"{PAINT it forward piece} A couple months ago I made the announcement that I wanted to Pay it Forward by donating either the proceeds of a furniture sale or donating a piece itself in an auction/raffle type setting to an organization or foundation. I was blessed to cross paths with a wonderful local family who tragically lost their son a couple years ago to brain cancer. Ryan was a mere 30 years young when his life ended but he left behind a legacy. Inspired by Restoration Hardware Baby's "...
