Bill Oakley

Owner

Oakley Restoration & Finishing, llc has evolved over 27 years from Bill Oakley’s first antique furniture restoration business, Phoenix Restoration, which was based in Brooklyn, New York.

After relocating in 1994 to New Milford in Litchfield County Connecticut, Bill doubled the company’s size and expanded to a two man shop. Over the years he continued to grow the business, and Oakley now employs 3 full-time Restoration Artisans in addition to himself.

Scott has been at this game for as long as Bill Oakley and has developed such excellent skills at not only specialized repairs on antiques but he can fool any expert with his old looking finishes! Scott has the patience to take on those difficult projects involving surgical-like skills.

“Great fun working with you guys. We think of your fine work every time I wind the clock, unlocking that amazing little lock you found and installed, or open the "lowboy" for some dinner items! Delightful to find folks who still appreciate and preserve the great American furniture traditions! Best Regards for the holidays! Dave and Kathie Miller”
