Furniture Repair, Refinish, and Restoration

Carrison's Restorations, Inc. located in Manassas, Virginia has been in the current location for over 30 years. Proudly serving the entire Washington DC Metropolitan area including Prince William County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County and surrounding areas. Antique furniture restoration is the primary source of business with concentration on all types of furniture repairs.

The owner, David R. Wells, took over the business in 1987. David and his long-term employees proudly maintain the expert craftsmanship to restore all types of furniture with emphasis on antiques. At Carrison's, you will find all work is guaranteed and you will most certainly be satisfied with the results or they will keep working until you are.

Restoring furniture has been a labor of love as long as we have been in business. We love antiques, but we also understand that, old or new, modern or antique, a person's furniture is a part of the person. Restoration does not always mean making an old piece of furniture look new. Sometimes restoration means making the piece look the way it did right before the latest damage occurred. Mom wants to remember every mark on her son's high chair except the broken leg the movers caused, so we strive to repair the break and preserve the history of her child's chair.

We take care to understand what you want done while providing quality furniture restoration and repair services.

Quality Service

At Carrison's, our experience makes us capable of performing proper and professional repairs which are equal to or better than any other shop in our region. We also take pride, not only in the quality of our finishes, but in our ability to provide custom finishes and to match colors. This is the foundation of our business and what has kept our customers coming back. We will not compromise the quality of our work that makes up our reputation. back to top

Reasonable Price

A reasonable price does not necessarily mean the cheapest price. Our customers deserve to have their furniture restored by someone who has performed his work diligently. While quality will always be our main focus, we strive to complete all work as efficiently as possible.

Historic Resolute Desk

Carrison's Restorations was recently retained to work on a $40K replica of the historic Resolute Desk. The solid mahogany replica of the desk used by President Obama in the Oval Office of the White House over 6 administrations. The original was given to President Rutherford Hayes by Queen Victoria in 1880 and has been in nearly continuous use in the White House to this day.

The desk work on by Carrison's currently sits in the George Bush Memorial Library in Houston.

Restoration Philosophy

The motivation behind Carrison's restoration work is to respect and preserve as much of the original piece as possible. Regardless of the specific repair needs, each piece receives the same basic hands-on process, including:

• Cleaning • Sealing • Polishing

We treat all types of wood using the best and most appropriate techniques. Each job receives a personal touch, renewing the beauty of the piece and adding to its durability.

Furniture Restoration

The key to quality furniture restoration is to preserve the integrity of the original piece. Therefore, at Carrison's Restoration, we recommend restoring only the damaged or lost areas of any piece of furniture.

Our process includes:

  • Meticulous cleaning
  • Missing parts fabricated and replaced (i.e. decorative ornaments, hardware, drawers, and legs)
  • Touch-ups, color blending and matching

Furniture Refinishing

Refinishing is an ideal solution when the existing finish is damaged or a new look or color is desired. Carrison's does not dip furniture to strip away the old finish. Here furniture is hand stripped or a flow-over tank is used. This method ensures joints are not dried out and there is no disfiguration of the wood from sitting in lye.

  • Old finish removed by hand.
  • Stained and color toned for a perfect match, or as specified.
  • Each layer of material hand polished for a flawless finish.
  • Each finish sealed by layered coats of protective material for beauty and durability

Furniture Repair

The keys to quality furniture repair are invisibility and durability. Repairs are virtually seamless; no job should compromise a piece's integrity or current value. Each repair is done so that the area that failed will not fail again under normal use.

We can:

  • Repair fire, smoke, water and pet damage.
  • Re-fabricate and replace missing parts.
  • Raise dents and fill gouges.
  • Reinforce loose joints and re-glue.

Is the damage due to a move? Carrison's works with many insurance companies and can provide the needed estimate to get your military move or other mover claim processed.

If you have a special piece of furniture you want handled with care and expert craftsmanship, be certain to visit Carrison's Restorations, Inc. Even if you only want part of the job done and plan to do the rest yourself; Carrison's will even help explain how to complete the part you plan to perform.
