Style Secrets: Cheap Chic
- Don’t limit items to their original functions. We used a vintage bamboo cabinet to create an orderly bar area and repurposed old columns as kitchen island supports.
- Substitute galvanized pipe for iron or brass railings or rods. Our loft railings and pot rack were made with this inexpensive material.
- Put extra construction materials to use. We recycled leftovers from the metal roof to form walls for the porch bath.
- Some of the best treasures are roadside finds. I found our living room chairs on the street near the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama.
