  • Repairing Lid on 1970's Bureau

    10Verified Review

    The lid on our Bureau had split and come loose. Piers took the lid away and made it look very presentable. He then brought it back promptly and fitted new lid stays. We are very pleased with the work.

    My chairs were given a beautiful new lease of life. They were lovingly restored to a high standard. My husband who was doubtful that they could be restored, was astonished at the result.

Company info

Completing an introductory French polishing course inspired me to complete a diploma in Furniture Restoration at the London College of Furniture, London Guildhall University. This included various aspects of furniture restoration and furniture making. 


Following this, I went on to work for an antique furniture restoration company serving clients in London and surrounding counties, and internationally.


After gaining more experience I set up PJS Restoration in 2003.


The services I offer amongst others are:


  • Cabinet making and repairs
  • Veneer patching and repairs
  • Traditional finishing with French polish 
  • Modern finishing and painting 
  • Colour matching


Unfortunately we do not offer upholstery services.
