As furniture travels through generations, getting passed from household to household wear and tear starts to become noticeable. For instance, water rings, nicks or scratches, or faded from sunlight may develop over time. Furniture like a home has memories that many people want to pass down. The following is a story from a recent customer who wanted to restore furniture for generations to come.
Aren is a middle school teacher who grew up in Saline, MI just outside of Ypsilanti. He now works In the Milan school district as a history teacher and also coaches football. Aren’s new wife Lynn is originally from Brighton, MI. She works at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in purchasing. They got married in May of last year and bought their first house in Ypsilanti. The house is located on a beautiful corner lot just across the street from the Oakengates subdivision park.
Aren’s parents, of Saline, insisted they incorporate his grandparent’s dining room set into there new Ypsilanti home. The tabletop was so beat up that it had to be planed at a mill-works shop. What a difference that made to the maple top! Notice the rich walnut stain against the now painted blue support and chairs. Just a stunning combination and smart retro look. Aren and Lynn are now expecting their first baby in April and plan to someday pass the table set down to the 4th generation.
