Carved Onyx Torchiere –

Joe brought in an torchiere floor lamp with ornate Onyx carving accents for full rewiring and restoration. Additionally, a custom base night-light was requested. An LED bulb would be used for efficiency and to provide sufficient illumination through the onyx base stone.
During restoration, full disassembly, cleaning, repairs and wiring for all five sockets was performed. The Onyx carving was carefully cleaned, and then polished with a gentle beeswax finish to return a satin sheen to the surface.
The results are a stunning center piece, showcase and discussion starter lamp, gracing vibrant living spaces in the home.

Chandelier Repainting –

Convert a small brass and crystal fixture into a dainty white enamel fixture for a child’s room. Absolutely it can be done!
With a quality fixture, doing the job properly means:
Disassembly, Cleaning, Individual part spraying, Reassembly, Rewiring, and Crystal installation. A new heirloom fixture is born, awakened for the child princess to enjoy over the decades.

Porcelain and Brass Chandelier –

Joe and Maria simply loved this fixture the moment they saw it in an antique store. It needed rewiring, tightening, new candle covers and crystals, but it was stunningly beautiful, a rare find.
A full restoration process of disassembly with detailed photo’s of each step and special cleaning for the gold leaf ceramic accents and body.
A separate appointment addressed crystal selection: With some suggestions and several options, Joe and Maria  identified pleasing prism shapes to accent the fixture, highlight the elegant arms, and sparkle with dancing lights as you pass by.
