How to Paint Cabinets or Furniture

Old silver-plated flatware that you can find cheaply at antique shops and flea markets adds depth to a store-bought set

Creating an eclectic vintage look is possible by collecting single pieces of china or flatware from thrift stores and antique fairs. Most pieces are low-cost, so it's a fun way to shop without the guilt!

Black & white kitchen. ("This breakfast room is lit by French doors on either side and a picture window behind the long table. Designed by Berkley Vallone and Caroline DeCesare. Featured in March 2008 issue of House Beautiful.")

"Spare Aesthetic. In a kitchen designed by Susan Tully, an Aga range works beautifully with the spare aesthetic. The simple black-and-white color scheme adds a nice touch." (House Beautiful)

Love this baby-blue Morroccan tile backsplash. Not frugal?
