Today's Post is Brought to you by the word: "Reduniture" (vb.Re-dun-i-tur)

  Re-whatiture???  Don't try googling it or looking it up in the dictionary (if you still own one) because you won't find it.  Reduniture is taking your current furniture and revamping it to give it new life and character.  Everyone has a piece of furniture in their house that they are sick of, don't know why they ever bought it or like the style but hate the color.  Reduniture is what we do to "that" piece of furniture by giving it new life.  For example, our friend couldn't stand the sight of this pepto-pink dresser (which was one of her "diy" fixes)and was considering purchasing a new dresser.  She didn't want to spend $400 (at minimum) to get a lifeless, laminate, cheaply-made, everyone has one, dresser.  So she asked us to professionally transform it from this....

to this....

  We took her 10-year-old daughter's old dresser and revamped it to a fuchsia and black eye-catching piece.  We boxed out the flat, rectangular drawers to add depth and softened them by adding flourishes around the knobs.  The black glaze brought out every imperfection in the wood to naturally age this piece and added tons of character to it.  The design on top was hand painted by our artista, Amanda, who is an incredible free-hand artist. 

  We saved our friend the hassle of searching for a "reasonable priced" dresser, hauling it home and then having to put it together.  Which I still don't understand how consumers get suckered into paying hundreds of dollars for furniture to take it home in a box, get into a fight with their spouse over constructing it and then having it fall apart one year later...Anyway, we saved our friend the hassle, gave her a 100% original piece for 2/3 of the price of a new dresser.  So our words of wisdom to you....go with reduniture instead of buying new.  You will save lots of money, get an original piece full of character and life while updating your space.  It's a win-win situation for your furniture, you and us!  Plus isn't going green the thing to do..
