Introduction: I call what I do "old school" furniture refinishing because of my extensive experience with French Polishing (Hand-rubbed shellac). When stripping is required I use environmentally safe products. My expertise includes kitchen cabinet and miscellaneous furniture painting, minor repairs, restoration of solid wood and being creative with milk paint. When called upon to renew outdoor teak furniture I will take the pieces down to the natural raw wood and protect it with Marine Varnish. I love to bring new life and beauty to your furniture, exposing the beauty of the grain, modernizing vintage furniture and having the client fall in love all over again. I prefer to work within a 25 mile radius of my workshop.

I had a oak table and an oak piano that needed the surfaces refinished and am extremely pleased with the final results and the cost was reasonable would definitely use again

Furniture Refinishing

I had a very tight timeline for my project as I was moving out of Nashville in two weeks. Not only were my chairs stripped, stained, and finished with time to sore; but I had regular communication about how the project was going. I was able to see my project through from start to finish, my ideas/thoughts were not only taken in to account but I could tell truly valued. I would definitely use Painted Cow again for any project.

My grandparents, Bil and Jeanie, had three beautiful cherrywood pieces of furtniture that they gifted to Shayne and I. We were given permission to refinish them and I want to say a huge thank you to Richard Sturtridge and “The Painted Cow Furniture Company” for keeping the integrity of each piece while adding a finely detailed look. He came to preview the pieces, provided transportation and his pricing was unbeatable. If you have refinishing needs, he’s your guy!

Painted Cow did a tremendous job on refinishing a piece of furniture my father made 45 years ago. The service was punctual, affordable and expertly executed. My brother asked how I managed to get the refinishing done. I can finally say "I have a guy"

Richard is refinishing several pieces of furniture for me. He picked one piece up Wednesday. I have received one picture and two texts showing his progress.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I do. I charge $45 and hour with a minimum of 3 hours per piece. I have been known to give my client a deal and establish a not to exceed price. I accept a deposit of the minimum before starting work.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Once we have made contact on Thumbtack we arrange a time when I can visit the work in question to make a final decision.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I imported antiques from Indonesia for 15 years and learned everything from doing.
