Who: Nick Macke and Ted Moss
Where: Milton, Mass.
What: Gave their old cabinets a stylish yet frugal makeover.
"We wanted to keep some of the original retro details such as the stainless-steel sink and metal cabinets," says homeowner Nick Macke. That's the initial reason why he and his partner, Ted Moss, decided to go with mostly surface updates to their kitchen. Then they realized that doing so would save a huge chunk of cash as well as the kitchen's vintage charm.
