Who: Amy and Doug Heavilin
Where: Franklin, IN
"We splurged on the tub and glass shower walls, but we got the rest for cheap: The minty wall paint was a discounted "mistake," the Restoration Hardware medicine cabinet was an eBay steal, and I rewired the $3 vintage pendant lights. Then there’s the $40 desk that Doug turned into a vanity. For a final touch, we fitted one of the windows with stained glass we found at an antiques mall. What was supposed to be a three-month project took seven. It was tough with full-time jobs, but it was worth the wait."
