George Forman grill? TKO!

foremangrillI have recently been hunting down some unique antique furniture to refinish. Through my ventures into the second-hand stores of downtown Denver, I have found some very awesome pieces to refinish for clients and consignment. The most interesting discovery, however, is how many George Foreman grills are for sale at these places. Not just a few – we’re talking TONS of these grilling wonders lining the shelves with cords wrapped and tangled everywhere. Some heavily used and some still in the boxes. The lean, mean grillin’ machine has seen its days, I guess.

Unlike the fate of Baldy’s great miracle cooker, there are many pieces of furniture that have a second or third round still left in them. Stay tuned for pictures of some of these pieces as they reemerge into their new beauty. Keep me in mind if you are looking for a new life for your favorite furniture. It is amazing how cyclical styles are. Today’s design lines are just refinements of yesterday’s.

    That’s a shame, I loved those things! A bachelor’s best friend!
    Hey Jeff, Are you going to take before and after pics of your refurbishments? I’d love to see your magic!
