We've loved the Leksvik show rack and bench from Ikea. You can pretty easily add a DIY cushion to the top to make it more comfy and it's only $69.99. Sturdy.

Apartment Therapy - Williams-Sonoma Shoe Rack

We started a bit early ourselves, about a week ago...one of the things I keep noticing is our perpetual fear of buying rugs for our floors...no fear of color, I love our walls, and I think we're on our way to making the apartment feel like home, but I always look jealously at others' floors...some rooms we would leave be, as our hardwood floors themselves are quite nice, but I wonder if there are folks out there who could give me a primer in shopping for and selecting rugs, especially since our budget is, well, small for this Cure.


Apartment Therapy - The Fall Cure: Getting Oriented Week One

Hurrah! I lurked during the Spring cure and was inspired to buy the book when we moved to a new place toward the end of it. We had just finished painting (using much bolder color choices than I might have dared before reading) and hadn't put much up on our walls or completely unpacked before we discovered that I was pregnant (we'd been trying). Three months of "morning" sickness kept both of us from doing much more to settle in, but now I'm feeling better and we're ready to make our new apartment a home that welcomes us, and the little boy we're expecting in January. I can't wait!
