Furniture Maintenance

Beware the simple chandelier!

About 3 times a month I will get a call, usually by someone who is quite upset, asking if I would be able to come over and touch up damage on the top of a formal dining room table.  When I ask what has happened they explain that the chandelier or a part of the chandelier has fallen on their table.  What most commonly has happened is that someone decided to clean the chandelier and discovered they can spin it on it base.  This allowed them to stand at the side of the table and simply spin the chandelier to clean it, one arm at a time.
