Countertop with character: Heather poured concrete countertops and crowned them with a marble backsplash fashioned from two boxes of 12- by 12-inch polished marble tiles cut in half. The countertops cost about $50 plus the price of concrete, and the tiled backsplash was far less than a single marble slab.
Drawer pulls: Installing reproduction antique cabinet hardware is an easy way to add cottage character to any kitchen.
