Rehab and Restoration Movements—How Smart Innovators are Transforming Trash into Design Treasures
If you have checked out rehab and makeover shows on networks like HGTV and the DIY Network, you have probably seen clever people transform what seems like trash into treasures. They decorate homes, yards, and commercial spaces for pennies on the dollar, because they use inexpensive or found objects and restore them in modern ways. These enterprising individuals have inspired a movement toward imaginative repurposing, and some followers even use their skills to upcycle items for profit. If you have been bitten by the proverbial rehab/restore bug, you are not alone. However, before you get started, you need to learn more about the ways in which various items can be restored or transformed. For example, when it comes to many metal items, power coating services offer an excellent way to transform tired or damaged pieces into like-new beautiful objects.

You probably see plenty of powder-coated items in your everyday life, such as bike frames, kitchen mixers, playground equipment, outdoor furniture, and vehicle parts.
