Jolie Sikes-Smith knows a thing or two about making flea market finds look fresh. Along with her mom and sister, she runs the Junk Gypsies shop and stars in the Junk Gypsies show. Here's how she filled her brand-new kitchen with salvaged style:


1. Choose a buttery wall paint.


The soft creamy hue (Canyon Cloud by Behr), combined with the natural wood stain (Pecan by Minwax) on the windows, trim, and beams, creates a warm backdrop for the room's bold accents.


2. Position red bar stools.


Jolie's barstool mix — a pair of swiveling tractor seats plus a vintage vinyl-covered number — are characteristic of her signature farmhouse-meets-retro look.


3. Experiment with a salvaged island.


Retrofitted with electrical outlets and reconfigured drawers, this 9-foot-long piece, originally a counter in a New Jersey general store, multitasks as a prep surface, breakfast bar, and homework station.


4. Go bold with turquoise cabinets.


To give them a slightly weathered look, Jolie first coated the cabinets with blue interior oil stain (Aquarius by Sherwin-Williams), then used a rag to apply and partially rub off a layer of Provincial Wood Finish stain by Minwax. "Embrace color," says Jolie. "Just because kitchens are utilitarian rooms doesn't mean they should be quiet, sterile, or boring."

5. Add a handmade toolbox for storage.


This rustic caddy emblazoned with the name Larry Slifer, now stores plates instead of tools, and it's one of Jolie's favorite scores from the Round Top antiques fair. "I love that it has a story. Someday I'm going to meet someone who knew Larry Slifer!" she says.


6. Pick stainless countertops.


Inspired by the industrial kitchens in her parents' chain of pizza restaurants, Jolie chose the stain-proof surface for its durability and versatility. "It's not fancy, and it goes with everything," she says.


7. Embrace open storage.


On the cabinets flanking the vent hood, Jolie left the doors off for a casual look and convenient access to staple ingredients, spices, and dry goods stored in apothecary jars.


8. Hang a sign.


To preserve its red color, Jolie coated the 20-foot-long vintage "Restaurant" sign, salvaged from a Mexican restaurant in San Antonio, with clear polyurethane.

9. Upgdate your pantry.


To give the functional space a farmhouse look, Jolie's husband, Todd, built two panels inspired by barn doors then stained them black (Ebony by Minwax). Over the pantry, a salvaged stained-glass window bring in light from the entryway. Flat Track Hardware Set: from $300; barndoorhardware.com


10. Make a mason jar chandelier.


Over the sink, Jolie strung up a pendant light using quart-size Mason jars, threaded wire, and Edison bulbs. For a similar look, try the Mason Jar Cluster Chandelier, $275; shadesoflight.com.
