Antique Furniture Refinishing Services
Furniture restorers cannot handle antique furniture like any modern piece. The hand-crafted nature of older pieces requires a keen eye, a delicate hand, and a large amount of patience. Rest assured, we approach each assignment with the greatest care, ensuring your furniture only improves under our watch.
So many of us get lured in by retro wood furniture at Los Angeles's summer garage sales or have inherited a piece or two from family members. But they don't always look just the way we want from the start. If the wood is stained, chipped, damaged in some other way, or has just lost its luster, you may want to consider refinishing the wood.
Wood restoration isn't the simplest task, but at D C Keeton Home Improvements we have lengthy experience in the industry, and skills that have been honed over many projects. Instead of tossing that antique in favor of a newer option, give us a call and we'll let you know how we can help.
Restoring More than Just Tables and Chairs
When homeowners hear about our restoration and refinishing services, they think of our team handling antique sofas, chairs, and tables. While we definitely refinish many items such as those, we also refinish other things too.
When homeowners want to remodel their kitchen, one of their first executive orders is to do away with the kitchen cabinets. While some cabinets may be worth replacing, there are also some households with the most wonderful hardwood cabinetry. In instances such as those, there is no more fashionable and cost-effective choice than to refinish your existing cabinetry.
Our skilled contractors bring out the best in long-neglected cabinets, hardwood stair railings, and other pieces. We will strip the old and battered finish without compromising the wood underneath and make sure to clean the surfaces with the appropriate minerals prior to refinishing. What's more, we will work with you to determine the most appropriate finish for the refinishing process, ensuring full customization and customer satisfaction.
The Refinishing Process
Wood refinishing is a complex and labor-intensive task that requires precision and skill. At our company, all our tradespeople are extensively trained in the art. We perform a variety of refurbishments for wooden furniture. Our stain colors come by the dozens, and the quality of our products is second to none. We offer several different refinishing processes, which include:
Recondition and Refinish
This service is a budget-friendly solution for clients who are happy with the existing finish on their furniture. Our professionals won't remove the existing finish, we'll simply touch it up and take away the scuffs, scratches, and gouges that have taken their toll over the years.
Paint and Refinish
Give your old dressers and aged bookshelves a dramatic new look with a change of color and finish. Our staff will clean, sand, paint, and seal your wood for a showroom-ready result. Many of our clients like to mix and match with this service. For instance, we can stain the top of a table and paint its base for a two-toned look that's sure to impress.
Strip and Refinish
No two pieces of furniture are alike, but our stripping and refinishing process is similar from job to job. It's a tried and true science that involves:
- Removing old finish
- Cleaning with mineral spirits
- Sanding smooth
At this point, we'll be working with a blank canvas. If you'd like your furniture to be rejuvenated back to how it would have looked when first purchased, next we will apply a stain. It's easy to match the shade of wood or make it a little darker and more impressive.
If you would prefer to have your furniture painted, now is the time to do that.
After staining or painting, we'll apply a sealant and allow it to dry. Furniture should be left to dry in a well-ventilated area for 24 hours. Even if it feels dry to the touch, you don't want to put an object down on the surface or sit on it and see an imprint of your coffee mug or jeans.

Wood Furniture Restoration—Get a Quote Today
We always provide our customers with individualized quotes based on the size and scope of their restoration projects. We invite you to contact us by phone and discuss your needs with one of our representatives. We'll calculate an estimate for you based on the dimensions of the furniture, as well as the complexity of the work at hand.
By the way, you'll appreciate the honesty of our tradespeople. In some cases, our technicians may recommend against refinishing. Sometimes, our clients bring in wooden furniture of poor quality. Paint often masks a plethora of wood damage, like water stains or burns. In situations like these, the cost of refinishing may be disproportionate to the value of the finished piece. In other, rarer cases involving genuine antiques, refinishing can actually depreciate your furniture's value. Of course, the decision is ultimately up to you—we're not here to sway you either way. We simply believe that a professional consultation should inform you of all your options. You can depend on our staff to give you the candid truth about the condition of your items pre-service and provide you with an accurate idea of what it will look like post-service.
Before you buy new furniture, discover our competitive rates obligation-free. Our quotes are complimentary, so you won't be roped into any commitments by giving us a call. Once we've examined the extent of the work at hand, we'll also provide you with our projected time estimate for the project. That way, you can plan the pick-up of your item accordingly.
Furniture Refinishing: Stain Color Matching
Are you looking to match some misfit pieces of furniture into a unified tone? No problem. Over the years, we've assembled an impressive collection of specialty stains, coatings, glazes, and more. We also partner with reputable suppliers to continually add to our stock with new colors and shades of wood stains.
Bring in a photo or a sample of the color you're after, and we'll find the perfect match for you. It's as simple as that.
Safe Wood Stripping and Sanding
We perform our wood stripping services by hand—not by dipping— to ensure that no harm is done to your furniture. Our careful process will not damage glued joints or fragile trims. Plus, we like to sand between coats to give your furniture the most lasting finish possible. In our minds, the secret to our success is not a secret at all. We go the extra mile. We perform the additional time-consuming tasks to reap the best results. Not only will your prized furniture be safe in our hands, but it will leave our shop in better condition than before.
Wood Polishing Service
Maybe your furniture is in decent shape but could use a touch-up. Polishing is a quick and inexpensive way to revive a faded wooden surface. Plus, our refinishing experts have the tools to perform polishing services on-site. Minor dings and dents will virtually disappear thanks to our sophisticated equipment and skilled, professional touch.
On-Site Wood Refinishing
Cabinetry and flooring contribute to your indoor aesthetic as few other items can. Outdated cabinets and worn, damaged hardwood can take a toll on your interior look. Unlike other furnishings, such as tables and chairs, you can't bring cabinetry and flooring into a restoration shop. Fortunately, our team can bring all the high-end resources from our shop straight to your doorstep. We proudly offer on-site wood refinishing for flooring, cabinetry, and other wood surfaces that can't be transported easily.
Wood Furniture Refinishing and Remodeling
Many people know us for our remodeling work, for which we've received awards and accolades from Angie's List and Houzz. What they don't know is that during that whole time, we've been refinishing wood furniture alongside our remodeling projects. After all, isn't furniture an essential part of your home? Wouldn't you want it to match your recently remodeled basement, bedroom, or kitchen?
Yes, you would. Give your furniture the makeover it needs to match. Contact us today to get a quote on wood furniture refinishing.

Quality for The Right Price
In other eras, furniture tended to be made better than it is today. You may have received your furniture for $50 at a yard sale, or for free from a relative. For the level of workmanship that went into that, you have really come out ahead.
To refinish this furniture, you'll be paying $40-$60 per hour of work, but generally at D C Keeton Home Improvements it'll instead be a flat rate. To strip and refinish a basic dining room chair, budget for $125-$200. For a larger piece of furniture such as dresser think more like $300-$475.
When you consider large chain stores from across seas that sell furniture in flat packed boxes, to be assembled at home, maybe those options are cheaper. But, take a look instead at the companies that will sell you something of similar style and quality.
The lower end chains will sell you a stock chair for $125 plus tax or a dresser for $1,000 while custom wood furniture businesses price chairs at $250 minimum and dressers at $2,000 and skyrocket from there.
The higher end stores may offer quality, but you can get that same quality and a unique piece of furniture by refinishing what you already have.
