Who: Kaler Walker
Where: Raleigh, North Carolina
The Project: Kaler needed a handy spot to corral cocktail gear, and she found the solution in a $5 estate-sale stereo cabinet. She drew up plans to turn it into a bar, and her dad did the work. "It took a while to map out, but it's just what I wanted," she says.
The Feat: Kaler and her dad created a stylish bar by adding mirror insets and crosshatch molding to the cabinet's mid-century doors.
