I caught the first 2 episodes of "Restorer Guy" on TLC and it was great! The star's name is Gable Painter, a home restoration expert from Richmond, Virginia. Last year, he starred in his own special on TLC called "Flip It Back." That show amazed me, and I remembered his name (Gable Painter, get it?).
Now that he has his own series, I can't wait to watch more. This guy is in love with Victorian houses, and it looks as though there are a lot of them in Richmond that need serious TLC. Gable and his crew lovingly bring back buildings that need a lot of work. He has been known to dumpster dive at other construction sites where work crews unwittingly toss away old doors and other irreplaceable pieces of history. He also visits a local mill that still owns the original knives that were used to cut much of Richmond's Victorian millwork.
