How Much Does Furniture Refinishing Cost?

Wooden Antique Shelf In Living Room Behind Dining Chairs

Wear and tear is normal for furniture. Eventually, there may come a time you need furniture refinishing to restore or repair your furniture and make it as good as new. It is best to leave refinishing to the professionals, especially when dealing with antique furniture.

You should be aware that the cost of refinishing, however, is not a one-price-fits-all situation. In fact, an established restoration company will base their pricing on a few important factors:

  • Damage – The damage to the piece of furniture and assessing necessary repairs is the first step. The more repairs the furniture item needs, the more the refinishing process will cost.
  • Size – If you have a large piece of furniture, it will cost more than a small piece, because it takes more supplies and time.
  • Finish – The finish you choose for your refinishing project can dramatically impact the price. If you plan on changing the entire look, you can expect to pay more than if you are simply restoring it to its original look.
  • Age – The older the furniture or if it is an antique, the more it will cost. That is because the company doing the restorations must take extra care with the wood and hardware in order to preserve the integrity of the piece.

    I have a dining room table and 6 chairs that need refinishing and the chair seats reupholstered. I was told it is a Gibbard walnut set from the 20’s. The table seats 6 and has 2 leaves. A couple of questions.
    Can you give me a ballpark cost. (I realize that could vary)
    Do you pick up? we are just north of Newmarket.
    Do you dip your furniture to remove the finish?

      Hello Lalita, please email photos of the pieces you wish restored to [email protected] and we can start the process.
      Usually that chalkboard paint is rather difficult to remove so it may not be possible, but please send photos for us to review.
      Thank you!
