Friendly Furniture Refinishing Service in Ottawa.

At Henderson Furniture Repair, our services are provided by skilled craftsman that truly care about their final products. Our love of what we do is what sets us apart from everyone else in the business and is a key reason why we are the oldest full-service furniture repair shop in Ottawa.

At Henderson's, we offer complete repair services, which include antique restoration and French polishing, as well as:


After your furniture arrives at our shop, we follow these steps:

  • Removing hardware and glass, etc. to be safely stored away
  • Hand stripping the piece to remove the existing finish
  • Sanding to smooth the surface and bring life back to the wood
  • Staining with the colour chosen at the outset by the customer. This provides the base colour for the piece when it is finished, as well as the moisture to the wood.
  • Moving the furniture to the spray room to be sprayed, shaded with lacquer to the exact colour chosen at the outset, and then protected with three coats of clear lacquer


Our reupholstering service usually consists of the following steps:

  • In-home visit from Colleen and browsing our samples
  • Providing a quote for the chosen fabric

The above two can also be done at our shop and sometimes through email. However, our free in-home estimate is the best bet.

  • Furniture pickup and delivery to our shop
  • Stripping off the old fabric
  • Upholstering using the new fabric chosen by the customer


If you requested a free estimate, it can be done in the following ways:

  • Colleen will visit you at your home, office or storage locker to provide a detailed estimate for the work to be completed. She can also provide fabric samples for you to choose from.
  • You are always welcome to come into the shop with your furniture to be given an estimate on work to be completed or to go through our wide variety of fabric choices.
  • We can accommodate your busy schedule by providing an estimate by email or over the phone. Although it is difficult to provide an accurate quote this way, we can provide a ball park estimate and advice. What's more, we are always more than willing to come out and take a look at your furniture.


You can count on us to repair sofas, chairs, dining room chairs, doors and much more. When you bring the piece, we assess what needs to be done and what is the best way to do it. You can also give us a call for an in-home estimate and arrange furniture pickup.


Sometimes all your old piece of furniture needs is some tender loving care. Whether you want us to smooth over a small mark, a scratch or a dent, or you just want to spruce an older piece of furniture up, we can touch up the problem areas while maintaining the original beauty of your furniture.

Pickup and Delivery

Since we do not expect people to be able to bring us their larger pieces of furniture, we provide a pickup and delivery service for modest cost. Please, call or email us for more information.
