Aniko's white IKEA wall unit worked fine in the dining room. But the second she saw West Elm's reclaimed wood buffet, she knew she could refresh this basic piece into a showstopper—and save over $1,100 in the process.

Aniko got the wood for free from a local business, and spent $17 on stain and lacquer. That's a pretty hefty savings!

Check out her blog, A Place of My Taste, for more photos and a tutorial on how she made the oversized art that hangs above her new buffet.

Thank you, Aniko!
