Refinishing Illinois Since 1983

Based in Heyworth, Illinois (10 miles south of Bloomington/Normal), we have been our customers’ first choice when it comes to furniture restoration since 1983. We provide a full range of professional services including hand stripping, repair, reproduction, staining and high quality finish of your choice.

We do it once because we do it right!

A1 Restoration has been in the furniture restoration services since 1983 and has been the premier choice for customers seeking quality refinishing or repair needs for their cherished wood antiques or family heirlooms. We have done small repair jobs, to fully rebuilding furniture from a pile of wood delivered to the shop, to museum pieces for the McLean County Historical Society Museum.

We can turn pieces you thought were headed for the burn pile into their original vain of glory. Or we can work with you and your beloved family heirloom and restore it using techniques that will leave the patina you’ve come to love but make the appropriate restoration or repairs needed. Please contact us today for your repair or restoration needs.
