Hi Scot.....here is my review: 5 Stars and FinishSmith delivers high quality and beautiful results. I had a love seat with two chairs and an antique dining set refinished and upholstered. The finished product was gorgeous. My expectations were more than met. I enjoyed working with Scot. He really is an expert at what he does and makes sure that every piece is perfect. I would highly recommend them. Polly L., Medina, OH

 Hi Scot:
I've attached a recommendation and review of our couch re upholstery. When our kids were here for Christmas, they all approved--and they are a critical and discerning bunch! Thanks for your work and for managing to complete the job well before Christmas! 
After thirty years of heavy use (four children, who knows how many dogs and cats!), we faced the decision that many have to make, whether or not to buy a new couch or have the old one reupholstered. It’s a typical dilemma because the cost differential seems almost insignificant. But we had to factor in that we have always loved the couch, it has been a steady part of our living room décor for nearly the lifetimes of our kids (at least), and it was originally a very good piece.

After some research into the best firm with the strongest recommendations in the area, we decided to go with Finishsmith. It was the right decision from the outset. As is often the case with work of this sort, we wanted it to be done before the holidays—as does everyone else! Scot Chatron promised us that it could be done (we discerned no crossed fingers or sly winks) and, with time to spare, he and his people had removed it from our living room, redid it, and returned it. Our faith in American workmanship is restored.

The couch “looks like new,” which I realize sounds like a cliché, but it really does. We were given a book of fabric samples to choose from (one, by then way, of many that are available from them), as well as the key to the all important information on what the various codes signified as to wear and durability. It is daunting to find just the right covering; when we bought the couch in the 1980s we took it from the floor. No choices then. On his first visit to our house, Scot understood our needs and provided what proved to be the best selection of fabrics for us to choose from. 

Bottom line: the couch has been beautifully rebuilt and reupholstered. It is as handsome as the one we originally bought, with the added advantage that it is exactly the couch we had always had and wanted! We are very happy that we decided for the remake and are completely satisfied with the work of Finishsmith.
Happy New Year!

We just wanted to thank you and your company for the outstanding gorgeous refinishing and upholstery job you completed on our buffet, chairs and dining room table. These are all heirloom pieces. The Upholstery was also beautiful. We are so happy that we made the decision to refinish the pieces. Your professionalism and friendly manner coupled with superb customer service and expert workmanship made the process very easy. We certainly will be using your services again in the future. We couldn't be happier with the finished project. thanks a million.

Scot and his team were a pleasure to work with. Scot is very knowledgeable, professional, and was very helpful to us with bringing our vision to life for our new nursery. I inherited some old heirloom furniture pieces from my grandmother and he transformed them into beautiful additions to our home.He worked extra hard to accommodate tight timeline before the baby came. He took extra special care of these priceless pieces and we couldn't be happier with the finished product and great customer service.The furniture brought our new nursery to life and these heirloom pieces will be enjoyed by our new family for many generations to come.

Review: We had our antique love seat and chair completely refinished and re-upholstered. They were both completely taken apart and rebuilt from frame up, including Marshall unit springs installed for comfort. It took some time but it was well worth the wait. The pieces our beautiful and now sit in our front entry foyer to our home.

Review: Had an antique chair and ottoman upholstered. Scott said it would take 4 to 8 weeks. When he called 3 and 1/2 weeks and said it was done we were shocked! Absolutely beautiful, quality craftsmanship! Beautiful job! Pleasure to do business with and would highly recommend to all! This is a family heirloom and will now be around for more generations to enjoy! Thank you Scot!

Review: Scot, the chest is absolutely gorgeous. My husband added beautiful antique-looking knobs and it looks beautiful. You did a wonderful job making my grandmother's old chest beautiful again..My kids love it to. Feel free to use me as a reference although your artistry speaks for itself.

Comments: The quality of the work was superb. My dining room table looks like new. Scott was courteous and professional. I didn't do any price comparisons, but I suspect Scott's was on the high end, but well worth it, probably because of the high caliber of his work and thus the high demand for it.
