There’s something to be said about a piece of heirloom furniture sitting in your house, such as Dad’s old desk. This piece is more than a simple object for work. It has witnessed many moments, such as when he worked those late nights or managed household accounts. All those years of use may have caused the desk to develop some wear and tear.

Transforming Wear and Tear into Timeless Beauty

Dad’s desk has likely seen it all over all the years of use. This has resulted in different types of wear and tear that have started giving it a worn-out look. Below, we highlight the types of wear that professional wood refinishing services can fix. Understanding this can help you see that the desk is not beyond redemption.
Scratches and Scuffs

Sliding objects across the desk, such as keys, heavy books, or a metal lamp base, often lead to scuffs and scratches. Other times, a pet may find a cozy spot on the desk, leading to scuffs. Sanding down the desk’s surface and reapplying the finish can restore the desk’s smooth and welcoming texture.

Sun Fading

From time to time, we are told that adequate natural light increases productivity. As such, maybe you have positioned the desk near a window. Unfortunately, this sunlight exposure can cause the desk to fade unevenly, affecting the wood’s uniform look. Refinishing allows the faded areas to be treated to match the desk’s original color. It can also involve applying a protective coating that will help guard the desk against future fading.

Water Rings/ Stains

A cup of water or coffee can leave water rings or stains, especially if you have a specific spot where you place the cup. With time, this ruins the wood’s appearance. Refinishing helps eliminate these accidental stains, restoring the wood to its original elegance.

Chips and Dents

Daily activities like moving office supplies across the desk, accidentally dropping items on it, or even moving the desk to a new corner can lead to chips and dents. Refinishing removes these marks, buying your desk several more years of use.

Worn Finish

Years of use will strip the desk of its protective finish, leaving it dull and lifeless. When Dad’s desk loses that original appeal, it’s common to want to throw it away. However, there’s a simple way to bring it back to life. Refinishing eliminates that old, worn-out finish, giving your desk a natural luster and highlighting the wood grain’s beauty.

Benefits of Refinishing Old Wood

Although wood is a beautiful furniture material, it has a habit of degrading over time and losing its aesthetic appeal. But before discarding that family heirloom because it looks worn out, CLS Custom Upholsterers & Refinishing offers a simple solution with multiple benefits. Wood refinishing saves you money and helps you preserve that desk that holds sentimental value. Consider the benefits of refinishing old wood below.

Preserve Quality Items

Nowadays, most people complain that furniture isn’t high-quality like it used to be. If that desk was made with quality wood, why throw it away because it looks dull? Refinishing that old desk is an economical way to maintain your quality desk and get a beautiful look without investing in new furniture.

Protect Its Sentimental Value

That desk may have been in the family for years and holds significant value. But with time, you’ll notice years of use can take a toll on it, giving it an outdated appearance. Instead of throwing it away, refinishing it allows you to keep passing it from generation to generation. By restoring this sentimental piece, it can be used for years to come.

Save Time and Money

If you’re trying to save money when refurnishing your home, consider refinishing that old desk. Picking out new furniture takes a lot of time and money. You have to visit the physical or online store and peruse multiple pieces until you find something ideal for your home. And when you see it, you have to spend time assembling it. With refinishing, you already have quality furniture, and you know what it looks like in your home. You don’t need to spend time looking for a new piece, and you save money by avoiding buying a new piece of furniture.

Environmentally Friendly

When you restore that old desk, you play a role in conserving the environment. At CLS Custom Upholsterers & Refinishing, we want to help you maintain an environmentally friendly lifestyle by refinishing that old desk. We enable you to reuse and prevent it from ending up in a landfill.

Same Furniture, New Style

Whether you want to refinish the desk to suit your new taste or want to restore its original look, refinishing is the answer. It gives your desk a complete face-lift while maintaining the elements that made you love it in the first place.

Increases Value

Refinishing that old desk doesn’t just give it a new look. It also increases its value. This is especially common for older pieces made of quality wood. Since it’s hard to find such pieces today, you will have a highly-valued piece in your home. In addition, refinishing eliminates all these imperfections that are reducing your desk’s value.
