I love this quote I found while flipping through Better Homes and Gardens.
You don’t have to have the most expensive pieces to have a great room, and this is a great reminder of that fact! It may take a little more time to find or make pieces that are truly great, but if you can honestly say you love everything in a room, it is so worth it!

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
