Restored Antique Armoire

    Restoration of Antique Armoire [VIDEO]

    This Armoire (Wardrobe) arrived in pieces from a lady who almost gave it up as a lost cause, the back was missing and many of the carvings and fine molded edges were broken off or damaged.  Read what the client says in her letter to me after she receives her restored Armoire:

    “Dear Mark,

    I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how thrilled we are with the restoration of our armoire.  As I stated to you, my husband was wanting me to part with it and after refusing he remembered what a great job you did on our previous piece that you restored.  So I called you and handed over my beautiful armoire that certainly was not so beautiful at that time.

    Fast forward a few weeks and we are amazed at the transformation.  You restored life to our armoire, and we could not be happier.  Your attention to detail is amazing.  The carvings that were replaced by you cannot be differentiated from the original carvings and the wonderful shade of the piece is much more beautiful and rich than the original shade.

    In closing, I just want to say that we are so glad we chose you to work on our piece.  We will certainly turn to you in the future for any restorations or repairs that we may need on any one of our cherished pieces.  Thank you for your caring touch and your services.

    Thank you again,
    Gwen Vance”
