{About} 508 Restoration & Design

Well, here we are, pro­tect­ing our home­stead in Virginia.

KIDDING.

Just a fun photo shoot we did…BUT.…being a “Tor­rence” means that this photo could be totally believable.

We are a bunch of RANDOM: farm, city, ren­o­vate old, design new, color fanat­ics, ice cream and nerds (the candy), Jesus, paint, fur­ni­ture, kids, a whole lot of sarcasm…the list goes on (because it is random).

I am Sarah, and my hus­band is Nathan. We are both graphic design­ers by trade, but now I am at home and he actu­ally works and brings me money.

We are both very hard work­ers and usu­ally have at least 1,700 too many projects on our plate. Lit­er­ally. It is always too much…but it is kind of how we thrive.

We have two small ones: Ella & Lin­coln (4 and 2).

We started this lit­tle blog because we have a pas­sion for mak­ing things of the past relat­able now. This is often reflected in our 80-year old Vir­ginia home…we will basi­cally re-do/change just about any­thing. We do it all ourselves…which mostly turns out much bet­ter than its orig­i­nal crappy state because…its an old home.

We started 508 Restora­tion & Design because ren­o­vat­ing and re-inventing fur­ni­ture is another way we like to express our love for change. We are about restor­ing beauty, cel­e­brat­ing design and hold­ing on to the orig­i­nal char­ac­ter of each item we work on. Our fur­ni­ture is num­bered because no two pieces are the same {and because we didn’t feel like nam­ing them}.

Drop us a note if you have any spe­cific requests, we would love to work with you!   fiveoeightRD [at] gmail [dot] com
