This week I’m joined by a special guest, Paige from Farmhouse Vernacular. Paige’s content centers around a farmhouse she and her husband purchased four years ago, and they have spent the last four years renovating it to look as it might have looked when it was originally built. She has so many tips to share on how to incorporate historic pieces, without making a space look dated.  

This episode, we discuss…

[2:43] Purchasing antiques and shopping secondhand

[5:51] Refurbishing old furniture

[14:00] Salvaging fabrics and upholstered furniture

[18:08] Taking advantage of deals online

[22:40] Haggling on prices

[30:20] Buying items at auctions

[33:53] How to follow along with Paige’s farmhouse renovation
