Saw these treasures piled up on the side of the road the other day when I was running late to school. I would have loved to make those twin headboards into benches! And the table and chairs had so much potential… Too bad I was late, it was raining, and I don’t have any more project space in my house right now!
Some lucky rehabber really hit the jackpot!

I love breathing new life into furniture on its last leg!
I went to UC Berkeley for undergrad and am currently a graduate student in the Communication department at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA.
I started getting into collecting vintage things while I was in college at Berkeley. It all started with vintage designer samples, and hunts for "new" things led me to more and more stores that carried vintage crystal and china (loving this stuff is in my DNA-- I'm southern!) Looking for china led me to stores and markets that also carried furniture. As a college student, I couldn't afford ANY vintage pieces that were high quality, so I started buying stuff and fixing it up. How did I learn? Trial and (lots of) error.
This isn't my first venture into the blog-o-sphere. After undergrad, I modeled and wrote the blog The Model Who Eats in order to document the foods I loved during my travels and promote a healthy lifestyle.
I love rehabbing pieces for the spaces I design. Check me out on Instagram @chair_candy and @RoadsideRehab
