What Our Clients Say
"I was unprepared for how beautiful my furniture would look when it arrived. This furniture I purchased years ago and had given up on looked brand new. My husband and I had decided not to buy anything new as the quality was not as good, and it made more sense and was more cost-effective to have it refinished; the pieces look beautiful. I told Maria I thought I would cry when my furniture finally arrived. We now have sent over 15 articles to be refinished and reupholstered. George is an artist, and it is an absolute gift to create a thing of beauty from beat-up old furniture that is ready for the dump and turn it into something you are proud to have in your home. This family is truly a blessing. They are accommodating and patient with my crazy schedule dropping off and picking up furniture, and their prices are reasonable. Maria and George are a joy to work with, and their family is lovely. It is an all-out family business with the values to match. They are a genuinely hard-working family, and doing business with them is a pleasure. I am so pleased I went with this company, and I highly recommend them."
"Completely restored and refinished an older dresser for me to make it look brand new , absolutely love it. Would recommend to everyone and anyone to call if you have anything you want refinished (the right way)"
"Amazing company, the work AND the people. I’d needed an antique table refinished for so long and couldn’t find a place I felt comfortable with or for the right price. A friend recommended The Refinishing Oracle, (I searched for them through Thumbtack so I could check out the reviews) and I’m beyond glad that I contacted them. I couldn’t be any more proud to display my “new” table. It’s become quite the statement piece in my home, and I’m always sure to tell my guests who brought this table back from the dead. Thank you Refinishing Oracle for your amazing talent, professionalism, and quick turnaround time. Google needed more reviews, so I’m posting mine here! People NEED to know about your company. Keep up the amazing work!"
"George did an amazing job refinishing our Eldred Wheeler huntboard. While wrapped in bubble wrap, the finish was badly damaged from plastic residue which transferred and left large round spots covering the piece. After quite an effort, George restored our huntboard to its original beauty. We're thrilled with the result. No need to look further than The Refinishing Oracle for high quality work and professional service. Thank you, George!"
"I was having my Athol honey oak dining table and 6 chairs stripped down and painted grey. I did alot of research prior to selecting The Refinishing Oracle. One key to the stripping process is they use the flow over method vs. other refinishers dip. This is not recommended as dipping can weaken joints and damage wood. The Refinishing Oracle also uses 2 coats of primer, 4 coats paint and then lacquer. I am very pleased with the outcome of my dining set. It fits perfectly in my new kitchen. Pricing was very reasonable. I would recommend the Refinishing Oracle for your Refinishing projects."
"George and his team are some of the last few furniture artisans in southeastern New England that work with broad range of finishes and stains on furniture from heirloom antiques to modern pieces. He repaired and refinished a battered, epoxy coated Liberty Ship hatch cover table for us that would have been lost due to years of damage. Not only did George and his team delicately remove the old finish, but they repaired and restained the piece and recoated with an epoxy sealer (a finish few work with anymore). I cannot say enough good things about The Refinishing Oracle's workmanship, counsel and price point."
"When we were looking for someone to refinish and repair my grandfathers desk we knew we had to choose wisely. When we found George and Maria we knew they would be perfect for the job! Their attention to detail and communication made the process seamless and pleasurable. The desk came out beautiful and just what we were looking for! We are so happy with the finished product. Thank you George and Maria. I highly recommend the refinishing oracle for any of your furniture needs. "
