What is antique painted furniture restoration?

Antique painted furniture restoration involves the process of restoring and preserving antique furniture with painted finishes. This process aims to maintain or enhance the furniture's historical and aesthetic value. Complex restorations or valuable pieces require professional expertise to avoid causing further damage.

Why should I restore my antique painted furniture?

Restoring antique painted furniture helps preserve its original beauty, historical significance, and monetary value. It can also ensure the furniture's longevity and usability for future generations. The restoration process typically involves cleaning, removing old paint, repairing structural damage, filling holes or gaps, sanding, repainting, and applying a protective finish. Each step requires careful attention to detail and expertise.

Can the original paint be preserved during restoration?

If the original paint is in good condition, our skilled restorers can often preserve it by cleaning, stabilising, and applying a protective clear coat. However, severely damaged or deteriorated paint may require complete removal and repainting, choosing a paint that matches the era and style of the antique furniture, researching historical colour schemes and finishes to ensure authenticity, and using high-quality, durable paints that will provide a long-lasting finish.
