I found Finishing Traditions in the Yellow pages and I was impressed with the experience John brought to the table. Our antiques came from Greece and are family heirlooms. They were painted with varnish and looked terrible. John stripped them, showed us the stain he recommended and they are absolutely beautiful. I love the pieces now. John was professional and personable. I will recommend John and Finishing Traditions to all who ask. They did phenomenal work and brought back the beauty hidden below the years. The cost was very reasonable and well worth every penny. Thank you!
