Trash to Treasure

Annie Brahler's home in Jacksonville, Illinois is the perfect place to showcase her french interior design style. Annie owns an import company called Euro Trash ( ) where she finds these wonderful unique home furnishings and gives them a little TLC. She has mastered the art of finding European forgotten treasures and then working her magic on them. Check out these pics of her beautiful home which is actually a landmark called the William Howard Thompson House.

I am posting pics of a recent addition to the store. This dresser is from the early 1900's. I found it at a local antique auction and fell in love with it. It needed a little TLC so I painted it pale blue (Sherwin Williams, Breaktime) and replaced the old hardware with these adorable glass knobs.
