Leah Bolden On Secret Restoration
History Channel’s new series Secret Restoration follows a team of restoration experts including Leah Bolden who work diligently to restore old heirlooms inside a tool factory, but of course, without letting owners of these items know they’re getting special restoration treatment.
Leah Bolden, alongside Dave Weinman, PJ Burchett, David Dall, Alfred Dill, Sara Porter, and LaTasha “LA” Thym, worked on these heirlooms in the show’s “secret factory” reportedly located in Bridgeport, Connecticut. And it might be true for the history buff, Dave tagged the location of Bridgeport on a FB post of him working on a 150-year-old cannon carriage in the Secret Restoration factory.
As for Leah, she kept her work at the Secret Restoration a secret for 3 months. “I’ve been keeping a secret for several months now. And I’ve been keeping a lot from you guys. It’s time just to come clean and tell you why I disappeared for three months,” she revealed in a video.
“I just have to say this, it was so difficult for me to keep it from you guys for so long. It was killing me. So, I’m really glad that now you know. I feel so honored to be a part of the History Channel’s new television series called Secret Restoration,” she continued.
Also, the star future shared that she felt “really very fortunate” to be a part of it all “I think you’re going to be blown away by the restorations that we did on the show. And I hope I make you proud,” she added.
