An Original Recycler

This is the interior of Bix Furniture Refinishing on 4th Avenue in Tucson, Arizona.  It was a very messy, but kind of cool store.  I've passed this store for years and never even knew it was occupied.  The front windows are covered in cobwebs, old dusty furniture stacked inside. It looked like a place forgotten. I had no idea it was actually open for business.

Ed and I visited her to get information on refinishing an old, dark stained dining table of my mother's into a beautiful, white, French country farmhouse-y dining table. The table is over 50 years old and made so well, it's worth preserving and restoring rather than buying something new.

The owner of the store - the one seated in the photo - was an interesting guy with a very eclectic style and some really good ideas. I'm thinking this is going to be a great option once a decision is made.
