Shortly after moving to historic Charleston I couldn't help but notice, there's a lot of dusty old things stored in attics & barns, no longer useful, just beyond restoration.

Then I had this idea - take these nearly lost items and transform them into unique, useful, and better than ever goods.

After a little research I determined the word "revamp" best defines what I do - similar to recycle, repurpose, restore - revamp means to make better - and that's what I hope to do.

Everything you'll find @ foundrevamp is old and has been revamped so it's useful & beautiful for your home today!
