When Refinishing Might Not Work for You
As furniture refinishing specialists, it may seem surprising that we at Livingston Cabinetry, would suggest instances where refinishing might not work for you but the reality is that if you are looking to revamp a piece of vintage furniture for your living room or kitchen then you need to consider the following two questions closely:
Has the piece been, painted?
As a simple rule of thumb, if the answer to this question is yes then you need to proceed with caution. The reason for this is because if a chair, cabinet or wooden table has been painted in the past then there’s usually a reason for this. In most cases, a paint job is often hiding something more serious such as stains, burns or scratches. So, as a general rule we at Livingston Cabinetry recommend that our clients purchase and spend time refinishing furniture that has been varnished rather than painted. It usually means less nasty surprises.
Is Re-Gluing Necessary?
This question isn’t just important in terms of refinishing, it is also a crucial query that any homeowner should consider closely before even purchasing a used piece of furniture. A quick and effective way of establishing if the chest of drawers, cabinet or bedroom dresser needs to be re-glued is by trying the so-called ‘rickety test’. This means rocking the chest of drawers back and forth to see how much, if any, swaying takes place.
