    We were extremely pleased with the great job Denis did in refinishing the table edges and arms of our kitchen dinette set. He was prompt, personable and very skilled. The set looks brand-new again. We would certainly recommend him to anyone. It was a pleasure to meet him.

    If you are looking for a top-notch job Denis is the person you need to contact. Had a white rattan dining table with chairs that wanted a color change to a dark walnut. The set looks amazing is like having a new dining table. He even changed the upholstery of the chairs for a reasonable price. I highly recommend Denis for his quality workmanship.

    My coffee table was dropped during a recent move. I called Denis who came to the house to give me an estimate . The repair was scheduled within a week. Denis was timely,professional, and assured me he could repair my tables and I would never know they had been damaged. I cannot say enough about this guy, what an artist!!! I am absolutely thrilled.the table looks like showroom perfection. Marsha

    I had Denis refinish my father's Antique desk. It is about 150 years old. It is so beautiful! Memories keep flowing in!! He even fixed it.
    Thank you Denis.

    Denis is not only quite knowledgeable and personable, he is also a master at his craft. He refurbished a child's table and chair set that my father used as a child. It was 80 years old. When Denis was finished with the pieces, they looked as good as I can imagine they did when new, 80 years ago.
    Although he is far from us in Brandon, his craftsman work is well worth it.
    We look forward to using his skills for more pieces we own.
    Thanks, Denis!

    You can trust your precious family heirloom furniture to Denis. He matched color and finish perfectly. Furniture was handled with great care.

    Denis refinished the arm of my dining room chair after my Malipoo puppy had fun chewing on it.
    It now looks like new & there is no evidence that Darcy had used it as a teething device.
    Denis was excellent to work with & I highly recommend him.

  • *****

    I want to add another positive review to all the other reviews which applaud the excellent work. We have a very large two piece large mahogany china closet which was damaged in a move. Denis was the only one who would come out and look at it before quoting after requesting pictures. He said we would not know it had been repaired afterwards. He was correct. If we did not know where the damage occurred, we would not know from the repair/finish. You probably will find him more expensive than others for this work, but in our case we felt the higher cost was worth it.

  • *****

    Denis is unbelieveable. He restored two giant mirrors that I thought I would have to throw away. He made them more beautiful than they were originally. A nice man and a pleasure to do business with. Fast turn around time. Don't hesitate to use him

    Denis's skills are far superior to any any wood craftsman that I have ever used . As a owner of antique asian' Victorian thru Mid Century Modern I would trust him to refresh, repair,or restore any of them. He truly a wood artist! It took days not weeks, and he even came to me to give advice, anyone can give 5 stars Denis truly earned them! Frank Dunedin

    So very happy with Denis' work on our antique mahogany buffet that got damaged in our move. He responded immediately to our request for a bid. He came to our home and was most pleasant, knowledgeable, and thoughtful. The piece is extremely heavy so Denis was able to repair it right in our home. The buffet looks great, with the molding that was missing replaced to match perfectly, scratches gone, a broken door that works great now, and the piece no longer rocks on the floor. Denis was very responsive, coming out soon after we arranged for his services and was always ensuring that he was fulfilling our needs. I would use Denis' services again whenever needed and would highly recommend him.

  • *****

    Denis took a beaten up table with scratches, chips and stains and made it look brand new. Well worth the price to keep my table! Very quick turnaround too. I recommend and would use again.

  • *****

    My wife and I recently purchased a furnished condo in Sand Key. The dining room table was ebony and did not match the chairs. We wanted to have the table stripped and re-stained. Being from NY and new to the area, we were skeptical with who to entrust this large project to. We contacted Denis, he explained the process and we immediately realized that we made the right choice. He was professional, timely and reasonably priced. The end result...the table was amazing! It was exactly like we envisioned it and it looked brand new. If you ever need furniture refinished or repaired, save your time and energy and use Denis for your needs. He is meticulous and he is not satisfied unless you are.

  • *****

    Repaired a broken cross rail on a cherry bed. I don't know hoe he did it but it looks like new. Great Job! Highly recommend him.

  • *****

    My very traditional cherry dresser and chest were beautifully updated to coordinate with my new coastal white bed and night stand. Denis left the tops in the natural cherry. This completely "popped" both pieces. They are truly eye-catching and beautifully done. I know I have other pieces which will be refinished in the future and there is no question who will do the work! What a great job done by a great professional!

