Seattle/Bellevue Furniture Restoration & Refinishing
Queen Anne Upholstery and Refinishing specializes in custom repairs, restoration, and refinishing. We can add new life to your furniture with our professional craftsmanship. What is the difference between furniture restoration and furniture refinishing? It is important to know this when your furniture needs professional attention.
Furniture restoration is a light cleaning of the furniture and can involve simple cosmetic repairs. Antique furniture that is being restored will generally just need small cosmetic repairs that don’t take away from the appearance.
Furniture refinishing is a process that involves stripping the furniture piece from its current finish. The finish will be completely removed, and a new finish will be applied. Furniture refinishing is a more in-depth process than a furniture restoration. You should always hire a professional furniture refinisher and you should always be very specific with your goals, so you don’t just get a simple restoration.
Queen Anne Upholstery and Refinishing has a detailed refinishing process. Our refinishing process includes:

Why Refinish Your Furniture?
There are two main functions that furniture finish has. One is to protect the wood of the furniture, and the second is to enhance and bring out the beauty and appearance of the furniture. If you don’t have the protection of the finish for the furniture, then the wood surface will become dull and grayish in appearance. Dirt and soil will start to penetrate below the surface, which will never come out without the finish. You may start to notice rings or dark spots on the furniture. This is a sign that your furniture needs to be refinished. Walnut, cherry, and mahogany woods can show the grain contrasts with a good refinishing applied.
Is Refinishing Worth the Cost?
Queen Anne Upholstery and Refinishing is always asked if refinishing is worth the cost. The cost may cost a bit more than purchasing lower cost furniture, however, the quality will not be the same. By having quality furniture refinished, it can extend the life of the furniture up to thirty years or longer, depending on the furniture.
