Sometimes staying flexible is the secret to renovation success. It's how this Winnetka, Illinois homeowner was able to afford her bath's overhaul on just $4,000. The upstairs bath in her 1921 Tudor Revival was in bad shape, complete with a rust-stained tub and cracked tile floor. Already redoing the kitchen and downstairs baths, she asked her contractor to squeeze in tweaks to the one upstairs. He offered her a stash of marble tile—left over from another job—at half price! She said yes, even though yellow wasn't her first choice.
