Talk about trash to treasure.

Local artisans offered their wares at a recent pop-up shop of over 100 pieces of “refreshed” furniture that showed how dated but solid pieces can be given new life with a lick of paint and imagination.


While these attention-grabbing items plucked from the attic, thrift store or even curbside on garbage day have likely been snapped up, the pop-up shop highlighted the terrific transformations happening in basements, garages and studios.
