What Our Furniture Painting & Upcycling Service Includes

Furniture Painting & Upcycling - Consultation

Free Consultation & Discussion

A free service offered to all of our upcycling customers, we consult with you before we begin to ensure we can bring your ideas to life.

So whether you love the vintage greens and whites of the retro era, the rustic charm of shabby chic, or the clean lines of contemporary, we can upcycle your furniture in a style you love.

Furniture Painting & Upcycling - Sanding & Stripping

Complete Sanding & Stripping

We sand, strip and clean your furniture of all existing marks, wood stains and varnishes. Inside and out. We never simply paint over the top of your furniture’s existing finish.

By stripping and sanding your furniture back, we create the perfect blank canvas and ensure the smoothest finish possible.

Furniture Painting & Upcycling - New Drawer Bottoms & Furniture Backs

Replacement Drawer Bottoms & Back Panels

Drawer bottoms often become discoloured, damaged or marked with age. As do the backs of items like dressing tables, sideboards and bedside tables.

We replace all drawer bottoms and backs with new MDF panels perfectly cut to fit each piece. We also wax all drawers to ensure they run smoothly and don’t bump, stick or grind.

Furniture Painting & Upcycling - Paint & Wax

Paint & Waxes

At Best of Times we hand paint all of our furniture. We don’t spray paint, dip or use any other quick-and-easy techniques that can result in a messy or rough finish. By hand painting all of our furniture, we produce a smooth, fine quality finish that’s unique to our furniture.

We also wax all of our pieces using Voodoo Molly Furniture Wax to protect the piece and provide a soft, luxurious finish.

Furniture Painting & Upcycling - New Handles & Hardware

New Handles & Hardware

During the upcycling process we re-use your furniture’s existing handles and other miscellaneous items like drawer runners.

If you would like to have these replaced just let us know and we’ll add the price of these items to your final quote.
