Welcome to Kerrigan Restoration

Kerrigan Restoration is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of wooden furniture and objects in the greater Baltimore area. The studio is run by Phillip Kerrigan, a furniture restorer with over 14 years experience working on countless pieces of furniture. In addition to structural repairs, we specialize in saving old finishes. We are among the very few in the region who routinely employ French polishing: a laborious and difficult to master method of shellac application unrivaled for its combination of repairability, clarity, and elegance.

Repair.

Loose table leg? Moving damage? Veneer loose or missing? Or maybe you have a chest of drawers that doesn't open as smoothly as it used to? Kerrigan Restoration is ready to make sure your furniture is structurally sound to provide you years of service. After all, no one should have to sit on a wobbly chair.

Restore.

We pride ourselves in doing the best to salvage original parts as well as original finishes whenever possible. Restoring helps to preserve much of your piece's character and value so we'll only refinish when absolutely necessary. And most of our finishes are repairable, making them ideal should problems arise in the future. We can also work to reverse damage from water, fire, and smoke.

Touch Ups.

Sometimes all your furniture might need is a good touch up here and there. We don't believe in turning a small problem into a big project. From removing water marks to your pet's latest gnaw session, we're happy to provide you with a range of solutions to fit your needs.
