Which varnish for my project ?
The new water-based and hybrid finishes are very sturdy and resistant. The water-based varnishes, which contains aluminum oxide, offer a very hard finish and abrasion protection. The hybrid finishes contains an oil base compound mixed with water molecules and can be used as a water-based product. You will notice though that if you want to obtain an amber antique look to your project, this may be your best
choice, especially that this product is
odor free. All these finishes can be
applied by brush and roller in a
domestic application and by air spray
in commercial situations

Rick and Gilles Lamoureux.
"M. Lamoureux suggested a denim fabric for our teenager’s sofa bed. Wow what a great idea !, especially since our new up-holstered couch had sewn-in pockets for our remote controls. Thanks Docteur du Meuble !"
"We are in our 70’s and my husband and I were baffled by the assembly instructions on our newly acquired furniture from IKEA. Thanks to M Lamoureux, he was able to come to our home and assemble our desk in a very short time; I am happy that the Docteur du Meuble really do make house calls !"
"A special thanks to Docteur du Meuble. We needed to have our living room sofa re-located in our basement. Because of a structural limit in our basement stairwell, moving it downstairs was impossible. Rick was able to disassemble our sofa and re-assemble it in our basement. Just simply amazing !"
IN THE BEGINNING…
Gilles Lamoureux was hired as furniture refinisher/repair technician with Colonial Furniture in Ottawa in 1964. With 28 years of experience, he created his own company in 1992 as 2835029 Canada Inc The Furniture Doctor in the Ottawa region. The company quickly grew popular because of a high demand for in-house repairs at affordable prices. The Ottawa Citizen, a local newspaper, posted a full page coverage on the Furniture Doctor high demand for in-home repair and services (see photo).
