Rancho Mirage Furniture Repair by Museum Quality Restoration Services

Rancho Mirage furniture repair of dining chairs, with custom water-spotted lacquer finish. Chair frames were cracked at the rear joints, and some at front leg joints.  Dings, splits and dents had to be repaired, filled, smoothed and touched up. Here is the transcript of the review of Museum Quality Restoration Services written by this satisfied client:

“Mark, thank you for the professional touch up on the finishes of my six dining rm chairs. Each chair had a variety of scrapes/nicks on the legs/backs. I realize such a multi step lacquer finish is most difficult to restore. You did a great job.  They look brand new.  I know it took days as each layer needs to dry before the next can be applied. Plus the damage was random, different on each chair. Appreciate your patience. You have an unique skill.  Feel free to use me as a reference”  –  Best regards, Roy Jenks, Rancho Mirage, CA.

Mark also restored a coffee table for the same client.  After taking delivery of the finished work the client wrote this kind letter of appreciation:

“Mark Fry of Museum Quality Restoration Services restored two pieces of furniture for me. Mark is an artist. He transformed my beloved old chest and coffee table into true works of art. read more

June 17, 2015

We had the pleasure of working with Mark Fry at Museum Quality Restoration Services. We had asked him and his team to help recondition and refinish two large mid-century modern end tables that had been exposed to significant sunlight for over 40 years. They had had a faux finish that had seen better days, and we asked Mark to come up with an idea for both the restoration of the pieces and the nature of the finish consistent with a color palette that synchronized with that of the mid-century house that was also being renovated.  read more
