WELCOME BACK, CHRIS AND HOLLY, BARBO FURNITURE!
The Barbo furniture company has been an active business in Bellingham for most of the past 80 years. Originally started by Chris Barbo’s father and uncle, it had to close during WWII, and also briefly in 1978 when Chris’s dad decided to retire. Eventually, Chris and his wife Holly opened a furniture store in Bellingham. They no longer run the store, but still build pieces on commission. Most of their current business is repairing and refinishing fine furniture and antiques. Some of you may have seen their presentation on laminating veneer in 2014. In this program, Chris and Holly will talk about how they do furniture repair and refinishing. They’ll go into lots of detail and share some of their secrets!
