
Skokie Furniture Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
for this process to get completed and to finally get a written estimate - which did not yet include cost of fabric - for which we could have bought new chairs instead.

came to our home to photograph our table. She took notes of our concerns and desires about the refinishing to help the workers at the shop reach their estimate. She also noted we had a smaller end table which perhaps they could use for comparison while working on the coffee table. We received a competitive estimate from

, but decided to go with another company who sent an actual woodworker to our home for the estimate and to walk us through this refinishing process.

Tasky came to our home to do the estimate. He emanated wood working experience. He explained the table needed stripping for the tackiness, sanding for the

remaining, and filling of the chipped areas. He felt confident that he could achieve good results with the following caveats: even though the table top had good veneer, sanding would be limited or the table top would become uneven; since teak is a softer wood the hard satin finish he d apply would protect better than an oil finish, but not make the table damage-proof; and from years in the sun the natural table color had been lightened and refinishing wouldn t change this. Pick-up and drop-off at our home were free. Upon return many of the table s wood grain highlights shone anew and most of the damages had been repaired. We re delighted with the

s work.

This is the fourth job I've given them--and you'd think they'd appreciate my business. It's hard to say what the worst thing was--the amount of time they kept my table (7 months) or the peeling veneer they put on or the spots they missed or the fact that they don't give a receipt, leaving the price open to dispute. I would never use this company again. Every time I called and asked about my table, I was told it would be delivered next week. Next week went on for 7 months. I was told when it was finally delivered that I live too far away from them. So why did they take so many jobs from me over the years??? It's a wonder that these people stay in business at all. They are so unprofessional in the quality of work as well as their responsiveness.

He repaired the vertical crack and repainted the spot where he used wooden pins beautifully. This is an older gentleman who has been in the business locally for decades. He does wonderful work, the price was amazingly fair, and I would strongly recommend him for smaller projects. If time or expediency is an issue, he might not be the best for the job. He did finish this small project within one week.
