We have the original 1917 Oak table and chairs from the farmhouse that I grew up in. The set belonged to my great grandparents and passed down through successive generations. I have many happy memories laughing as a family around this table and watching my mom knead bread on it every week. Although a good set, some of the chairs were wobbly or missing a rung or two; the table was in desperate need of some love, having a lot of bare wood showing where there had once been varnish.
Farshad and Sally treated this project with so much love and care. I didn’t expect the level of consideration and attention to detail that they put into the refinishing.
It was really important to them that I get the colour and finish that looked best in our home.
After they had it stripped down they gave me samples on the back of a table leaf so I could bring it home and decide which looked best in the space. They took every part of the chairs apart and stained and rebuilt them. The result is absolute beauty! The grain of the old oak is showcased it all its glory and the finish is matte, yet silky smooth. Farshad and Sally went well above my hopes and expectations! They preserved a piece of our family’s history and I couldn’t be happier with the result! I highly recommend their work.

They restored it back to its original beauty, and we were in shock with how well it turned out. They truly have a passion for their craft and were very kind and professional. They are a family run business in Langley, so we were very happy to support local. We will be taking more furniture to them in the future, and I highly recommend them.

FS1 Finishing did a beautiful job restoring my grandmother’s table. The finish was damaged from water stains, and there was structural damage from moving. The table looks like new and is ready for its next 100 years.
