But like any place built over 100 years ago, homeowner Katrina’s 1900 Colonial Revival house needed some updating — especially in the living room. While it had large windows, the space felt dark and uninviting because of the old gray carpeting, dark valances, clunky ceiling fan, and striped beige ’70s-era wallpaper.

Sorry, Parents: Nobody Wants the Family “Heirlooms”
In a modern world currently intrigued by minimalism, there’s something that all three adult generations can agree on: the problem of dealing with the collections curated (hoarded?) by our family members. From younger boomers and Gen X’ers sandwiched between their aging/dying parents and their own children to millennials trying to gently manage expectations (and their own limited budgets and storage space) without hurt feelings, the message is crystal clear.

The Ten Commandments of Buying Used Furniture
You see a chair on the curb. It’s sitting right in front of your building and it’s free. Or, you’re at the thrift store and spy a cheap sofa. But something holds you back. You’re just. not. quite. sure. If only there were guidelines — holy reminders if you will — of things to keep in mind while looking at used furniture. How do you decide if it’s the right thing to re-do? Or if you should run in the other direction?

7 Ways to Repurpose a Vintage Dresser (And Gain More Storage in Every Room)
Stylish vintage dressers are a dime a dozen at antique stores and flea markets. I just came back from the Brimfield Antique Show, and let me tell you, those fields were positively brimming with awesome dressers. They seemed so much easier to find than other pieces of furniture, that at one point, I started to wonder why we all don’t just turn one of these dressers into the vanity / kitchen island / tv stand we’re searching for? Turns out, we absolutely can.

Make It Last: How to Update & Repair Vintage Wood Furniture
We’ve all heard the phrase “they don’t make ’em like they used to,” which in my experience, cannot be more true when it comes to quality-made furniture. Dovetailed drawers or burled wood veneer seems to have been replaced by the convenience of assemble-yourself, particle-board furniture.

Before & After: Vintage Console TV Converted Into Swank Bar
It’s funny to remember how large, bulky, yet sometimes stylish televisions were before the era of HDTVs took displays from the floor onto our walls. We still remember our childhood 80’s RCA floor console TV taking up about the same amount of room as 40″ HDTV flat panels all lined up. Sometimes you’ll still find one of these wonderful relics of TV’s past in basements, garages or thrift stores, many not in working order.
