The following testimonial was sent to Julie G. Berman, of Wayfair Furniture, in Boston. Wayfair hired Cecilia to repair a piece of furniture for Jen, one of their customers in New Jersey.

Hi Julie,

As promised, I wanted to follow up with you after my appointment with Cecilia yesterday. As you know, I was extremely hesitant about the door on the china cabinet and the chip on the table. To be completely honest, I was even more nervous that you had to find a technician, randomly, that you had never used before.

It’s not fair to refer to Cecilia as a technician … she is an artist. Her work is phenomenal and I honestly can’t even find the spots she fixed because they blend so amazingly. While watching her work (and trying not to hover), I was so impressed on how meticulous her entire process was. I truthfully sat there dumbfounded and I wish I was still in Boston so you could drive over and see it for yourself.

My sister and the property manager for my builder stopped over last night to see her work and were equally as amazed. They both took her business card and intend on using her in the near future. I also intend to hire her in the future as well to work on another piece of furniture.

I am extremely satisfied and feel like you sent me the top person in her field. In discussion, she actually travels for her business. I would recommend you use Cecilia in other locations if you see fit.

Lastly, I wanted to mention she is such a lovely woman and I really enjoyed talking with her and having her in my home. I’ve had many people do work here since I closed on my new home and she is, by far, the most pleasant, personable and professional.

We had just moved to this area from Boston and the movers damaged MANY pieces of furniture during the move. Not priceless antiques mind you, but irreplaceable family heirlooms that held sentimental value. We had little hope of finding someone who could fix these items that would cost thousands to replace. How lucky we were to find Cecilia “the furniture angel”. After working diligently for hours and seeing the high caliber of her work, I would call her a true artist. Her attention to detail, commitment to doing quality workmanship and the knowledge of her trade set her apart in a world full of average. She is a treasure and I would recommend her highly.

Kudos to Cecilia for the beautiful caning repair of my rocker. The seat was totally frayed and now I have this beautiful work of art that is functional, too. I would recommend her, for not only is she very talented, she is gentle and caring to work with too.

Got the word that our relatives from Dallas are making great time … should be arriving around 9:00PM. Thanks again for getting our sofa up and running for company. So appreciate your quick response and all your time and effort. You were an angel for us today. You’re the best!

Thanks seems so inadequate for the wonderful restoration to my Louis IV Armoire. Although is was the bottom portion only, the water damage seemed like an insurmountable task. It looked terrible. When you were recommended to me and I shared my story, you immediately responded and within a week you were at my home with your “bag of magic tools”, stains and sprays. I am so grateful to have met you, and as one artist to another I am so impressed with the quality of your work.

I appreciate talent and dedication when I see it, and you certainly possess the qualities of a “Master Furniture Restorer”.

Thank you for repairing our pine table and restoring it to its original beauty. Our knotty pine table top (not veneer) was damaged – plus a couple of surface dents as well – due to an errant piece of lumber that fell on the top of the table. You built up the damaged areas and blended the coloring so that the table looks like there was never any damage. This is the second time we have had to call you for your help. The first time was in 2008 when our Maine Cottage cocktail table was damaged and you did a great job then as well.

Thank you again.

I just want to thank you for the job you did on my great grandmother’s chair that you recently refurbished! It had been living up in the attic where I have forgotten about it. My husband had you do your magic with it as a surprise birthday present and I couldn’t have been happier.

I am also the owner of the “puppy” who devoured the chairs you show on your website. That was nine years ago and the “puppy” and chairs are still with us. The chairs had been in my husband’s family for over 50 years, and we were afraid that they were beyond repair. However, we found you and your amazing talent and now it is impossible to tell they were ever chewed up.

I want to thank you, Cecilia, for the beautiful restoration of my kitchen set. The cuts in the wood table leg were very deep, and I was very upset that we had damaged the set after two short years. Thank you for the repair to the wood. I was so surprised; I cannot even tell which leg was damaged. Thank you for saving my table and restoring it back like new. I am so happy to find someone for home wood repairs.

Thank you.

I brought an antique table and chair to Home Enhancements after several attempts to make the repairs myself. I was quite pleased with Cecilia’s professional approach and timely repair service. She does excellent work! The furniture has been given new life.

We purchased our sculpture from a gallery in 2005. It is a limited edition signed and numbered ceramic piece created by artists Carlos & Albert. One day someone knocked it over, and it landed on its ears which were broken off and shattered into pieces.

A friend suggested we call Cecilia. They said she had repaired many of their various works of art as well as other items in their home and had done a fabulous job. We met Cecilia and entrusted her with our ‘Rhino Bird catcher.’ When she delivered the repaired sculpture we examined it carefully.

There was no sign that anything had ever happened. The repairs Cecilia made were absolutely invisible! We would trust her with anything!

This letter is being written as a thank you and a strong recommendation to any potential customers. Cecilia, you are a life saver! You have now come to the rescue twice for me when a piece of furniture and a pre-finished door was damaged. Your ability to make blemishes go away is incredible. Thanks again.

I have called upon Cecilia’s services many times over the last 7 years with my client base. She has repaired cane and rush seats, touched up the wood in the chairs, in addition to repairing a piece of Roseville pottery and a cut glass dish. Cecilia’s work is always top notch! She is prompt, professional and reasonably priced for the lost arts she practices. I would recommend Cecilia’s work to any and every one! Her skills are many - trust her with your family heirlooms!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you once again for the beautiful restoration of my chairs. The “new” chairs complete my kitchen! It was great meeting you, and I hope to someday discover another “misfit” piece of furniture that is need of a little TLC. Thanks again.
