After hearing time and time again that no one would touch their beams Mr and Mrs Young came to us for help. They were desperate to lighten up their waxy, black beams and freshen up those darker rooms. We were more than happy to refinish their beams to a beautiful standard. As you can see the beams made the rooms look both dark and small, but now they look bright and spacious. Mr and Mrs Young have chosen a natural shade of oak to serve as a neutral background for their furniture and decor. With no mess or damage they could put their furniture back and enjoy the rooms the very same day! I do hope they enjoy these rooms now they have been given a new lease of life. This is what they had to say: We are absolutely delighted with the transformation of our dark, waxy, beams to their original light oak colour which has lightened up all the rooms, making each one a pleasure to enter. Nicholas is extremely knowledgeable about old timber-framed buildings and he and his team were professional, efficient and tidy in all the work they did! It was a pleasure to deal with “Back from Black”. Thank you so much for all you’ve done to re-vitalise our cottage!
