Turning sows’ ears into silk purses, and uncovering the diamond in the rough is what Anna and In-Home does best.

We found this vintage Oriental buffet, or sideboard, […]

Set of metal door knockers have been sitting around, waiting for a little upgrade. A quick coat of Briwax changes the appearance of these welcome signs!

    The lives furniture pieces lead are sometimes really fascinating. The more you work with it, the more you discover. When this one was lifted up on the loading dock, we immediately loved the red alligatored paint. When the time came to start sanding and smoothing it out, we discovered just how many colors […]
