Refinishing & restoration process

~ Restoration & Refinishing Process ~

   When we first began refinishing furniture, we would sand & restore each piece, stain the wood & then paint on layers of color before beginning the distressing process. (Our distressing process involving copious amounts of sand paper & tons of time.)

   Today, after years of refinishing & restoration, the process we use is still the same. We don’t use chalk paint & nothing you’ll find in our shop has been finished with antiquing wax. The pieces here have all been refinished & distressed with paint, sandpaper & lots of elbow grease. This process is what gives these pieces their genuinely distressed look.

   An equally important factor in this refinishing process is the way the furniture holds up over time. The products we use aren’t meant to make the distressing process faster when refinishing. This means the finish on these pieces holds up better over the years.

   Each piece of furniture is sealed with a clear coat finish for added durability. This is not furniture that is easily ruined due to some messy paw prints, children’s or pet’s, (Charlie has tested some of them for us). If it gets dirty, simply wipe it off.

   All of the pieces available in our shop have been restored & refinished with lots of love, tons of time & way too much attention to detail. The finished pieces here at Reincarnated with Love reflect the time & effort that has been put into them & will continue to do so for many years to come.

Love it!!!

I’m so happy with my purchase! Wish they had another one.

Gorgeous creative teal one of a kind desk.

I saw this desk online and fell in love with it’s uniqueness, the color, the style, it reminded me of something out of the furniture of Beauty and the Beast when it came alive…so my husband Steve surprised me and bought it. I am now happily typing on it from my new office and everyone comments on how solid and gorgeous it is. The woman that designed it did a fabulous job and I would definitely buy her creations again. - Fran

I love this set

Beautiful set with painted accents in an aged, copper patina. Very well done and I won’t see this anywhere else. Ellie is very professional and kept me updated in every step of the packaging and shipping process. I love this set and wouldn’t hesitate to do business with Reincarnated with Love again.

We found and purchased this set after a protracted and torturous effort to purchase a custom painted desk from another artist. The difference in service, responsiveness and attitude Ellie provided-all positive-was night and day! Immediate replies, continuous status updates on the challenging task of shipping to Manhattan, NY, and the pieces are exactly as photographed and represented. Perfect fit for our space, and the look we want to achieve. Thanks, Ellie!

This chest of drawers is absolutely beautiful, even prettier than in the picture. Customer service was wonderful, very personable and helpful. Received the item in a relatively short period of time, expertly packed and well protected. I would not hesitate to order another item from this seller, couldn't be happier in every step of the process.
