The Kennedy's Refinishing Story

Patrick Kennedy has been working with wood since he was a teenager.  His first job was at a used furniture store in Edmonds, where he persuaded the owner to set up a refinishing shop for him to run.  He liked the work so much that in 1980 he started his own business: Kennedy’s Refinishing.  Two years later he married Kathleen, and for more than 37 years they have been working side by side at their business while raising 10 kids.

Their business has always been home based with a workshop just outside the family home.  For the first 17 years, they operated in Lynnwood, doing work almost exclusively for Antique Distributors of Seattle.  Those years hold fond memories of working on beautiful and unique furnishings imported from Europe.  In 1997, the business relocated to Arlington and opened up to the public as well as continuing its work for antique dealers including Antique Liquidators of Seattle, Rosa Mundi’s of Edmonds, Whidbey Island Antiques, Madhatter Antiques of Woodinville, Mardini’s Antiques of Snohomish and Aurora Antique Pavillion.  They have restored thousands of pieces of furniture for clients in the Pacific Northwest.

The Kennedys are proud of their reputation for honesty and excellent craftsmanship.

“I had a great experience with Pat. I brought in an accent table from the 1920’s that was extremely rickety. Pat disassembled it, glued and reassembled and now my once rickety but beautiful table is a great solid piece of furniture again that will be around for another hundred years. I highly recommend.”
