Georgia’s brilliant idea



That was a brilliant idea from Georgia, and that’s what they like from contestants—they think outside the box and they save money. I mean, if someone else pays 5K for cabinetry and she buys a wardrobe for $50, it’s a smart way to go, and she does a great job at that. I used to love buying an old table and sanding it up and doing it up, and oiling it and things like that. My big thing is finding stuff on the side of the road— instead of buying it I like to find things on the side of the road. My coffee table that I’ve got at home was a workbench that I found on the side of the road, and I just sanded it all back and cleaned it all up, cut the legs off and turned it into a coffee table, which I’ve had for 25 years. And it’s still my coffee table and I found it on the side of a road.
