My husband and I had recently purchased our first home. The kitchen needed alot of help and we were on an extremely tight budget. New Cabinets were way out of our price range and we dreaded the thought of having to paint oak cabinets. I'm really glad I called the Refinish Artist and spoke with Paul. He gave me a few options and helped me figure out exactly what I could expect from my worn out, filthy cabinets.

In one day Paul and son were able to return my cabinets to beautiful wood. Aside from a little bit of odor, in my experience it was a relatively clean process. I was pleased when they covered my furniture and counters with plastic even though the counters were to be replaced. If you like the mom and pop shop experience and craftsman ship attention, these are the guys to go with.

As per their website, they were to solvent clean, then damaged and worn areas were to be stripped, sanded, primed and sealed, then stain colors perfectly matched and sealed, with a top coat of polyurethane all without the need to remove anything from your cabinets and with 'no mess.' That's what was SUPPOSED to be done. It's not what happened.

My cabinets look awful. The finish is uneven, many cabinets were not cleaned before they simply sprayed a layer of satin finish with no stripping, sanding or cleaning. Dust and crud is now sealed in. Doors were put back on crooked or uneven with its mate and several don't close any more. Hinges are crooked and uneven. Some of the finish flakes right off. They had to extend their work into a second day and I had to repeatedly point out what needed to be done. Numerous times, they declared they were done and I'd find cabinets not done AT ALL. As in not even cleaned much let 'stripped, sanded, primed, stained and sealed' where needed. He tried to say it had been done, but I made a line in the dust on the surface to show that it was obviously not done. Then he wiped it with a rag and sprayed some satin spray and called it done. Sigh. Two different pieces of trim were split and separating from the cabinets and not repaired whatsoever when they said they were finished yet again. Really, you call that a completed, restored and renewed cabinet?? I eventually sent them on their way when I realized they simply weren't going to restore my cabinets as promised. I showed them time and time again all the problems and they just sprayed more satin spray on the spots instead of really sanding or 'restoring.' It was only getting worse and I didn't want any further damage being done. It was time to cut my losses and get them out of there.

Once they left, we realized EVERYTHING in the kitchen was covered in a fine layer of dried polyurethane spray - the silverware, the dishes, the glasses, the kitchen table, the floor, the window, the screen, everything. We are having to use disposables until I figure out how to get all this stuff clean. I'm not sure what to do about the table. This experience has been simply awful.
