Family Heirloom Antiques is a sibling-owned antique shop in Antioch, Illinois. Co-owner Heather Fenzel walks us through how she restores badly damaged “Snow White” lawn ornaments, which include the princess and five dwarfs. To repair the statues, she scrubs them with a steel brush to remove debris, washes them with water, files down chipped paint, fills chips with concrete, and then repaints them.
