Lins Touch of Elegance


Dear Folks,
So glad we have become friends. Your kindness meant more than you’d ever guess - thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness. I love all your "good" fine work.

Love Ya Forever,
Mary Blades
I’m sorry it took so long for me to right this. I have been very busy, but it would be a shame if I didn’t take a few moments to thank you for your wonderful service. I had no idea what to expect when I called you to restore my Grandmother’s vanity. I had never had anything restored and was concerned to entrust it to you. I explored your website and nervously called your number.

I adored my Grandmother and wanted her vanity to be a focal point in my home. Your service was so quick and thorough, from start to finish. You amazed me! I was impressed that you would pick it up and bring it back to my home.It was so much more convenient than I expected.

My finished vanity is beautiful and is one of my most prized possessions. I am reminded of my Grandmother every time I look at it and am so happy that it is restored to pass down to my family through the coming generations. I would certainly request your services again.

Thank you again,
Bridget Felix

Thank you so much for your help with Mrs. Wyles table. I appreciate your professionalism in being ’part of the team’ in smoothing things over & correcting the matter with us. I will remember this kindness you’ve shown.

With Heartfelt Appreciation,
I can’t help but be grateful to you for making our church alter so beautiful. All our congregation is so pleased with your work. I will be getting in touch with you concerning our altar railing. It goes to committee. It takes a thoughtful individual like you, to help others in their time of greatest need. We’ve been praying for your. We pray that he is improving.

Thanks again,

Thanks so much for your help & advice on refinishing! My Mom said it looks beautiful. I’ll probably be getting it back to you later in October to do the seat.

Again Thank you,

Hello Lin,
The Victrola loooks nice and is playing nicely for an old one.

Lin has done wonderful work for us. We have a trunk that Jean's Grandfathers house. It was just left to deteriorate. Inside on the bottom was a note as to when he came to the Johnstown area in the late 1800s. When finishing the inside Lin was able to save it covered it with plexiglass. The restoration of the outside was another challenge that Lin overcame. The trunk a now beautiful piece of furniture. Lin also restored a rocking chair that was in my grandmother house and then my mother's house. Now after lin restored it along with an old chair they have joined the trunk in our living room. Without excellent work and talent of Lin they would be gone from the family. We would recommend Lin, without reservations to anyone l;ooking to have furniture restored.

As a collector of fine furnishings and antiques, I found Lin as the one person I can trust for best restoration results. And I live in Cleveland, Ohio! Creative. Knowledgeable. And talented. That‘s Lin. When we purchased a 19th Century Setee Loveseat at an auction, we searched far and wide for the right person to restore it. That was Lin. With her creative touch and here immense resource of time period coverings she turned the ordinary into an extraordinary showpiece! And we live in Cleveland. Like pickers, we travel the countryside looking for unique furnishings and collectables. When restoration is called for... we call Lin. She‘s more that a restoration specialist, she‘s a true artist! I‘ve attached a few photos. Let me know if there is anything else that you need.

Anytime we recieve a family heirloom that needs a touch of restoration, I call Lin. Lin restored an old all metal glider from the 50s which brought back nostalgia to my porch. Lin also restored my staircase back to its original beauty and with the purchase of a secratary from Lin, my front foyer is elegant. Lin puts the elegance back into any piece of furniture.

My daughter and I planned a celebration for my husband and aside from a small family get-together, wanted to do something meaningful that would last. Looking rather forlorn in the kitchen corner stood an old china closet that had been in his family for decades. We suspected a beautiful heirloom sat beneath the layers upon layers of first white then brown paint. We chose ďLinís Touch of EleganceĒ. Not only did Lin have to refinish the woodwork but she also had to rebuild some missing parts. I imagined it to be quite a challenge and would have been content with any improvement however, Lin had an artistís eye and could see potential that I had missed. Lin returned to us a beautiful work of craftsmanship that was far beyond anything we had envisioned. Lin truly has an undeniable talent, an artistís eye and a passion for her craft. Our trash-to-treasure gift now holds linens and things from Greece, Russia, Ireland and many trips we have made through the years. Thank you Lin for the memories preserved.
