Redo a bathroom
PROBLEM: I want to renovate my bathroom, but I don’t want to spend a lot of money.
SOLUTION: Scour local flea markets for furniture you can convert into a sink console, such as the vintage table seen here. Large hooks are an economical alternative to towel bars that look just as nice when they’re holding colorful towels. Instead of a medicine chest, opt for ordinary wall mirrors; toiletries, extra towels and other sundry items can be stored in plastic or wicker baskets.
