Or maybe you have outdated furniture stowed away in the garage, and you’re looking for a weekend DIY project. Whatever it may be, reupholstering or refinishing old furniture is a great way to revive outdated pieces and breathe new life into a space, all without breaking the bank. 

The best part about reupholstering and refinishing furniture is that the creative possibilities are endless - you can make a piece of furniture that’s uniquely yours and perfect for your home.

But suppose you want your furniture to match the style of a room or another piece of furniture. In that case, you should consider artistic hybrid-refinishing to create beautiful one-of-a-kind collectibles, using custom combinations of veneers, paints, oils, and stains.
