Furniture Refinishing Basics For The Average Person


One of the most common means of furniture restoration is furniture refinishing. Refinishing furniture can breathe new life into pianos, tables, chairs, cabinets, bookcases, jewelry boxes and other items that have started to look a little bit worn.

With any furniture restoration project - and furniture refinishing is no exception - there are a few things to consider. First, you want to think about whether or not you can do it yourself. You may be thinking, "Why couldn't I tackle furniture refinishing myself? All it takes is a few hours, some sandpaper and new stain." While in many cases this is true, some furniture restoration should be left to the pros.

For example, piano refinishing isn't the same as refinishing a jewelry box. Many large pieces - pianos, armoires - are far easier for professionals to restore and refinish. Another furniture restoration project that may be better suited for a professional is refinishing chairs. You may find that, for these projects, hiring a professional will cost less and take less time than if you were to do the projects yourself.

Another professional who you may want to consult before taking on a furniture restoration project is an antiques appraiser. While refinishing furniture you bought new can help give the piece more character or even help you to sell it for a profit at a yard sale, there are rare and collectible pieces of furniture that will lose value if they are refinished. When you've bought an antique dining room table, coffee table or cabinet, furniture refinishing could lower the value of the piece and you may want to look into a thorough professional cleaning instead.

If you are only looking at refinishing furniture that is newer or that has sentimental value, you may choose not to consult with a professional. In that case, it's often best to get right into the project on your own.

To start your furniture-refinishing project, it's often best to find a spot that won't be noticed as a test site. In this spot - low on the back of the piece or on the bottom - you'll want to start the furniture refinishing by removing a small portion of the current finish. Doing so will let you see what you're up against and how hard will it be to remove the current finish from the furniture.

The answer to that question will vary some. Simple surfaces like a table will be easier to refinish than a cabinet with intricate corner work. Using a furniture stripper and a scraper will make it easier to remove a painted or varnished finish than merely using sandpaper. Once you've determined how to best remove the old finish from the furniture, the next step is to work outdoors (when possible) to remove the old varnish and paint.

Furniture refinishing, however, is not just about removing the old finish. Refinishing furniture requires stripping the old finish and then preparing the surface for a new finish by sanding the surface and wiping down the sawdust that sanding stirred up. Only after the surface has been prepared can you start the final step in this furniture restoration project: applying the new finish.

Refinishing the furniture, therefore, means knowing what the new finish will be. For some, the goal of refinishing furniture is to strip off color, get back to the natural wood and apply a clear finish that shows off the item's natural beauty. For others, furniture refinishing is a matter of taking the wood to a darker shade - staining pine so that it takes on the color of cherry or mahogany wood.

Still others look at furniture refinishing as a chance to bring color to their table, desk, bookshelf or bureau. When refinishing furniture, many are likely to choose a colored stain followed with a topcoat of varnish for sheen. Another common choice people, who are looking for color, make is to select paint that matches the room or provides the contrast they are looking to achieve in their room.

Furniture restoration, after all, is a personal choice. Refinishing furniture gives you a chance to create a new look without going out and buying something new. For those inclined to take on little projects on their own, refinishing furniture can be a great way to spend a weekend - and have something to show for their time, for years to come.

    This post is about packaging. The product is great. I now have enough plastic bubble wrap to almost fill the garden. Ridiculous amount of plastic. What am I supposed to do with it all? When will you switch over to shredded paper or other protective forms of packaging? I want to make another purchase but won't until you can assure me it won't be sent similarly packaged. Thank you.

    Great quality, even better in person than in the pictures. Shipping was easy and they are well wrapped in the boxes so as to not arrive with any damage. These chairs are adorable!!

    Chuffed with this. Much sturdier than I expected and pretty simple to put together. Took me less than an hour on my own.

    Good storage box for those outside cushions. The trouble is we keep buying more cushions to fill the box.

    Great Product easy to put together, the compartments are a little small and larger shoe sizes are a struggle to get in, but other than that it looks great in the living room.

    Easy to assemble and very solid bench. Shaped for comfort and identical to one in John Lewis at over double the price. Bought two which weirdly were delivered same day but a few hours apart.

    Had to get a new one sent to me because the first ones screw holes were misaligned and I could not put it together but the second one was good. May want to apply another clear coat and the color is already fading from the weather.

    I needed 8 but ordered four of these chairs in grey just to check the quality. I am very pleased with the overall look and quality. They are light but sturdy. I paired them with an expensive teak table to get in upscale French ambiance. It works.

    Love, love, love this bench. It's exactly what I wanted for the courtyard. The care instructions recommended using wax to maintain the wood and suggested not to let bird droppings or leaves sit on it for any length of time which may be more fuss than some people are willing to give their outdoor furniture but wooden outdoor furniture requires extra TLC. If that's too much then let me say it would look beautiful indoors as well.

    Overall we found it much more difficult than others to put it together which we would have forgiven because they "look" great but within 2 weeks of owning it we've had one large piece chip off and two deep cracks emerge within the body of the chair. The overall quality is poor and we do not recommend this chair to anyone.
