A client called and asked us if we could perform front door refinishing in Seattle for them. The client told us that there was sun damage located from the bottom of the door handle and down at an angle along with the same sun damage on the right side of the front door. We let the client know that we could come take a look at the front door, so we could see the sun damages in person and provide them with an accurate estimate.
The team arrived at the residence and inspected the door that needed the furniture refinishing. We let the client know that it is very common for entry doors to receive a lot of damage from the elements, but we could have the door refinishing done at an affordable price and quickly, too. The client agreed and returned the following morning to start the project.
The door refinishing process was about to begin.
We arrived promptly on time and removed the hinge pins, so we could remove the door. We safely removed the door, then we laid the door on sawhorses. We secured the opening, so nothing could get into the client’s home. We also set up a tenting area, so we could safely work on the door and to keep the elements ou
t. We did this so that we could add the spray finish as well. We removed the hardware from the door, then we masked the area. Our team then sanded down the door, then we applied the first coat of polyurethane. After that the first coat dried we added a second coat. We installed a new brass plate and the other necessary hardware when the second coat had dried, then our team hung the door.
We worked non-stop until we had the door refinishing done for our client. When we had the door back up, the client took a look and was very happy with the way the furniture refinishing project turned out. The client told us that the door looked brand new again. The client also said that we had done an excellent job, and so quickly while being right on budget. We were able to save the door and save the client’s money with our door refinishing services. We let them know that they should give us a call if they needed any other doors or furniture restored.
A lady from Sammamish, Washington was wanting to update the original fabric of a tufted sofa and chair to a high quality leather from the Kravet “Portfolio Collection.” She contacted Queen Anne Upholstery & Refinishing as one of her closest friends had used our services in the past and had nothing but good things to say about how we upholstered her sofa. She wanted us to come to her home to pick up the sofa and chair and to give her an estimate. We arrived at her home and she showed us the leather that she wanted from the Kravet “Portfolio Collection,” and we gave her an estimate along with a date that we would complete the sofa reupholstery in Seattle at our facility.
The Sofa Upholstery Project Began
When we got the pieces back to our shop we started by taking the current fabric off, so we could get it ready for the upholstering. We also removed the skirt on both pieces to give the pieces a more updated look. The frame on the couch needed to be re-glued, which the chair refinishing section of our shop did. They also did a touch up on the wood finish to give the pieces a fully refreshed look. We also retied the seat springs, and we replaced all the foam padding with “ultra-cell” foam and poly wrap. Once these things were completed, we added the new high quality leather that the customer requested. Our team worked each and every day on the sofa and chair until we were able to have the upholstery and refinishing work completed.
We called the customer to let her know that we were finished, and to schedule a day and time to deliver her pieces. The customer was so anxious to have the pieces back in her home she wanted us to deliver them the following afternoon, which we did. When we first brought the sofa in the customer was in awe, then we brought the chair in and she showed us where she wanted them placed. She was really amazed at the difference. The result was a very happy client and a beautifully restored custom sofa and chair set that she could be proud of. She thanked us for doing an amazing job with the sofa upholstery for her and she was overjoyed with the end result – a tasteful and luxurious new sofa and chair set!
Queen Anne Upholstery and Refinishing was contacted by a woman who needed a complicated furniture repair in Seattle, and who was going through a huge ordeal because one of her dresser drawers was stolen. The woman had went out of town and her neighbor had been keeping watch over the house while she was on vacation. When she got back from her vacation her neighbor told her that multiple pieces were stolen. The drawer that had contained all the woman’s jewelry was taken. The woman called us to try to replicate what was missing.
The Antique Furniture Restoration in Seattle Required Skill and Care
We let the woman know that we are the furniture refinishing experts and Tom, our artesian would do everything that he could to replicate the drawer. It took a great deal of craftsmanship and artistry to come up with a drawer to match what existed, but Tom came up with a design without any pictures of what the drawer looked like originally. Tom did some drawings to show the customer what the drawer would look like, and the customer was highly impressed that he could do this type of work without even seeing the drawer. The drawer was completed and it was identical to the drawer that was stolen. It is now a museum quality piece that the customer was very happy with. The customer was very impressed with the furniture replication. We were also able to help her with some of the insurance claims, so she wouldn’t have to worry about the payment to us.

He went around to several furniture stores and tried sitting in numerous chairs that looked like his, but none of them matched up to his favorite armchair.

This dining set has been handed down through several generations, and was finally brought to us for a complete overhaul. We were tasked with stripping the chairs completely and building them back up to appear new. The owners hoped to be able to continue the tradition of handing them down as functional pieces that would exude their rightful beauty and elegance. Our team stripped off the old materials and the fading finish. They proceeded to sand the around the detailing with extreme care to preserve the original woodworking while still allowing the application of a new finish to the frame.
