Refinishing Begins At Home

Andrew and Deanna Cauthen, the owners of ReVamped Furnishings in Decatur, renovate their own kitchen.

After eight long weeks, several trips to The Home Depot and Floor & Decor, and lots of late nights and early mornings, we have finally finished our kitchen renovation. Hallelujah!!!

Although it was a lot of work, it was a labor of love, and we are enjoying every minute in our newly renovated space. I am especially loving all of my new LG appliances, and my butcher block countertops, and I absolutely adore my colorful, tiled backsplash.

I want to say a big thank you to my incredible husband, Andrew Cauthen, for being such a great project manager. I handled most of the design details, but we could not have done all of this work without his careful planning.

We can’t wait to share our new space with all of our family and friends, so plan to drop by and pay us a visit.

Below are a few pictures of our renovation process. Enjoy!

Trash to treasure—furniture flipping becomes booming business


“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.

What started several years ago as a hobby and an inexpensive way to furnish their Decatur home, the married couple has turned into a lucrative home business, Revamped Furnishings.

“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.”

Andrew said he started years ago refurbishing furniture and has built his skills over the years. Now, when he comes home from his job with DeKalb County he usually spends a few hours restoring a piece covered in scuffed paint or marred with nicks and scratches to its former beauty.
