How to Identify and Restore Antique Furniture

Good sources for finding antique furniture are secondhand stores, household auctions, and garage sales. With furniture, as with anything else, one person's junk is another person's treasure. When you want to refinish old wooden furniture, look in the family storeroom: Check the attic, basement, garage, or wherever unwanted furniture has collected. You may discover a real antique or two -- pieces handed down through the family for generations. No matter where you find it once you have the perfect piece for your home there are ways to tell exactly just how old that piece truly is. For details follow Antique wood can be very delicate and sometimes difficult to restore without damage to the surface. Some chemical strippers can roughen or raise the wood grain of your piece creating unwanted dark spots when you go to refinish the wood.
