I'm a big fan of the Pixo lamp by Pablo. Highly adjustable, low power, and it even has a builtin USB port for charging mobile devices.

Also, the Delta Table lamp by Robert Abbey is also nice for that faceted look:

I recently bought a Herman Miller SAYL chair, and while not really that cheap, it looks great, has lots of color options, and is really comfortable.

repaint it white, except INSIDE the cubby holes paint it bright (possibly fluorescent) orange!

I second the privacy film idea. I had a similar situation in my apartment and I used the Emma Jeffs stuff:

man this would be so loud, and not just when moving plates around. Looks cool, but not very practical. But hey I guess you can just hose it all down when it's dirty.

I thought you were supposed to remove the painters tape while the paint is wet? That way it doesn't peel up from the wall.

I've done alot of interior painting and I stopped using tape a while ago. It's not worth the time. Get a good angled tip brush and paint the edges and corners with no tape. It takes some practice, but it's much faster than taping and gives better results.

Also, I do the edges and corners first BEFORE filling in with the roller

As far as i can tell from the picture it looks like the plasma tv is inset in the wall. This seems like a bad idea because they crank out alot of heat and need ventilation. And somehow I doubt they implemented a cooling or venting mechanism in the wall.

This is bogus. i've been perusing craigslist for a few months on and off, and SF rents look just as high now as they were a few months ago.

Paint the shit out of that ceiling. it's hideous. and while the views and the windows themselves are lovely, the window trim made me throw up a little in my mouth. while sanding and restaining everything might be ok, it would be a monumental task. especially since there appear to be small divets between each plank in the ceiling (unlike hardwood flooring). sanding down in those guys would be tough.

But most importantly, remember: this is YOUR house. do with it as you like.

While, not a home makeover show per se, I tend to watch "Small Space, Big Style" because it focuses on small spaces (duh), and how real people solve the problems that come with living in tight urban apartments.

For the record, Trading Spaces is a scourge upon the earth.

up here in San Francisco I took a few classes on letterpress last year at the SF Center for the Book ( I was doing alot of screenprinting on my own, and I wanted to see what letterpress printing was all about. The classes gave me great perspective on setting type and the printing process, and now I can rent out time on the presses for my own projects!
