It’s extremely important to have your antique furniture and art restoration restored properly!
If not, you run the risk of forever devaluing the piece! Antique furniture and art restoration should be performed by a professional skilled in this area.
… I cannot tell you this enough! – whether it’s a wonderful oil painting or a piece of heirloom furniture.
This could mean everything to it’s accessed value – do it right!
If you happen to own a truly valuable and rare antique, please DO NOT try to refinish or restore it yourself. As a matter of fact, collectors generally like their antiques in a “raw” state. In other words – not cleaned or tampered with at all!
We will be adding a lot of information having to do with the cleaning & restoring of all kinds of other antiques, art, and vintage collectibles as we go along. These will benefit the do-it-yourselfers who would like to learn how to properly care for their older pieces, or use them in a modern setting with a flair of “vintage”. If you have an antique piece that isn’t worthy of a place in the Antiques Road Show, my belief is to go ahead and and work on it yourself. Do take care to perform whatever steps properly, but don’t hesitate to give it a shot yourself. It’s fun and very rewarding.
