Michele Adams and Gia Russo, founders of Los Angeles-based MiGi, have some suggestions for decorating on a budget. Recently
Russo coveted a pair of chairs that cost more than $3,000 each. She found a run-down look-alike pair in a warehouse and was
able to have them refinished for $300 per chair. She also recommends shopping at fabric stores for pillows, linens, and napkins.
"It's usually cheaper to buy fabric than purchase finished linens," Russo says. "For simple pillows, I take the materials
to the dry cleaner and ask for their tailor to make them. Most dry cleaners will sew linens for a fraction of the usual cost."
