Midwest Furniture Repair And Refinishing  -  Amazing Results

I think it's awesome when a person finds their niche.

Being passionate about a hobby that can be transformed into a business is something most people can only dream about. It took very little time to learn that restaurant table top refinishing is a unique service that very few people offer and are able to do and do it because it's a pleasure to see the finished product. You have to have at the least, a passion for quality and finely made furniture. It's hard to find a craftsman with the passion of restoring wood furniture and fine wood consistently.

The passion started back in the 80's with a search to upgrade from "hand me down" furniture to good quality furniture. In a search for new furniture, it was quickly realized that the quality of the wood furniture was poor and that these items were expensive.

Dad had passed down his childhood solid maple dresser, his "hand me down" that needed a little TLC and it needed the old finish removed and renewed to preserve it's beautiful hardwood quality and certainly it's serious sentimental value.

Over 7 years, several beautiful pieces of furniture were located that were restored and are enjoyed to this day. Home is filled with furniture where each piece has a wonderful story such as where it was purchased, how it looked before and how it was able to be restored so it can be enjoyed every day .

This passion for wood restoration allowed family and friends who needed a little TLC on a couple pieces of their furniture, to restore their precious family heirlooms, pieces they found recently, or simply to give something a different look.

Once you find a niche that you really enjoy and brings you pleasure with the end result, you can't help but turn it into a business especially when there is such a demand for high quality wood restoration. It's great to see before and after pictures of family heirlooms let alone the expressions of their owners after seeing the revived furniture.

This niche expanded into bar and restaurant table top restoration that has exploded and become a very lucrative business. The results are astounding and it just goes to show that anyone can turn something that they are passionate about into a business. I found out about this process years ago from a friend that was visiting and showed me some pictures of furniture he had refinished. If you're interested, here are some of the restored wood pieces .
