Do you love all things retro or antique? Are you an avid collector who loves exploring old houses and refurbishing outdated furniture? If you’re interested in antiquing or remodeling, PBS offers great programming focused on each of those areas. The network’s website now offers two of these popular programs online completely for free.
This Old House
One of the original home improvement shows, This Old House features one whole-house renovation over several different episodes. Follow the likeable host and crew members as they gut an old house, then rebuild it into a fully functional version of its original glory. If you want to learn about remodeling your own home, the show’s Ask This Old House segment, a shorter version of the original show, teaches viewers carpentry tricks and answers questions from viewers.
This incredibly popular program is beloved by history buffs and home decor enthusiasts alike. Each episode features a group of antique appraisers at trade shows, as well as hopeful antique owners who wait anxiously as the experts reveal the story behind their most precious belongings. Some of the items are worth big bucks, but other folks find that their priceless treasures are actually fairly worthless.
