I have a pair of those Nate Berkus lamps and they seems more gold than brass. Are these the lamps from his last collection?

DIY Project Idea: Painted Black & White Striped Walls Color Therapy

"it might be different sitting at that computer, but looking at it on a monitor from a pulled-back perspective is definitely giving me a little vertigo. (hilariously i don't think prison uniform--those stripes were horizontal, y'all!--but rather beetlejuice. it is a great association to have.)"

This made me crack up. I was wondering why people thought "jail" rather than "Beetlejuice".

We are 2 people in a 4 bedroom + family room + dining room home. We share a bedroom, have a guest room/light duty office, my dressing room/craft/writing room, turned the dining room into an exercise room, moved our full service office and dining into the formal living room and have plans to do something with the master bedroom that's currently empty.

I vote for cleaning it up. Say no to wallpaper. It's really a terrible look. Apparently, I'm the only anti-wallpaper on furniture person.

The homeless shelter where I am a case manager does not take travel sizes toiletries or donated toiletries of any kind. Our office manager answers that question at least 20 times a day. In fact we're pretty strict on donations since a) our storage space is limited and b) most people have a bizarre understanding of "useable condition). Just because a person is homeless does not mean they should be grateful to receive toxic, moldy, expired decades old toiletries, stained or ripped sheets or any number of items in disastrous condition people attempt to donate.

Mismatch chairs reminds me too much of dorms and grad student apartment. My chairs all match, but they were purchased after a snagged my amazing dining table. They look great together

I live never a pretty exclusive college and the idea of picking through the often broken, body fluid and beer soaked particleboard furniture holds no appeal to me. Nor is dealing with the shut ins and kooks populating my town's CL free section. As for picking through a neighnor's trash, forget it. People call the police on unfamiliar cars and people trolling the neighborhood.
