Reviews: Average review: 0 Number of reviews: (0) Level: Beginner Category: , , , ,

Do you find wooden furniture as beautiful and endearing as it is imperfect? Would you like to give some love to that chair whose rungs are threatening to give way?

In this 3-hour workshop, we’ll discover the basics of furniture restoration, while respecting its style and origins! Whether it’s your ancestor’s battered chest of drawers, a rickety chair found in an alley, or a piece of Scandinavian furniture that’s aged, this workshop will show us the steps we need to take to restore our old wooden furniture to its former glory.

After discussing the precautions to be taken when salvaging, we’ll go through the various stages of restoration:
– Cleaning and stripping
– Analysis of work and products required
– Disassembly
– Reassembly and preparation for finishing

We’ll then take a look at common problems and their solutions: furniture legs; seats; drawer slides; drawer bottoms; chair rungs; repairing misfits.

Skills required: none, apart from a little curiosity.

The price includes all necessary materials and thousands of tips for your DIY projects!

Note: if you have an object to restore, you can bring it in for a diagnosis. It just has to be small enough to be carried in your hands (drawer, chair seat, furniture leg…).
