It's the Law: How To Decide Whether (or Not!) to Makeover Your Latest Secondhand Find

Comment of the Day

Pin it button big

In the comment thread on today's (very lovely!) Before & After project post, one of our smart community members laid down the law. I'm talking about the just-written furniture makeover law and it's worth a quick read...

Take it away, Virginia:

Iconic, designer originals and high quality, in good condition pieces are appropriate for conservation efforts, knock offs and badly damaged non-designer pieces are candidates for conversion.

This is the law! Okay, just kidding about that part, but there are always about a million derivative pieces for every style and just keeping them out of a landfill is a good act.

Have you got any thoughts on possible amendments to what will forever be referred to as "Virginia's Law" at Apartment Therapy?
