I can't stop looking at my coffee table. It needed some TLC to the top and they made it look better than when it was purchased. The woodgrains show and the finish is rich and has a great lustre. They touched up additional areas to complete the overall finished look. They pick up and deliver! Also the work was turned around quickly. I can't wait to work with them again.

As usual the work was excellent. Both chairs were taken apart and put back together while maintaining their antique look. Both chairs were very rickety and now are stronger than when they were new, 100+ years ago. The end table was restored while maintaining the intricate pattern on the table top and the small antique wooden coffee grinder's wood was restored. I have now had Frankenstein Furniture...

In addition to the current job, I have successfully used Frankenstein Furniture to repair / refurbish a mahogany dining room table, a two drawer cherry chest, two walnut rocking chairs, an oak end table, an oak play table and a round oak side table. I don't believe there is a job that they can't do well, at a reasonable price and on time. They are also very good people who are pleasure to work wit...

Once again Frankenstein delighted me! They had done excellent refinishing work – precious dining room table and chairs – for me previously. This most recent project was a repair: reattaching a leg to a piano bench. When I called, I wondered whether they would be interested in performing the relatively small task, but they said immediately that they would be glad to help. Now, following the repair,...

Frankenstein Furniture did a fantastic job on all of the pieces. Nobody would know there were ever any problems with any of the items. The work was reasonably priced and delivered when promised. I would recommend anyone with antique wood furniture in need of restoration to bring it here. The owners are extremely nice people, who I would trust with any restoration job. I am very glad I found this c...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I used Frankenstein Furniture to restore a two drawer antique cherry chest which had been spray painted brown and a heavily worn antique play table, repair the base of an antique round table and reassemble an antique dining room chair, which was in three pieces. They previously restored an antique water damaged dining room table for me.

Very nice people the service was great. They picked up my loveseat on a Friday I had it back the following Monday. Everything was explained to me as to how it was fixed after it was returned. I will definitely recommend this company to anyone needing furniture repaired.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The arm of my loveseat was broken by someone sitting on it. The inside broke down but the fabric was not torn so just the inside was needing repaired.

I had two antique chairs that needed to be tightened and one antique table that needed to have a side panel reattached. Frankenstein Furniture did a great job bringing these antiques back to life. Their services are by appointment only so you need to “apply” and then, if they accept the work, you work with them on pick up drop off and delivery. They had great communication and were delightful to w...
