TIP OF THE TRADE:

Road to Recovery: Stay in the mindset that everything is repairable. Look for pieces with good bones whether it be carved wooden frames or a unique size and shape that you can’t find in big commerical storefronts. These pieces can be transformed simply by changing the stain on the wood or changing the color entirely! Pair that with new fabric, complimentary trim and a piece that looked like it was heading to a savlage yard is now on a Road to Recovery.
