BUD­GET REN­O­VAT­ING

Home Beautiful - - THE EDIT -

“I’ve be­come known as the girl who can ren­o­vate cheaply but still do a good-qual­ity job, and that res­onates be­cause most peo­ple don’t have a lazy 20 or 40 grand. So when I do my TV renos, and trans­form a house inside and out for $15,000, peo­ple go ‘Wow, you can do that’. That’s where stores like Ikea and the Salvos come in – even Kmart and Tar­get have in­cred­i­ble fixtures and fit­tings.”

“I love ev­ery­thing from the 1950s and ’60s. I just missed out on be­ing born in the ’60s. Peo­ple gen­er­ally want to be younger, I want to be slightly older, and say I was born in the ’60s!” ~ Cherie Bar­ber
