FURNITURE REPAIRS AND POLISHING MELBOURNE

 

ANTIQUE RESTORATION AND MODERN FURNITURE REPAIRS

Paul Sheppard Furniture Restoration provides a specialist and genuine timber furniture repair and restoration service at his workshop based in the eastern suburbs, Melbourne.

ANTIQUE & ART DECO FURNITURE

Badly deteriorated antique furniture is restored using traditional methods of hand stripping off the original french polish, applying either a water or oil colour stain, hand french polishing and a wax finish.  Alternatively, if the original french polish still maintains stability, a safe cleaning technique is used to preserve and maintain the surface patination on antique furniture.

RETRO, DANISH & MODERN FURNITURE

Chiswell, Fleur and Danish Deluxe Furniture furniture has gained an appreciation in today's modern decorating style.  A safe restoration process is undertaken of the surface finish with either a lacquer or oil based product used to provide the customer with an easy to maintain surface finish.

Original modern surface finishes are generally lacquer based in composition and will differ to the restoration process used in antique furniture.
