Dan Oldejans

Master Finisher and Craftsman

Quality in Every Job

Kitchens and more kitchens is what we do. Better Than New Fine Furniture Repair was formed in 1998 in a Scottsdale 900 square foot apartment living room with a tool box, a few hand tools and a brief case. Dan Oldejans with his recent art degree tucked under his arm went out to conquer the Phoenix refinishing and repair market. Not the easiest at first with looking quite young and people being skeptical of his skill at such a tender age. Everyone always thinks of the “craftsman” as an older heavy set guy with a beard and an apron. Soon though after catching a few breaks from a few key furniture store managers Better Than New was off and running. For the first five years Better Than New focused on retail furniture store clientele.

In 2007 Better Than New Kitchens was born, a kitchen refacing and refinishing division of Better Than New. News of this amongst local designers traveled fast and currently Better Than New Kitchens does as many as 30 kitchen remodels per year with a special refacing team devoted to the same caliber of excellence that Better Than New is known for in its furniture restoration work. Each job is unique in the kitchen refacing world so it requires detail and precision.
