All About

She scored big by going to a restaurant supply and salvage store, where she purchased her commercial oven, refrigerator, rolling carts and shelves, and even the kitchen sink for a fraction of retail price. She also stacked and hung old electrical-outlet boxes to create an inexpensive, one-of-a-kind spice rack.
