She had immediate plans to overhaul the dark interior, and she knew just the guy to call for help: Smoot owns a construction company.

<p><span><span><span><strong>Daybed, $50:</strong>&nbsp;<span>Smoot fashioned the frame of the daybed using a $25 flea-market door and pallets. The pillowcases? Old grain sacks, natch.</span></span></span></span></p>
