I have a wooden desk from the late 50' early 1960's. It was an old government office work desk. Not an executive ornate just nice office desk.

I purchased fabric and took my footstool with broken legs to be restored. They did an incredible job, I needed to pay more over the big-deal price for the completed work, but the footstool was transformed from a 100 year old torn and tattered piece--to a high end piece of furniture that will last another 100 years!! I was so happy to have a piece of my family history restored.

I made the date of service up and overall rating up --your form forces reviewers to do this even though work has not been done.   This company did not perform service. It would be nice if they would contact me. Lynda@webstergroupinc.com

It was fine. He talked me into refinishing, which of course, was much more expensive. It was nice. He did a good job. But, he tried to tell me that this was the right thing to do for these kinds of chairs. The more I looked at it and thought about it, for an old kitchen chair like this, that wasn't the right thing. It's not particularly valuable wood. Either he didn't know what he was talking abou...

They were F absolutely. I would give them an F all the way around. Their prices are exorbitant. They were going to charge me $900 to have a chair reupholstered. I asked if they had anymore reasonable options for any of their work and they didn't even reply. I don't even think they belong on Angie's List. They are a mess. They didn't even come out. I called them on the phone. They asked me to send ...

Sorry to hear about your experience. Unfortunately, with the time and resources it takes to do work by hand sometimes it is not cost effective to opt for restoration. I hope you had no problem obtaining a refund. Please let us know if you have any questions.

We inherited a wooden table with two beautiful wood patterns separated by an intricate design.  It had been stripped, but had never been refinished.  We found Antiques & Furniture Restoration on Angie's List and took advantage of a coupon offer.  We brought the table in on a Saturday and the owner explained that he would strip it again to remove any dirt that had accumulated over time.  He would t...

I was told to allow for 6-8 weeks. It was completed with 2 weeks from drop off. They did a wonderful job and the rocker is very sturdy and looks beautiful. The workers were very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend them. Using the Angie's coupon I purchased certainly helped with the pricing.

Excellent!!!  It's amazing what Haridi can do!  The drawer has literally fallen apart, and he worked his magic to make it usable again.  He also replaced the wood in the bottom of it  (with a better quality and even stained it).  My antique dresser is now complete again!
