When making and old an worn piece of furniture look like new again, one common restoration technique is furniture stripping. Essentially, stripping involves the process of removing old layers of paint and varnish. Whether the piece of furniture is a family heirloom or something you picked up, furniture stripping can remove those cracked or ugly layers of paint or varnish, allowing the beautiful piece of furniture beneath to shine or to prepare the piece for a new layer of paint or varnish.

From valuable, antique pieces of furniture to standard tables, doors, chairs, and more, our specialized craftsmen and women use industry best practices to safely remove those old layers without causing damage to the furniture’s structure, frame, veneer, or glued joints.
Furniture Stripping in the Atlanta Area
With four generations of experience, our master furniture craftsmen and women at Pace Furniture recognize the value of your furniture, no matter if it’s a highly valuable piece of antique furniture, or simply a common piece of furniture around your house. Therefore, when stripping your furniture, we take every precaution to ensure a professional, proactive job.
At the start of every furniture stripping process, we make sure to remove any hardware from the piece of furniture. If needed, we may need to disassemble the piece as well. In terms of the furniture’s labels, some of which identify the original manufacturer and are essential to the piece’s value, we’ll carefully remove or cover the label so as to not damage it during the stripping process.
Next, we remove the old paint or varnish by placing the piece in a dip tank. Or, for more delicate pieces, we remove the entire finish by hand. The sanding process will then smooth out any scratches and other imperfections. Depending on your needs, we can then work on refinishing the piece and restoring it to its former beauty and charisma.
