Steal This Look: A Cheap and Cheerful Fire Island Kitchen, Summerhouse Edition

August 1, 2017

We dropped in on Ann Stephenson and Lori Scacco a while ago to check out their 450-square-foot A-frame on Fire Island, which they bought in December 2014 and overhauled in time to move in by the start of the next summer season (see A Chic Fixer-Upper on Fire Island, Budget Edition). Here’s a closer look at their budget kitchen remodel (plus tips on where to splurge and where to save).

Instead of spending on built-in cabinetry, they hung a simple white curtain to conceal the under-counter utility areas.
