When she began updating her first home, this homeowner found furniture and accessories at garage sales, flea markets, and outlet stores. She paired the bargain finds with high-end partners to get the look she wanted. This kitchen suffered from a lack of counter space. It had upper cabinets, but no lower ones with counters. She solved the problem by substituting furniture for lower cabinets. She found this table, a dark Victorian piece, in her garage, and painted it a creamy yellow color to blend in with the overhead cabinets.
