Museum Restoration return objects to their original or usable and functional condition. Simple Restoration jobs may simply consist of a thorough cleaning or applying a new coat of finish. More complex jobs may include a near complete rebuilding or replacement. The main goal of restoration is to "restore" the original appearance or functionality of a piece. There is a lot of difference between restoring and repairing. You may achieve functionality with a repair, but restoring an item properly is an art-form.
For very old or very large objects, this kind of job is not recommended for amateurs; There can typically be considerable physical strength demands depending on the size of the piece, the need for a number of tools, an ideal workspace with natural lighting, and a great deal of storage space.
DF Conservation blends a passion for perfection with tasteful restraint in its antique wood restoration and antique wood refinishing of period and contemporary furniture, woodwork, and wooden architectural objects. Attention to detail and a respect for the integrity of a piece during the restoration process allow us to retain its original nature as much as possible.
