A place to get furniture re-finished?

wood table top cornerHeidi emails:

I have three small pieces of furniture that I am looking to have refinished. I have not lived in the Capital Region that long and don't know where to start looking for some place in the local area that comes recommended. ... Perhaps your readers might be able to recommend someone they have used in the past. One of the pieces also needs to be reupholstered eventually too...so any recommendations for reupholsters would be great too!

We had a re-upholstering question about a year ago -- and there were a few suggestions then. But this is the first time someone's asked about re-finishing.

So, have a suggestion for either one (or both) of Heidi's questions? Please share! (With details about why the place is good!)

They are a local (Troy) based business that started pretty recently. They do major repurposing of furniture as well as share tips on their blog about doing it yourself.

I recommend Furniture Repair Service in Delmar, 439-7700. They refinished four pieces for me and did a fabulous job. Their prices seemed fair, and they provided pick-up and delivery at no charge. I also had a sofa, loveseat and six dining room chairs reupholstered by Capital Reupholstery in Vooreheesville. Again, an excellent job. Diane was extremely helpful with fabric selection. 765-2169.

Although it's outside the Capital Region and so naturally isn't included in the AOA listing, as ever I remind everyone that the Dutchess County Fair is the biggest of all NYS county fairs and worth the trip to Rhinebeck.
