20 Pictures of Old Objects That Were Made Good as New

 While time may be what the soul needs to heal all wounds, it can really do a number on many items found all over the house. Objects made from metal succumb to rust, wood can get warped by moisture in the air, and once bright items can lose their shine. There’s nothing like the sadness of having to throw away a treasured piece of your home that has aged ungracefully. However, all it takes is a little imagination and a fresh coat of paint (or a really intense scrubbing) to make these worn items go from bleak to chic! Here are some examples of great ways to renew any broken and battered parts of your home.
