Steel Tubing = Sink Support

Thaddeus Siemasko, Beverly, Mass.
Cost: $200
How He Did It: For his ongoing kitchen renovation, architect Thaddeus Siemasko bartered with a client for a cast-iron vintage sink from his house in exchange for a donation to the client's favorite charity. He loved the sink's deep bowl and washboard top, if not the lead-paint-covered cabinet that came with it. Instead of refinishing the cabinet, he ditched it entirely and bolted together a support frame of stainless-steel angles and rectangular steel tubing from an industrial catalog. "The open area gives me an easy-access spot for storing baskets of kitchen towels and other necessities," he says. The sink is anchored to the wall for stability.
