Instead of paying top dollar for custom cabinetry, these homeowners built their own. They are made from purple-heart wood flooring and stainless-steel sheets. The handles are plumbing pipes from a hardware store. The countertops are stainless steel found at an old pizza parlor for $50. A sander was used on them to create funky swirls to camouflage the old scratches. Total cost of cabinets and countertops: $3,000.
