Hide CaptionShow CaptionUnderneath the window in the designer room is an antique French cafe table with iron legs that is valued at $2,500. The Double Take team is able to re-create the sideboard for just $115.
For the wrought-iron legs, Jamie takes the legs off of an old sewing machine cabinet. He builds an oval tabletop and finishes it with a dark cherry stain. Once the stain is dry, the wrought-iron legs are fastened to the bottom.

The Asian figurines and ginger jar in the inspiration room are all original antiques dating back to the 19th century and beyond. Halili traveled to an auction house and found antiques in a similar style and from a similar time period, all for a great price.

Tip: Auction houses are a great way to find antiques and collectibles. They are open to the general public and usually have experts on hand to help you shop. Auctions are typically held during typical work hours, but you don't have to attend to bid. Shop the catalog or showroom, find what you want and give them a call the day of the auction and someone will bid for you.
