Recently I chatted with a friend who wanted a new looking kitchen and had convinced herself that she could never do that with salvaged items. I pointed her to this wonderful kitchen design featured in Better Homes and Gardens and completely changed her point of view. Check it out after the jump.
Using products from local places that re-use building materials these home owners have created a custom kitchen for a fraction of the price and environmental impact.
According to Better Homes and Gardens:
It's easy to renovate a kitchen on a dime when you know the right places to look. The foundation pieces for this kitchen were scored at secondhand stores, such as Habitat for Humanity ReStore. With everything from paint, flooring, appliances, electrical and plumbing supplies, to doors, windows, and accessories, resale stores are a great place to find items at a fraction of the original price. A little creativity transforms these odds and ends into a storage-packed, super functional, and pretty kitchen and breakfast nook that is perfect for a busy family.
