Home restoration tips from a “Rehab Addict”

TV star Nicole Curtis gives advice at West Palm Beach trade show

Nicole Curtis, the star of the home improvement television show “Rehab Addict,” paid a visit to West Palm Beach this week to share some of her self-taught wisdom concerning the restoration of historic houses.

Curtis was a long way from home at the West Palm Beach Spring Home Show — she usually works on projects around Detroit and Minneapolis.

But her reflections on her experience reclaiming the original details of historic houses hit home with the South Florida crowd, according to the Palm Beach Post.

“She’s got so much spunk,” Boca Raton-based Celia Torres told the Post. “I love the work she does, and that she restores old homes.” Curtis generally takes on projects in areas no one else will go into, saying there are no bad neighborhoods — only bad neighbors.

About 140 other vendors attended the twice-a-year trade show, numbers indicative of a recovering market, according to organizer American Consumer Shows. [Palm Beach Post] — Angela Hunt
