We restore antiques from any period, in any state of disrepair

and turn them into beautifully finished pieces of furniture that you’ll be proud to display. Your 100 years old heirloom hutch is missing a door? We honor it’s history by using our salvaged antique lumber to build the replacement.

For very old pieces with original finishes, we’ll deep clean the surfaces and French Polish in lieu of refinishing. The technique of French polishing with shellac resin was refined in France during the18th century and was considered the highest quality wood finish for fine furniture and musical instruments such as pianos and guitars.

See how we restored this Empire sideboard (1830) from the The Latimer House Museum--the official home to the local Historical Society since 1963 in downtown Wilmington, NC.
