“I have had many pieces restored by Howard’s and they have all been exceptional. Even after their recent fire, their quality was not comprised.

Recently I had an old scratched French provincial desk done with lots of fine detail on the drawers. It was done really tastefully with a bit of a modern twist. Excellent. Also an old corner China cabinet was revitalized to a beautiful deep indigo. Quality work, and done in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Howard’s" - Jane R


"My mother in law had a coffee table that was over 30 years old and in rough shape. We took it Howard's and him and the apprentice worked on it and it came back beautiful like the first day it was bought. My mother in law was amazed to see the table come back to life in the rich cherry mahogany color it was made in. The work was outstanding and really worth waiting for!" - JP


"We contacted Rick to get an estimate of stripping the old white finish off of my old wood baby dresser (1968) and update it to a more modern look and match our son's current bedroom furniture.

We gave Rick one of the drawers to see how easy it would be to remove the current finish, and then Rick even suggested that we cold do the staining ourselves. However, the price from Rick was excellent and we asked them to do the whole project (strip, sand, and stain to match).

The final product is amazing. It's hard to believe the transformation from old to new. Our son loves his "new" dresser, and we love the fact that it was "Daddy's" before. Thanks Rick!" - D&P
