The Icing On The Cake

As it is the first thing you see, the finish on a piece of furniture is in many ways like the icing on a cake. The Restoration Studio offers an endless array of finish choices. Whether a piece is stained or painted can totally change its personality and determine how and where it may be utilized in your home.


Painted Lacquer Finishes - Nobody Offers You More

Painted finishes have always been popular, and at The Restoration Studio we offer far more than just a painted finish....we take painted finishes to a whole new level of quality!

We custom blend all our own lacquer paints at The Studio, nobody else specializes in custom solid color painted lacquers like we do.

You dream up the color - we'll make your vision a reality

You choose...... Classic (Solid color, no antiquing), Antiqued(light to medium distressing), or Primitive (Heavy authentic worn paint finish)

Choosing Your Color

We can custom mix most any paint color. We can work off a picture, but for more exacting matches we ask for a color chip from Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore.

Choosing A Sheen

We offer any sheen on our painted finishes. Matte, flat, satin and gloss. Low sheen finishes such as matte and flat are by far our most popular choices.

Glazing Or Distressing?

Our standard painted finish is one solid color, but you can choose to add distressing, antiquing, glaze or rubbed through edges in and degree or variation from subtle to primitive.

Stained Finishes - The Timeless Beauty Of Stained Wood

It's not difficult to understand why stained wood finishes have always been our customers most popular choice.  It's said that exposure to wooden furniture has real and measurable health benefits. The presence of wood has positive physiological and psychological benefits that mimic the effect of spending time outside in nature. The beauty of real wood makes us happy, and the nicer it looks, the happier we are !

Standard Or Custom

Furniture refinishing color options are only limited by the species of wood and your imagination.  You can choose from our color chart of standard stain finishes, match the original finish or custom color match another piece of furniture or cabinetry in your home or even a picture off the web.

Our Refinishing Process

We are often asked what our refinishing process is ?  Our standard process goes somewhat as follows:

⇒ Hardware is removed  ⇒ Piece is disassembled when possible  ⇒ Furniture is either hand stripped or in some cases stripped in our veneer safe flow over system ⇒ Repairs are performed as needed  ⇒  All pieces are sanded as needed  ⇒  All pieces are stained as needed  ⇒  All pieces are sprayed with 2 coats lacquer sanding sealer  ⇒  All pieces are lightly sanded ⇒  All pieces are sprayed with several coats of catalyzed lacquer  ⇒  All pieces are lightly sanded again ⇒ Touch up is done as needed  ⇒  All pieces are color tinted or shaded as needed  ⇒ All pieces are final coated in our spray booth with at least two more coats of catalyzed lacquer  ⇒ Hardware is cleaned or polished when needed  ⇒  Hardware is installed  ⇒ Furniture is assembled  ⇒  Final inspection before delivery or pick up.

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, right?

Choosing Your Color

We can reproduce the original finish, or custom match most any stain color. We can work off a picture, but for more exacting matches we ask for a color chip or sample.  Color selections can sometimes be limited based on the species of wood.

Choosing Your Sheen

Choose any sheen finish you desire. Matte, Flat, Medium, Gloss or High Polished

Distressing or Antiquing?

If you prefer, we can add distressing, glazing and antiquing to your finish.
