I spent 5 years in college as an art major, learning painting and printmaking which lead me to doing Murals and Faux finishing in the the DC metro are and around the country for large corporations. this lead to painting furniture and which lead me into restoring furniture and classes to conservation and preservation of art and antiques. Next I studied Water Gilding which lead me into restoring Hundreds of antique frames and gilding projects.
I love using my many talents and serving the public with them, this is art to me and my 3rd love after my Lord and my Family.
We are an established conservation and restoration company. With thousands of happy and returning customers in the Washington DC metro area. Our costumes are encouraged to be a part of the process or either restoring or refinishing of there valued furniture and antiques by dropping by the shop and giving their views what it is they would like to see their prized possessions look like.
We only use the best materials and the correct material for the piece at hand and you can be assured that when you receive your furniture back you will get many years of quality use for each piece.
