About Us

How We Started

Our origins start with a single mother looking to make a living in the world. Sandra apprenticed under a German master and afterwards decided to hang out her own shingle in 1997 as Sandra Dee’s Finishing Touch offering refinishing and repair services. Services expanded over the years to include Antique restoration, period piece reproduction and furniture painting and was renamed to Sandra Dee Furniture Restoration.


Sandra retired in 2013, selling the business to Michael who has continued the tradition of quality craftsmanship and customer service of Sandra Dee Furniture Refinishing & Restoration while being an active member of the community for social justice and steward of our planet.
