Nancy is an avid collector of china ornaments, but the years have taken their toll and some of her treasures have lost their luster due to age and dust. Shannon&́#x80;™s skills as an art restorer come in very handy here! Can she destain precious vases and fix the crack in their oak table? And what about the nasty stains on Allan&́#x80;™s historic marble coffee table? It&́#x80;™s a fascinating and very different program for Shannon as she extends her restorative powers from the new to the old. Along the way, we learn a valuable lesson about the cleaning power of unprocessed wheat bran.
Three generations of the Beattie Family live together under one roof. There's Christine and her kids, Jack and Annabel, who live downstairs, while grandparents Nancy and Allan stay upstairs. They also share their space with a menagerie of animals including two dogs and Ulysses, the cat. Pet hair is a big problem because Allan is an asthmatic, and though they try to restrict their pets to the lower floor of the house, Ulysses often insists on going upstairs for a visit. This, along with other dust and dirt issues, presents fresh challenges for Shannon. Something else for Shannon to tackle is the number of antiques and collectibles upstairs.
