The St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Cedar Rapids, IA recently completed a refurbishment project with Iowa Prison Industries. The church wanted to update old, worn out furniture, but decided the pieces still had years of use left in them. The refurbished pieces included a chest, side chairs, a table with two pull out leaves, a sofa, several floor chairs and a library table.
IPI's Furniture Restoration program is a great option for an organization that needs old furniture brought back to life. Restoration saves our customers money by not having to purchase an entirely new set of furniture, rather old furniture is made to feel like new. It is also doing good things for the environment, because furniture restoration keeps used furniture out of landfills.
Member and volunteer for St. Paul’s United, Lois Mather, communicated with the IPI team throughout the project. The furniture was stripped, repaired and refinished. The finished pieces look brand new, and will last and fill the church’s needs for many years to come.
“The pieces are lovely and we are most pleased and excited about their appearance,” Mather said, “Please extend our gratitude to the men and women who made this transformation possible.”
