This end of the XIXth century chair was brought to me as it was wobbly from the joints being dried up and unglued, and the finish was looking dull. I revived it by regluing the joints that needed it, recoloured it partially, and finished it with a couple of shellac coats, as well as some waxing for a harden and shiny finish.

My customer was delighted when I brought it back to her. See her testimonial at the bottom of this page.

Testimonial from the customer:

Thank you so much for all the work that you have done on my almost 200 year old chair. It has been and still is, a very much loved piece and prior to your renovation was rather decrepit. It is now looking beautiful in my lounge instead of being hidden away in a bedroom. I am so lucky to have found someone that I liked on the first meeting and can trust.
