“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” according to an old saying, and Decatur residents Deanna and Andrew Cauthen have made a business of turning what some have regarded as trash into treasured pieces of furniture.

“We both have an eye for the potential in a piece that someone else may have discarded, but it’s not the same eye,” Deanna said. “Often he sees something I don’t see and other times I see what he doesn’t see.”