    Denis’ work is unmatched. He is more an artist than anything else. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

  • *****

    I have a very nice cherry table that was damaged when I moved to St.Pete. It looked awful with big chip in it, the sides were scraped and the top was gouged in many places. I never thought it would look nice again. Denis took the table and the leaves and when he brought them back I didn't think it was the same table. I can't tell where any of the damage was. Amazing! He does great work, shows up at the when he says he will and has very fair prices. I would highly recommend him!

  • *****

    2 Antique Tables restored beautifully! One was from my mother-in-law and one was my grandmother. Denis- your workmanship is terrific. And your timing couldn't be better- Picked them up on Monday, Delivered on Thursday! Thanks you Denis! Anne S.

    Denis refinished our 25 year old solid oak dining table and four chairs. His work is exceptionally good. Needless to say, we would recommend him without hesitation.

    Denis repaired two antique pieces for us. My mother's cherry buffet was damaged in Hurricane Irma with water damage from sitting in water when our roof blew off. The base swelled and the joints separated. My wife's grandmother's dining room chair back broke right at the seat and we thought it might be irreparable. Denis picked up our chair and said he could do the buffet restoration at our home. The work was perfect. You would never know the chair had been broken and the buffet looks beautiful again. Price was fair too. Thanks Denis.

    We had custom cabinets installed a few years back but they were never properly sealed. Water washed the stain off so they looked horrible. Didn't want to completely redo all the cabinets just needed the ones messed up fixed. Only found one person who could confidently repair them. I am extremely impressed and happy. Nice guy, professional. Shows up on time, cleans up. Definitely talented. Contact Denis Temali 727-504-4657 at clearwaterfurnitureresto

    Denis's Furniture Repair and Restoration is fabulous! I have my great-grandmothers antique glider rocking chair which, unfortunately, got broken during the move. When I called Denis, he was in my area and came to our condo in 10 minutes, no joke. He took the chair to his shop and brought it back to me two days later! I couldn't tell where the break in the rung or side scratches had been, Denis is that amazingly gifted.

  • *****

    Denis is amazing! He truly takes furniture repair and re-finishing to an art form. We use him for all of our design clients and he is always professional. Would highly recommend!

  • *****

    Denis did a fantastic job. My kitchen cabinet was burned by candles and low and behold it’s perfect. Looks brand new. He’s truly an artist.
    Thank you,

    I called Denis after houseguests inadvertently ruined the finish on two brand new end tables. In just over a week, he had the tables looking brand new again - and at a fraction of the cost of replacing even one! He is a true artist, and a pleasure to do business with. Thank you Denis!

    I contacted Denis to refinish a small writing desk that belongs to my Mother in Clearwater and has been in our family for many years. The desk had water damage from the hurricane which ruined the finish. It also had a piece of veneer missing from the front drawer. Denis did an amazing job restoring the desk to it's original beauty. My Mother is thrilled with his work and the desk looks beautiful! Denis finished the project and delivered the desk promptly and as promised. He is very professional and very skilled in his work. I would definitely contact Denis again for furniture refinishing and I highly recommend him. Thank you Denis!

    I called Denis in despair, in tears, I had set a foam piece on top of my cherry dining table, on that clean crystal I had washed. Removing the cover the rings from the glasses transferred the foam into rings on the table. I told him I ruined my table. He came out within one day, with no charge to take a look, and told me that he could repair it it, and it would look new----I said I will probably never be able to pay for it, but he was very reasonable. He brought my table back to me in two weeks!! I highly recommend him and I know I will be using him again---he told me in life those are fixable things---and he is so right!! I think he is professional, and would suggest him to anyone!! Thank you Denis, and your Dad too!!!

    Denis of Denis' Repair, Refinishing & Restoration is a highly skilled artisan and a perfectionist. His skills in refinishing and refurburshing wood furniture are truly exceptional. Denis refinished my black dining table and Hollywood Regency dining chairs that are black with gold detailing. The results were extraordinary. I am so pleased with them. He also restored a vintage Henredon pecan coffee table that had a few veneer losses and an old cigarette burn on the surface. It now looks perfect--with no evidence that any work was done to it. I plan to call upon Denis for a couple of other jobs in the future. His work is exceptional.

