Dining Room Table and Chairs Refinishing

My dining room table was damaged because of a flood on the second floor that leaked down. And it's been needing refinishing for years anyway. So I came to Homestars and was impressed by all the great reviews for Johnnys Finishing Shop. They're well warranted. My table, about 70 to 80 years old, has seen some wear and tear over the years. I couldn't believe how great it looked after Johnny and his staff finished it. It looks brand new. I don't think it's ever looked better. And the chairs, sort of creaky and wobbly, are now rock solid. Johnny did an absolutely amazing job and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend his services. First rate!

Refinish livingroom tables

Traditional dark/reddish mahogony tables (3) hadnt been updated in 30 years. Johnny and Rob were terrific to deal with including having me to the shop to play around w stain shades once the tables were stripped. End result is beautiful - I couldnt be happier. Tiimely, professional, and excellent craftsmen.

Furniture Restoration

We hired Johnnys Finishing Shop to refinish several vintage/antique furniture pieces that suffered water damage as a result of the flooding here in Etobicoke in July 2013. John and his team did a remarkable job in restoring these family heirlooms. He listened to what we wanted and added his input based on many years of experience. In fact the furniture looks better than we could have imagined. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Johnnys Finishing Shop.

furniture refinishing, re-upholstery

We have hired John and his shop on multiple occasions (refinishing dining room set, dresser and washstand; building and staining new rails to match an existing bed; restoring a newell post in our hallway; and reupholstering a sofa seat). The work has consistently been of high quality and craftsmanship. In addition, when recently restoring two chairs in December on a tight timeframe, John ensured they were completed and delivered as promised for the holiday period. We will use the shop again and recommend it without hesitation.

Restoring bed

I had chemical damage caused by an exterminator on the footboard and headboard of my bed. As well, there was a crack in the footboard. Johnny's Finishing Shop repaired all these problems expertly and efficiently. My bed looks brand new. Bravo!

Refinishing Kitchen Cupboards

I was extremely happy with the quality of work that was completed by Johnnys Finishing Shop. They were happy to do a sample door before the entire kitchen cupboard doors and drawers were refinished. On time, on budget. Excellent job.

Couch Repair

Had my small white sofa repaired recently (front wooden support had broken) and am very pleased with the service and results! John was a professional and easy to deal with (communicated over email, phone and in person during the pickup and return). Price was great. They picked up and returned my sofa to my condo in Etobicoke at the agreed upon date and time. I was concerned my white microfiber sofa might get dirty in transport and they wrapped it for both transfers and it came back as white as it left :) Would definitely use and recommend for furniture repairs!

Antique Armoires

Great service. Showed up within a day to provide a quote. Very professional disassembly and packing of two antique armoires for home renovations. Final price was $300 under the initial estimate. Won't hesitate to use their services for reassembly and touch-ups when renovations are complete.

Antique Barrister's Desk

We had an antique barrister's desk we wanted refinished. I found Johnny's on this site and decided to trust the positive feedback and ratings. We were extremely pleased with the service and the end product. The quote we received was competitive and included pick-up and delivery. Johnny is experienced, professional and talented. The piece came back to us on time and looks absolutely stunning. It is exactly what we wanted.

Refinishing & Reupholstering

I reviewed many furniture finishing shops before I decided to trust my heirloom pieces to Johnny. It was very important to me that these pieces be in the hands of a professional and trustworthy person. Johnny was meticulous during the sample process of the silver finish to be used, he did not proceed until I was delighted with the colour and patina. We agreed that silver leaf was the medium to use. I was so amazed at all the fine detail and texture of the wood carving on the settee!! Johnny recommended tufting only the back of the settee, so that it was not too busy. It was a good call, as I am still in awe of all the wood detail. I would like to thank his team including Beth, for all of their fine workmanship and care given to all of my cherished pieces. These pieces are now sound and STUNNING!

Thank you Johnny, I could not be any happier :)
