"One of the things that I need to remind myself in terms of decor, is to think outside the box. A quick and easy way to update old furniture is with paint and stain, like I updated our coffee table, which was built over 50 years ago. In my opinion, white paint is always a fresh and clean update to pretty much anything. Don't get rid of your old stuff, just update it." -- Beatrice
