We were called in by a homeowner who had damaged a piece of furniture that was very special to him, a £2000 worth of Solid Oak Furniture. An absolutely gorgeous piece of furniture that has unfortunately had diffuser oil spilt over the centre of the table. The damage had occurred in the centre of the table and was very deeply ingrained because somebody else has tried to carry out a repair and failed.
What We Did
Once we arrived on site and inspected the damage we quickly realized that the table was not going to be able to be repaired through the traditional methods due to the previous repair that had failed. However, all of our technicians are multi-skilled tradesmen who possess a variety of skills which meant we could offer an alternative solution. We informed our client that we could strip the tables’ exterior surface and then re-varnish it with a colour of their choice.
The client agreed and was excited to see their oak table brought back to life in a different colour. We started off by sanding the exterior of the table back to the bare wood, we built the surface back up with various different kind of varnished layers. Once we reached the original surface level we coated the table with the final colour that our client requested.
Our client was over the moon with the repair as they much preferred the new colour of their Oak Furniture (table) and our restoration had saved them over £2000 on buying a new table. The final result was amazing, we don’t often get asked to do resurfacing of hard surfaces but the final result is truly remarkable. This technique allows us to completely change the colour of a hard surface whilst keeping the natural properties of the material intact.
The client was so thrilled with the repair they even left us with a stand out review on LinkedIn.
