Take a look around your home or office and see what types of wood furniture you have. Take a closer look and see if you are happy with how the wood looks. Are there small nicks and scrapes? Are there spots of discoloration or maybe you are tired of the finish? If you look at the wood and decide that you maybe want to replace it you should take a look into having the furniture refinished instead. Furniture refinishing is a cheaper option than replacing it and can have it looking fresh and new.
L.W. Winslow Painting Inc has prepared a list of benefits to refinishing wooden furniture:
Find a Trusted Furniture Refinishing Company: Look for a trustworthy company like L.W. Winslow Painting Inc that you can hire to have the furniture refinished. Be sure to check into the company and ask if they have insurance and are licensed in the state they are working. This keeps the thought that you might get scammed out of mind. If the company has licensing and insurance it means that they took the necessary steps to show the state that they are prepared and experienced enough to do the work they say they are going to do.
Choose the furniture pieces that you want to have finished: This could be any wood piece that has seen better days. Usually the wood looks dull and discolored. As long as the piece is holding together well it is worth having a new finish applied. Make sure that the piece is actually wood and not a piece of particle board that is covered with laminate.
Furniture Refinishing Process: The furniture refinishing company will come out and look at the piece and determine if it can have a finish added. We will go over the process and have you choose a color coating. We then take the furniture piece and sand it down to get rid of the original finish. We will then wipe it clean before we apply the color finish you want which is usually a type of stain that adds some color but keeps the look of the natural wood. After the color is added to the wood piece we will add a clear lacquer to help protect the wood.