    Denis is a gentleman. He made our 30 year old Pine dining room table look like new. It is beautiful. He did the work just as agreed and delivered it to us on time.

    Denis expertly refinished a dining room table damaged by a tenant in a rental property of ours. He worked with me long distance to arrange the completion of the project and did so without disturbing the next tenant in the home. Thank you!

  • *****

    Wonder about all the five star ratings? Don't. They're all deserved. Denis refinished an aging teak credenza, beloved and well worn, and made it as new. He is a true artist and a fine person in the bargain. I can not recommend Denis too highly. As an aside, my location is no longer Valrico but downtown St. Pete. Denis, THANKS!

    Denis refinished a dining room table that belonged to my grandparents. It is a very special piece and Denis did an amazing job- it looks beautiful. I highly recommend him!

    Denis is a true professional dedicated craftsman who can take worn antique furniture and make it look new;amazing

  • *****

    Our grandson kicked a 5 inch diameter hole in the curved side of our antique kidney desk. II had previously used a long-established firm to repair damaged furniture, but the owner had retired. When I showed him pictures of the damage, he said it was beyond the skill of the company he usually recommended. Then I found Denis, who said he could fix it. He was prompt in estimating the job, which was quite reasonable. He returned with the finished piece sooner than he had proposed, and it was like new!!! both outside and inside. you can look at it, and knock on it, and cannot tell if it wasn't original. Bravo Denis!

  • *****

    Denis did an excellent repair on an antique settee that movers had made a mess of. It is now beautiful and once more functional. Highly recommend Denis's work.

  • *****

    Denis made needed repairs to my Mom's antique oak secretary cabinet, and did so in a timely and professional manner. He inspected the piece carefully before giving me a price, and then picked it up and delivered it. He completed the job as quoted, and I am quite pleased with his work. I would highly recommend him.

  • *****

    Denis just redid a kitchen table and chairs for me. I had several estimates and am happy I selected him. He promised a "factory finish" and he delivered. He is very professional and concerned about making his customer happy. Would definitely recommend him. When he delivered the table and chairs I gave him 4 other chairs to do.

  • *****

    Denis is the ultimate professional. He knows what to do and how long it will take. After having my furniture in a Pods storage unit for three years it was badly damaged. He was able to repair my furniture back to its original beauty. Every thing he touched looks new again. I couldn't have asked for more. His prices are very reasonable and I would highly recommend him.

  • *****

    Denis did an amazing job. I had my furniture in storage for 3 years and when it was delivered it was ruined. I had several very expensive pieces and he brought them back to life. They look as beautiful now as they did when I bought them. His pricing was very fair and his work was top rate. Highly recommend.

  • *****

    Professional with good work ethics. Will use him again. Great job to saving my pieces that were damaged in my move

    Denis just refurbished an old buffet that was my grandparents. He did a great job and was professional and very prompt, I would recommend him for any type of job.

  • *****

    I found Denis online and contacted him regarding restoration of an old antique dresser that had been passed down to me. The piece was generally faded and had numerous watermarks and signs of careless unnatural wear and tear. All I can say is WOW! Denis did a tremendous job restoring the piece and bringing back its original character and charm. Denis was professional in his approach, grasped exactly what we were looking to have done, and far exceeded our expectations. I would not hesitate to call on him again as he is definitely an artist at his craft.

  • *****

    Denis was so professional right from the start and he exceeded my expectations. I had a very large piece that had a curved front damaged in our move. He repaired the curve, the bottom, and the groove for the glass doors. You cannot tell the piece was ever damaged and it only took 1 week. He is awesome and his work speaks for itself.

  • *****

    Thank you Denis for doing an excellent job refinishing my dining room table and chairs. I brought a set of scan design style chairs and dining table home from my parents house. the set had been in constant use for 50 years and was discolored and faded. Denis managed to strip, sand and stain all pieces so the matched again. It is now a beautiful show piece.

    After our cleaning service accidentally damaged the top of a large Henkel Harris dining room table, they sought several furniture repair services to correct the damage. The first using a toxic chemical spray inside the dining room literally left me in the ER and the fire department trying to clear the fumes from halls of the condo building.

