~ 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.
