Wood Refinishing in Portland: Outdoor Furniture
Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Friday, June 26, 2020
There is something that resonates in the human spirit with the idea of finding and restoring the beauty is something that is old and worn. Just think of the number of shows there are about flipping houses, or how many enthusiasts show up at events to see restored antique cars. We find that same enjoyment is restoring beautiful woodwork. The wood has a beauty all its own, but time and weather can obscure it. With the right techniques and products, we can bring that beauty back to light!
One of the things that sets Sundeleaf Painting apart from other painting contractors in the Portland area is our specialty in high-end wood refinishing and restoration. From kitchen cabinets to garage doors, from spiral staircases to wooden shutters, we refresh and renew the favorite features of your home!
Project Photos - Wood Furniture Restoration
Among our recent wood restoration projects here in Portland was this one, involving some wooden patio furniture. As you can see, it bears all the marks of living outside in the damp Portland weather! The original finish has long worn away, and the wood has become a dull gray, hidden behind layers of lichen and grime. In this condition, the wooden furniture hardly deserved a second glance.
Enter Sundeleaf Painting! Our craftsmen began the painstaking process of stripping away the surface contaminants and the weathered outer layer of wood. Some surfaces are fairly easy to get at, but we made sure every nook and cranny was expertly cleaned and smoothed.
First we used specialized products to color the wood, bringing out the rich luster of the wood grain. Finally, we coated the furniture with a waterproof finish to seal it against the weather.
And the finished product? Amazing! We can't decide if we'd rather sit on it, or just stare at it!
