For the longest time it sat in my living room being supported a crock and books. After much research-asking around & internet- I found Andy’s web site. I surfed every part of his web site, looking at every pages of the before and after shots and the testimonials. Impressed with what I saw, I placed a call to him to discuss my problem. I was impressed with his honesty and brought the cabinet in. After discussing the options & asking a few more questions we decided not only to get the piece fixed but to refinish it as well. The elements of age had taken its toll on some of the parts. Even after making the decision I still hoped I had made the right choice. I was a little shocked at the quote but I was comparing it to what other’s had paid to get furniture restored.
When we pick up the china cabinet we were speechless at what we were looking at. It was beautiful and flawless. It was better than what I pictured and all my doubt went out the window. The finish Andy chose allowed the natural wood grain to come out. Even a trained eye cannot tell where the damage was done. The front and back legs you see nothing but the wood grain. He also repaired a couple of spots where the wood had been chipped off on the molding and on the top edge. The cabinet is as sturdy as a brand new piece of furniture.
We are so impressed with the workmanship we see in the finished product. I emailed the before and after pictures to my mother and father. They couldn’t believe it. They are tough people to please, so when they are impressed with what they see you know it’s a job well done. I can’t say enough how beautiful and flawless this piece is. My friends & family have commented on how beautiful it looks. It’s a conversational piece whenever we get company. And of course it looks more beautiful with my depression glass in it.
I would recommend Andy to anyone who cares about the quality, time, and effort put into a project. He puts as much care into something as if it were his own. We got what we paid for and that’s a good thing. I couldn’t be more impressed or happy with the decision I made. Andy, many people know how happy I am with your workmanship. Even those that don’t have any furniture that needs refinishing. Thank you….