    Fortunately, they then learned of Denis's Furniture Repair and Restoration. Denis is a true craftsman and professional when it comes to restoring fine furniture. He took the large table and refinished the top. The workmanship is exceptional. In addition, he performed the work in about a week, which is most reasonable. We could not more highly recommend his and his company. I don't know the exact cost of the work by Denis, but the initial numbers I saw were highly competitive for the quality of work required and performed.

  • *****

    Wow.....our antique dining table was damaged from a water leak & scratched from use....We called Denis & he was very prompt giving us exact estimate and timeline on pick up delivery. The table came back gorgeous & we are now scheduling to have the other dining pieces refurbished because of his quality craftsmanship !!
    Couldn't be happier with the results!!

  • *****

    Dennis did an outstanding job on the repair and refinishing of our double front entry doors with etched glass. He is the consummate professional, very reliable, fairly priced and extremely knowledgeable with any woodworking, plastering and servicing of fine furniture. He is extremely conscientious and holds quality control of paramount concern.

  • *****

    I would absolutely recommend Denis for any and all furniture repair ... Denis was punctual, professional and did a wonderful job refinishing two wooden tables.

  • *****

    Dennis is Amazing! First he refinished our 14 year old kitchen and bar cabinets to make them look brand new! Then he was able to add a wood vent to a door to resolve an air flow situation. He has also repaired dry wall and restained a mirror and vanity in a bathroom to compliment the updated decor. I cant say enough great things about his honesty, timelines and talent. I would reccomend him to anyone! Thanks Dennis:)

    Denis just refinished a kitchen table top for me. The table now looks even better than when I first bought it. Not only does he do amazing work, he is very professional and a pleasure to work with. He went out of his way to come on a Saturday to make it more convenient for me, to pick the table top up and deliver it when finished again on a Saturday. I would highly recommend his services.

    Denis was a find. My mother's Stickley hutch is over 60 years old and due to a poor decision on our part we let a consignment shop take it. They did not cover it coming or going, then they stored it for a week in an unaircondition facility. Horrors when I saw it but Denis put it back together. We will never allow it out of our sight again. We just have to replace the keyhole which the consignment shop lost or plucked out. We had Denis due a coffee table and a small table which all are over 60 years old. Denis does exceptional work.

  • *****

    I cannot speak highly enough about Denis and his work! He recently did a dining room table and four chairs for me and I am absolutely thrilled with the result! He is professional, kind, skilled and I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family. Thanks again, Denis!! I love my new table and chairs.

    Denis refurnished a dining room table and four chairs for me recently. It is so gorgeous when it was returned to me I cried! I felt so comfortable dealing with Denis, he was kind, prompt, courteous and professional. Most importantly, the table and chairs look like a brand new show piece for my home! Thanks, Denis. I am referring all my friends and family to you.

    We can't say enough about our experience with Denis's Furniture Repair. We have been searching for someone skilled enough to repair extensive damage done to our double front doors for more than one year. The doors are wood with lead glass inserts. Our dog chewed a good deal of the molding and framing as well as put deep gouges on the inside of the doors. Denis replaced all of the interior molding, as well as re-stained, resurfaced and varnished the inside and outside of both doors. This required several days of back and forth to allow for the coats of stain and varnish to dry. Denis and his assistant were extremely diligent in getting the work done timely, professionally and beautifully. As far as communication, professionalism and fairness of price he gets an A!! Most importantly, our doors look brand new and we are so very pleased with his work. Additionally, he is also a skilled furniture restorer, very talented artisan, carpenter, does extensive plaster work and does gorgeous custom painting of murals. We would certainly recommend his services.

  • *****

    What a stroke of luck to find Denis. He's a fine craftsman who was attentive to my concerns about minuscle knicks and chips in my new kitchen cabinets. His prompt response and service were much appreciated. CGL

    Denis has an eye to strive for perfection. He is the best in home repairs and touch-ups. I highly recommend him.

    To Whom it may Concern,

    Recently we moved from Chicago to Florida with the majority of our furniture.

    Unfortunately a cherrywood wine cooler had a deep chip gouge and my lateral file cabinet had a deep scratch.

    Dennis Temali came in and restored both pieces to new looking status. His quality of artistic refinishing is unmatched and I would highly recommend him.

    Feel free to contact me through Dennis if you like.
