About Bill Griffith


Bill Griffith is one of our country's most experienced craftsman, specializing in refinishing & upholstering. Having started learning the trade in 1951 in a family owned business in California, he not only learned upholstering but also the restoration and repair of woods. He and his family moved to Texas in 1978 and has been established in the North Houston area giving quality service to all his Houstonian customers for over 25 years now. He still works with his family. His daughter, Darla, helps her dad with the business; and son, Dan runs a custom cabinetry shop; Griffith Wood Werks, right next door.

Company Profile

Griffith Refinishing was established in 1955 founded by Bill Griffith who learned the trade from his father. Refinishing, repairing furniture, & upholstering are his specialties. Darla, his daughter works at the company; she specializes in the artistic side of restoration such as touching up paintings, working on frames, and sculptures.


Bill has the honor of having two pieces he refinished on display in the White House; and while in California, he restored the Governor's desk used by Ronald Reagan, for the state capital. Bill has also done for the Catholic Diocese of Galveston for many years... restoring not only beautiful antique furniture but several priceless oil paintings. He has worked with numerous high profile decorators in his many years in the trade and understands what they want to accomplish.

Restoration & Refinishing

We put our time and care into every piece we work on. Everything refinished is done so by hand; the stripping of the old finish, the rubbing of the new finish, even when spraying the lacquer. Everything is quality controlled. From upholstery to pianos, sculptures, frames, antique sewing machines, clocks, and every other piece of furniture or decoration you can think of; we treat every piece as our own. It's been a tradition here at Griffith Refinishing for over 50 years. We value your antiques and we understand the sentimental value behind them.
