I second Akay's comment. I chose my new apartment based on the fact that it had a washer and dryer in it. If I had known about portable washing machines, I might have taken a less expensive apartment in a more preferable neighborhood and put the extra rent money towards one of these! AT should do a thorough review of the different machines.

Just when I thought I couldn't like Ikea any more than I already do! All Ikeas should do this a few times a year.

All these people getting so down on the decorated washer and dryer! In my new apartment, my washer and dryer are in my kitchen right next to my refrigerator. Some stripes that coordinate with the rest of my kitchen might be just what it needs to look less renter-y and more cheerful.

God no. In 11 days my current Roommate From Hell is leaving and I seriously cannot wait. No more dog fur everywhere that he never cleans up (he literally hasn't vacuumed for the whole year), no more dirty dishes all over the house, no more smelly, sour laundry sitting in the washing machine for days, no more trash all over the kitchen constantly, no more surprise friends staying for days. I'm never living with a roommate again. I'm paying more in rent, but the stress just isn't worth it.

I like my pedestal sink! There's space on it to have to clean! It's round and has some space on either side of the tap for soap or anything else I need to set down. As for storage, there's a mirrored medicine cabinet above it and shelves beside the shower. I suppose storage would be hard if I shared the bathroom, but that's a benefit of being a "woman living on her own".

Painting the legs white might give it a cool mod look. The photos don't show the floral design super well, but from the description/what I can see, I'd leave the vinyl as is. It's really unique!

Much better! I would usually never paint over nice wood like that, but between the multi-tone stain and the detailed carving, it looked very fusty. The new version is much prettier and more intriguing.

Hng23, thanks for the tip! I always forget how long I've had my toothbrush. It's so easy to grab a new toothbrush when you pick up more toothpaste at the store.
