The antique rocker shown above was brought to me with one of the arms broken. I had to re-secure the arm and tighten up some other areas. I stripped off all the old finish and stained it a deeper walnut color to get rid of some red in the wood. Check out the link to see the finished image.

The antique sofa needed stripping and refinishing as well.  When I re-finish antique pieces I try and preserve a somewhat patina look so it looks like it was the original finish.
