Katherine had her heart set on replacing the electric stove with a vintage model, but months of hunting proved fruitless—until a friend discovered a working vintage Roper for only $45 while riding her bike past a garage sale. The Fugits crowned it with a distressed shelf made from wood they found in their basement. "I had always said, ‘If I ever remodel a kitchen, I'm going to remodel it around a vintage stove,' and it's my favorite part," Katherine says. "I stare at it every day!"
