Repurposed Kitchen Cabinets

Keep your eye out for well-made used cupboards.

"I was desperate to renovate our kitchen, but short on cash," explains H&H assistant design editor Kai Ethier. "One day, while running errands, I spotted a solid maple wood kitchen at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The french door cabinets and inset mouldings had me excited, but it was the $675 price tag that sealed the deal. Though the kitchen was 15 years old, it was so well crafted there wasn't a scratch on it. I snapped it up and set the reno in motion."
