Q: Our furniture at home is a combination of modern and antique furniture. Could you recommend antique furniture restorers to help us preserve these wooden family treasures? —Monina Santiago

A: Restoring furniture can be tricky because you just can't have anybody do it. As you know, an untrained or inexperienced person might ruin your precious piece. In order to ensure the best possible result, I would go to stores that sell antiques. Antique stores must have (or at least know), someone who can properly restore treasured items.

You can check out the shops at Tiendesitas, Greenhills Shopping Center, and Jo-Liza Arts and Antiques at 664 Jose Abad Santos, Little Baguio, San Juan, Manila. You may also want to try Peñafrancia Antique Furniture Repair at 137 Kaingin St., Valenzuela City. Since I have yet to try their services, do check out the pieces they are currently working on before you commit.
