“Some of my fondest memories go back to my childhood in Oklahoma when I would drive with my Parents past a Dairy on the way to my Grandparents farm. Over my youth I remember watching it get more and more dilapidated and I would tell my Parents – ‘Someday I am going to buy that Dairy and Restore it.’ – It really stuck with me and that was where my passion for preservation really began.” – Brett Waterman
Restored on DIY Network heads into Season Two in Redlands, California.
It feels a privilege to be invited inside these hand picked Arts & Crafts homes, destined to be touched by Brett Waterman’s infectious enthusiasm. Trusting the expertise and intuition of this Preservationist, home owners are able to invest the best of the old with the new in their restoration projects.
Yes this Craftsman admits stripping paint really is a turn on – as it lights up his curiosity for all that is buried deep within. Brett brings viewers back to a time and place, when roots began to grow – inspiring all to appreciate what came before – and to reinforce the pillars of time. This working man feels most at peace with his hands in the earth, adding the finishing touches to the homes entrusted in his care.
Growing up my own Dad instilled in me to bring the best of yourself to whatever you do – and that is what inspires me most about Brett. Not only does he bring the ‘best of himself’ to what he does – he has the ability to make you fall in love with it too.
One of my favourite interviews to date.
There are loads of ‘renovation style’ shows to spend your time on – but Restored TV with Brett Waterman – is soon to be deemed a national treasure.
Season Two Begins Wednesday January 10th
