If you are looking for someone to restore your furniture, you have found the right person. Adriano is really amazing. I asked him to restore a bedroom set that has been in my family since the 1940s. The pieces were badly discolored and stunk, having gone through various households of smokers throughout the years. Adriano was honest about everything right from the beginning, and very hard-working. He gave me a reasonable estimate, and told me up front what he felt could and could not be done with the pieces based on the type of woods used in them, and how they'd been manufactured. When I couldn't decide what I should do based on the limitations of the furniture itself, he even suggested he restore the smallest piece of the set and I see how I like it before I made a decision on the full set, which was a very generous offer. I felt he was very knowledgeable about his trade, and very up front and pleasant to speak with. He gave me his recommendations, but left the final decisions entirely up to me. He treated the piece of furniture to get rid of the smoky smell, and stripped off all the old paint. Then he physically brought it back from his workshop to show me it to me even before painting, so that I could decide how to proceed while able to see the raw wood. He completely worked around my hours and went above and beyond bringing the furniture back and forth to my house just so I could see it. He was very patient and did not complain as I did research regarding what colors I thought would work on the piece (which took a week or two since I was so busy and couldn't decide!). Once I picked my final colors (very simple, based on his recommendations), the turnaround time was very quick, and the piece looks amazing. It is a real stunner. I wouldn't even have recognized it as the same piece of furniture. You can judge for yourself based on the before and after pictures. I will definitely be having Adriano restore my other pieces of furniture that need doing, and would recommend him without reservation to anybody who needs their own job done. Thanks, Adriano!
