Repair of Solid Cherry Wood Dining Table Damaged in Shipping

This small, solid cherry wood dining table was sold to the customer for $2,000. During shipping and delivery the bottom of the base sustained two dents. One the size of a quarter, the other the size of a nickel. The wood was dented and the wood fibers were crushed. The company that sold the customer this table contacted me to restore this damage for the customer. This is one of the many repairs that I perform.

First, I filled in the damage area with a filler that will not shrink and is actually harder than the actual wood. I then carefully sanded it. The final outcome is all dependent on the initial preparation. Next, I mixed a stain on site, stained it and re-lacquered the damaged area. After fine tuning the area and applying a couple more coats of lacquer. The repair is complete. The customer was very happy accepting the brand new table that previously arrived damaged.

Antique Victorian Mahogany Setee Restoration

Our client purchased this antique Victorian mahogany with rosewood and mother-of-pearl inlay setee, shown below. at a consignment shop. The beauty, size and stability of the peace was noteworthy. Parris Restorations fully restored and reupholstered the setee with linen fabric and modern stainless nail heads. Our work enhanced the beauty of this peace and gave it a modern update while maintaining the original integrity of the piece. The client was thrilled because it’s difficult to find new furniture that is made with such high quality and workmanship at an affordable price.

The finish was worn in several places. There had been a poor attempt to refinish certain spots. In addition, the upholstery was badly worn.

Leather Sofa Reupholstered

Sometimes, a certain piece of furniture is so well-made and so prized that the idea of parting with it after many, many years of comfortable use is unthinkable! That was the case for one of our customers, the owner of the fine leather sofa shown below. The beautifully crafted piece had wear and damage that needed to be remedied. The cost of a suitable quality replacement far outweighed the cost of reupholstery in this case. Our task was to stay as true to the original color and tufting as was possible. The result of our work is shown below.
