I bought an antique chair that was in bad shape  and needed extensive work, cosmetically and structurally.  I took it to this store and was greeted by the owner who was very pleasant and assured me that the chair could be brought back to it's original condition.  I was given an estimate and decided to leave it there for repair.  I picked it up within the estimated amount of time provided and was v...

I sent a picture to them and they said it would be over $1,000 to have it refinished. I didn’t have the work done because their suggested work would be too extensive and I realized I just needed a mechanical fix. I didn’t get in touch with them to tell them that all I wanted done was repairing the recliner. Their communication was excellent though.

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.

Haridi accomplished all work on time, within budget and was flexible on when we picked the footlocker back up.  When we dropped the footlocker off, he walked us through all steps of the process and answered all our questions - he was very sensitive to the fact that this piece is a treasured family heirloom and took care of it from start to finish.  When we picked up the footlocker, Haridi had kept...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I have a family heirloom (WWI era footlocker that belonged to my great-grandfather) that was in serious need of restoration.  I searched through Angie's List for a reputable antique furniture restorer and came across Haridi's company.  Haridi did exactly what I asked and knocked it out of the park.  He refurbished the entire outside of the footlocker, including all hardware (removing all rust and repainting) and used the original screws to reattach the hardware.  He also did a terrific job protecting the lid of the footlocker, which had some writing on it (he then protected the writing by applying several coats of sealer).

We take pride in our work and understand the importance of working with often delicate family heirlooms. We hope to see the footlocker be passed through the family time and time again. Please let us know if you ever have any questions.

It and scheduling were both fine.  While he was nice and the price was good, the job was OK, not great. The refinishing could have been deeper. When he delivered the beds there was a scratch on the one of the headboards.  He indicated he would come out to fix this.  I called him back a couple of times and he insisted the scratch was on our end, not his and indicated he was very busy.  I will proba...

Haridi spent time with us when we dropped the table off talking about the wood and describing the process for repairing and refinishing it.  They do everything by hand and take pride in their work.  He even sanded some of the finish off so he could show us some different stain color options and helped us decide on the best one.  He said to expect it to take 8 weeks but it was done in about three w...

They are very good but very expensive but they are very time consuming with their work. They are meticulous and they know what they are doing. This place is for much nicer furniture versus a piece of furniture from Ikea.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I purchased the big deal for $50 for $150 toward your next Furniture Refinishing. They re-upholstered two chairs. They re-finished a large dining room table that seated 10 people so I did have to pay additional. They also polished and glued to an old gate leg antique table for me. They made it possible for me to use it again.
