David Conary, founder and owner of Downeast Refinishing, has over 25 years experience in furniture refinishing, repair, and restoration. A Deer Isle native, he brings a Maine work ethic into every part of his business. Before returning to the Maine coast, Conary had been working in Maryland with antiques, as well as traditional and modern restoration techniques. "I started from the bottom. All I did in the beginning was strip furniture all day long. But it's been worth it. I've developed a process of my own, so I'm faster and more efficient."
David's experience brings both time-honored craftsmanship and modern methods together in a perfect blend. Pieces which come to him broken and with paint peeling are lovingly cared for until they are released with warmly glowing wood, and perhaps with a new leg or a complete complement of drawer pulls. Each piece that David works on is cared for like his own treasure, which clients from all walks of life appreciate, both corporate and individual. And when his clients are happy, David is too. "My reward is the satisfaction I get from people pleased with the results of my work."
Using state-of-the-art technology, Conary and his crew put real truth to the saying that "everything old is new again." Downeast Refinishing will return your aged armoire, which has seen better days, to its former glory. Due to their modern production techniques, Downeast Refinishing is able to offer these services to commercial and residential customers at much lower costs than one would expect, and certainly at a price below replacement.
Conary's clientele is far from being limited to Downeast Maine, as over 50% of his regular customers come from other states.
"I think the reason people keep coming back is because they really like the results we're able to achieve here with my own techniques which they can't seem to find elsewhere."
