Welcome to the world of taking something old and making like new again!
In this day and age of reducing waste and our impact on earth, refurbishing furniture is an excellent way fix and reuse quality items that just need a little TLC.
Refinishing furniture requires several skills. Furniture repair needs a knowledge of carpentry to fix broken items, such as loosening stuck drawers, or re-setting legs. Refinishing involves stripping away paint or the old finish, sanding, and applying a coat of paint or stain.
Some items might require reupholstering; the replacement and recovering of fabric-covered items. Some pieces of furniture might need all three tasks to bring them back to life, while others need just one or two.
At it's finest
Larry Hughey's Interior Refurbishing LLC was started in 1990. I was home based for ten years. In 2000 I asked my father if I could bring my shop down to his shop at 5335 N. Winthrop Ave. Indianapolis, IN. He agreed. In 2010 my father passed the family business down to me. I took the business and moved to Carmel, IN. We have been in our location in Carmel, IN ever since.
Hughey - Hartman
Two last names
Emerson D. Hughey and Ernest P. Hartman are the two names associated with this business which was started in 1921. Orginally the business was located at 840 E. 64th Street in Indianapolis, IN. This is where I grew up. It was by the Whistle Stop which was a great place to get a sandwich. Also I short walk to Lobraico's Drug store. Lobraico's is very historic and was started in 1925. Lobraico's closed in 1990 when Mike sold the building to David and Ellen Matthews who owned Chelsea's. My father continued to grow in Broad Ripple. He owned a picture framing company with Tom Altepeter called the Village Framery. He started another business called the Town Stichery where they sold crewel, yarn and framed needlepoint custom pieces.
