Overview

Old furniture, whether a treasured heirloom or a consignment shop find, is often better made than anything that can be bought today. Why let a damaged finish detract from a beautiful piece when you can expertly repair the finish or refinish it to good as new? This book and DVD set covers all the basics-how to evaluate the condition of a piece, how to repair and revive finishes to enhance their beauty while preserving their patina, and how to completely refinish a piece. Watch the DVD and then follow along in the book, and you'll be making old furniture look great in no time.
