Recent furniture restoration.

For many years we have quietly undertook commissions to redecorate or restore items of furniture. Just before I started my apprenticeship I remember my dad telephoning Dulux technical advice in Slough to ensure the eggshell finish he was going to redecorate a child’s cot with was safe to use in that situation. Fortunately it was.
Times have advanced and predominately we use water based products now where ever possible. But the principals are still the same and preparation is paramount. Items of furniture should not only be pleasant to admire from a distance because they  are tactile must be pleasing to touch also.

A recent example of a little renovation project are two tables out of the local theater and arts center which had rather been forgotten about. Although they were in a sorry state I managed to strip back the surface to reveal the table tops were solid oak. After a bit of care and attention  they were sympathetically restored.

Here is a little of our history



Here is a little of our history, more to follow naturally. Time is progressing on once more and our little website has received another minor update so I am reviewing my blogs and updating them as we go, please excuse me if you’ve seen them before.

As this was my very first real blog on here I thought I would start by looking back a little, my apprenticeship started in 1983, my Dad had just bought the little Mini van in the picture. When he signed the van up it was just done as Vic Wilkinson I wasn’t even allowed a mention at that time. In the following years we progressed onto slightly bigger vans as you can see.

We are with you in all weathers for all your decorating requirements,

V. Wilkinson & Son are entering their 50th year in 2018, we shall look forward to working with our customers bringing their decorating ideas to reality.
