Furniture Restoration in Rhode Island

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lisa Glowacki - Rhode Island & Massachusetts

If you have a piece of furniture in need of restoration or you see a piece of furniture that you love but is in horrible condition don't be afraid to purchase it. Mark Faris does exceptional restoration at an affordable price. The quality of an older piece of furniture by far surpasses the particle board construction of a new piece of furniture. The cost even after restoration is still a fraction of what it would cost to buy new.

Below you will see before and after photos of a hundred plus year old table that Mark has recently restored over the past few days.

If you are looking to have piece restored you can reach Mark at (401) 624-6080.

I have a table that belonged to my great grandmother, then was used by my grandparents and 6 kids for years on end that I was handed down.  I'd love to get it redone.  Of course I can't be sending it up to Rhode Island for this, but am going to start looking around to see if I can find someone to do it for me.  I don't think it's a project that I want to tackle myself.

Hi Tammy - You could always come visit us in Rhode Island and bring that table with you. Stay a few days and bring it back. lol But really if you can find a good furniture restorer it is well worth the investment. However I would really love to see you visit Rhode Island and get to meet you. Hey you never know maybe I will some day be in your part of the country.

If you opt for staining, take a natural bristle brush and apply the stain. A natural bristle brush is best option for staining.
