The Affordable Home Office Addition

Unlike the rest of this 1916 home, this room's good bones were buried under 1950s "updates": pale pine slab-front cabinets that were chipped, and fir floors with a crazy tricolor painted border beneath ugly brown carpeting. Kelly and Wayne Averbeck in Jerome, Idaho, gutted the room and left the built-in intact. A contractor hung new Sheetrock on the walls. White paint and dark pulls refreshed the built-in, while a faux-grain floor and repro sconces added to the space's vintage charm.
