Custom Furniture Repairs and Restoration


 

Decorating your living area is a huge part of the excitement that comes with having your own space. Even in private offices, the chosen furnishings allow people to set a theme for the room that fits their personal taste. The only downfall to investing in furniture is that naturally all pieces will begin to show signs of ware and tare over time. Whether the defect appears in the form of a rip, scratch, or chip attention is often immediately drawn to these areas. Do you round up your savings and throw out the faulty pieces or try and revive them back to their flawless image? Repairing or restoring furniture is a great alternative to a fresh, new look for a better price.

What specific furnishings make the cut for the mentioned services? With no limit to the shape and size, any piece that has upholstery can be restored. You have the freedom to customize the design and choose any colors or patterns that you please. Other then for damage purposes, Vintage and Victorian style decorating is currently in style and many used couches and chairs are lacking attractive fabric. We fancy the design and shape of the old styles, but often the patterns come far from fitting in to a home’s interior. Choose from neutral, floral, or vibrant colors to tie your room’s splendor together.

 

Aside from customizing upholstery, you can also repair old cabinets. Whether they come in the form of a dresser, armoire, or an inlaid cabinet a smooth finish can bring back a healthy appearance. Old cabinetry can resemble new pieces while saving you the time and expense of shopping for new furniture. When refinishing such items to restore their look you can choose from shades within the same color family or an entirely different color scheme. It is not only a great way to customize your cabinetry, but also a good route to use when looking to restore any antiques you may have.

Broken legs, arms, knobs, and drawers are common errors that occur with all types of furniture. Instead of disposing of items with flaws, why not correct the problems and keep your cherished belongings? A special characteristic about customizing is that you don’t have to repair things with their standard design, but can redecorate items with unique knobs and brand new drawers. Repairing and restoring old furniture can be looked at the same way as purchasing new, only you are free to put your input in to making. It is much more desirable to have, or keep, furnishings maintained and up to date then to break the bank and redecorate an entire room. The process can be just as quick to customize as it is to settle for something new simply because it appears more convenient.

Excerpt: The Oshawa Military and Industrial Museum (Map) is an accredited Canadian Forces Museum located in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. The museum, more commonly known as The Ontario Regiment (RCAC) ‘Ferret Club’, traces its roots in Oshawa to 1980, having grown to become the Historic Vehicle Section of the Ontario Regiment (RCAC) Museum. The museum’s maintainers are a uniquely-skilled and dedicated group of volunteer civilian military vehicle enthusiasts and include several current and former members of the The Ontario Regiment (RCAC), other units of the Canadian Forces, the Canadian Army, Royal Canadian Armoured Corps, Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, Royal Canadian Army Service Corps and the Royal Canadian Army Cadets. Operated as a living museum, this organization is quite different from most traditional collections and displays of Canadian militaria. Almost every vehicle in the museums collection is operational, or in some state of repair or restoration. Many vehicles including the vintage Sherman Mark IV, Chaffee, M60 and Sheridan tanks, armoured personnel carriers, trucks and jeeps are frequently driven in parades and other ceremonial activities involving The Ontarios or other units of the Canadian Forces. Since most of these vehicles are runners, the museum’s staff and maintainers are slightly less reluctant to let people climb onto and into their prized pieces than most museum curators. From time to time, a patron may even experience a ride first-hand. The funding required to restore, maintain, and fuel the museums historic vehicle collection. More:

Project Mustang: The Step-by-Step Restoration of a Popular Vintage Car


$24.95


Project Mustang is a complete guide to restoring America’s favorite muscle car, written by auto-restoration guru Larry Lyles, a regular contributor to Auto Restorer magazine. In this detailed 23-chapter volume, Lyles walks the car owner from the in-depth inspection of the vehicle and the beginning of the teardown to re-covering the seats and replacing the frame rail…and every step in between. The car restored for the project in the book is a 1968 California Special Mustang. The chapter titles themselves speak for what a straightforward DIY manual Lyles has written, as he details the step-by-step procedure of bringing a very cool rod back to life. Beginning the teardown, exterior and interior; repairing the sheet metal, door, and deck up; removing the major parts (driveshaft, engine, transmission, front suspension, steering system, etc.); removing old point and replacing rust floors; no-weld rust repair; perfecting the metal; working with plastic body filler; priming and sanding; refinishing the components and underside, the door, interior, trunk, and body; wiring the car and installing the doors; applying the coatings, rebuilding the suspension, and installing the brake lines; installing the vinyl top cover, the headliner, and the glass; rebuilding and installing the engine; installing the front sheet metal, emblems, bumpers, stripes, carpet, and console; re-covering the seats; and replacing the frame rails. Each step in every chapter is photographed as the author progresses along, with captions to spell out exactly what has to happen. The book offers helpful advice about choice of tools and tips to make even beginners feel confident about tackling the many steps involved. With nearly forty years experience in repairing, rebuilding, and restoring classic cars (and lots of non-classic ones!), Lyles emphasizes the reader’s need to organize his or her project by determining the course of the project, researching suppliers, making lists of parts
