Kai Ethier tranforms a well-worn family heirloom.
A decades-old love seat was purchased from The Art Shoppe by Kai's mother-in-law. After a stint as her sister's university-apartment sofa, it was stored by Kai in her basement for years. In spite of its good bones, the love seat's multitude of pen marks and cat scratches made it unsuitable for living room display.
