Furniture Repair and Restoration

Bernie Kronen offers an  extensive antique furniture restoration service with more than 25 years hands-on experience working with all types of antique furniture. With an extensive network of timber and hardware suppliers Bernie can bring your beautiful antique furniture back to life. Keeping the original finishes where possible, your piece can be repaired and polished.

If your piece has been painted and needs to be stripped, repaired, re-polished and brought back to its original glory. All work is lovingly hand-done by Bernie using skills and methods learned over the last 25 year with respect to the craftsmen who originally produced your furniture.

Don’t hesitate to contact Bernie to arrange an assessment of the work required to bring your furniture back to life.

Bespoke Furniture

There are times when you really want a beautiful antique piece of furniture, but you just can’t find just the right thing – either the size is wrong, or the timber isn’t quite right. Consider having a piece made to your specifications to fit that perfect spot in your home. Talk with me about what you’d like to have made, and ask to see some hand-crafted pieces already done.

Looking for something specific? Get in touch and let me know what you’re looking for – I may already have something stored away that would be perfect! If not, I can certainly keep an eye out when attending auctions and house sales.

The safe delivery of your furniture is important to me. Local delivery is negotiable. For pieces travelling further afield you will need to make your own arrangements, but please feel free to talk with me about any special requirements.


Payment is due on collection, however for larger restoration jobs or custom made furniture, a deposit may be required prior to work commencing. You can pay by cash, direct bank deposit or pay by cheque (which will need to clear prior to collection).

Bernie Kronen is a local craftsman, lovingly restoring antique furniture by hand using traditional methods and materials. With over 25 years experience, he sources items locally and is well known at auctions throughout the region. He also builds custom pieces, works with local business owners (he supplied much of the furniture you see at Ballina Manor, a local award winning B&B) and repairs and restores furniture to bring each piece back to its former glory.

In a former life, he spent 20 years in the Australian Army and still serves in the Reserves. He has lived in Lismore in the beautiful Northern Rivers of NSW since 1991 where he and his (then) wife did the tree-change move from Sydney, and set about restoring much of their Edwardian weatherboard home in Lismore Heights. Bernie continues to live in that house, which is now very full of beautiful furniture!
