Cedar chest restored! Our client’s grandmother gave her this cedar chest and over the years, it had literally fallen apart. The feet were rotted, chunks were missing and the bottom had dropped out. After fixing and reinforcing the structure, the exterior got a good cleaning and sanding, then seal...

Feel like you have a lost cause on your hands? Don’t give up! The damage on this set of side tables was significant - water damage, missing veneer, puppy chews and more. But almost everything can be fixed, restored to what it was intended to look like.
These tables are from the 1940s, made by th...

It's been a busy summer! Here's one of the projects we've been working on. A pine coffee table that needed some attention. We added some dimension by using a darker base stain with a warmer stain layered over it - deeper stains make the grain pop and add character. It can turn something simple in...

Furniture Transformations

Why spend the money to fix something old and beat up when you can spend less and buy it new? Because that old, worn chair (or table or bed…) is somebody’s grandpa’s or aunt's or best friend's. Because it was loved. Because it was built well, with quality that's hard to find these days. It has history, a legacy you can’t buy at a big box store. And it’s worth it to continue the legacy - for your family or for somebody else’s. 
That’s why we do what we do. Fixing furniture might seem silly, but it's significant to fix something, to keep it alive, to bring some joy to your home and your heart. We at JKB Refinish put our hearts into every project we do. Let us help you continue your legacy. 

Do you have a special piece of furniture that has been in the family for years? Or maybe something you found recently that has good bones but needs some fixing up? With a little time, creativity, and love, these items can find new life and be transformed to meet your needs and style. Each furniture piece you present to JKB Refinish will be customized to fit your taste. Not sure what you'd like the end result to be? We'd be happy to provide you with a free design consultation.

Family-owned and operated, JKB Refinish is located in Merritt, NC - bringing furniture refinishing and restoration to Pamlico County, NC. We live in beautiful surroundings outdoors here in Eastern NC and you deserve your home and furniture to feel as beautiful and welcoming to you. Let us help you accomplish that.

Paint, stain, stripping off the old layers and putting on the new - we'll plan your project with you so you'll love the final result. We even do custom repurpose and build projects. If you can imagine it, we'll work with you to create it. Even if your project doesn't technically fall into the realm of "furniture", let us know what you're thinking and we may be able to work that out with you as well.

Please call or text us at 401-323-8598 or e-mail us at to find out when we can get started on transforming your furniture into what you've always dreamed of. While we strive to respond to you as quickly as possible, e-mail is generally the best way to reach us. When reaching out, please include photos of your prospective project as well as a detailed description of its current condition and what you'd like done to it.  The more information we have, the better equipped we are to give you a good estimate of the cost involved. Let's work together to create the vision for your furniture items!

Pick-up and delivery are available for a fee, based on distance from our shop and size of the project. We are also available to do in-person estimates for no extra charge if needed.
