FAQs

Bill,

I can’t get over how superb a job you did with the repairs and restoration on my headboard and footboard. I’m so tickled pink!

It’s fabulous and I love how the color turned out. It does make it look old and antique, even tho it is from the 1940’s. I can’t wait for you to do my dresser in March-April. It will be worth every penny!

Thank you for such a fabulous job!

Warm regards,
Holly
