Victoria of the sfgirlbybay blog is guest blogging on the Design*Sponge blog for the next two weeks, where she'll be writing about affordable design in week 1, then her hometown (San Francisco) in week 2. As you can see here, she's a fantastic stylist, and puts her formidable flea market bargaining skills to brilliant effect in her own apartment. She writes of this photo, "I found this beautiful buffet at a yard sale, covered in hideous beige paint. Again, I carted into the back of my bug and took it to my mum's garage where I stripped off all the paint amidst highly toxic fumes, sanded it and polished up the natural wood. And the pièce de résistance? It was just $5!" Inspiring stuff. Read her D*S guest blog here.
