“I repurpose furniture (fixing & painting). Also if you have a piece of furniture that you would like redone I can do that or if you’re looking to get rid of furniture I can help with that as well. I also sell antiques but love making vintage pieces more modern. I'm excited to be part of the community!! Please feel free to stop down and say hi, and check out the store " Vintage 180"
