Without details, I don't believe the two pics are of the same piece of furniture. The drawers even appear to fit differently. Hummmm.....

Also be aware that some landlords insist that any new pet be at least one year old. I've had a couple of friends with broken hearts over this. Alls well that ends well, I was in my house and kept the dogs until they turned 1 and returned to their "parents" full time.

I was in your situation several years ago. Police detail and all. It ended up costing close to $5,000, all in. Although I don't live in the house any longer, my memories of that tree coming down is one of the saddest of my life...

I have a vase that has a pierced lid for just this purpose. Also, I have several frogs in different sizes. Martha Stewart gave this advice when Buck was a calf.

I lived in a London flat that had an undercounter-sized fridge sitting ON the counter. Under was a Bosch washer/dryer. I had everything!!!(35 years ago).

Orange will be dated in the next 15 minutes. Legs too spindly for "girth". The piece was pristine to begin with, now it just looks like a fat lady with skinny legs. Sorry, but I can't get with it.

Piano did an addition to our High Museum. I, for one among many, was not all that impressed. It looks like radiator fins. To be fair, the original museum building, by Meier, is just as ugly. Nothing but white tiles. Ugh.

I hope this new Piano effort is worthy of it's contents.

What one tenant sees as an "improvement" is not universal. I did, indeed, sue a tenant for paint unbecoming a sane person. Yes, I won.

Spent all my years w/o a dishwasher (and disposal) until last year when I moved into a modern apartment. I have lots of dishes, live alone (well, the cats have their bowls), and use up all my 10" luncheon plates (don't use big dinner plates unless I have company) and run the dishwasher once a week. When I run it weekly, I also put in my sponge and other scrubby stuff. I would not like to live without a dishwasher.

I won't ask first, but if someone asks me, I'll be honest. THEN, I will ask them.

Wouldn't do this to my apartment neighbor, but someone in a different property, sure 'nuf.

As someone mentioned, all the apartments are listed online, most with pricing, pet fees and incidentals (whether you want a washer/dryer, etc.).

Nope, not for me. Not versatile enough if I want to go with another style of furniture. Would be anxiety producing with trying to keep it shiny. It looks nice, but it rather reminds me of a stable.

Layered rugs are an accident waiting to happen. I saw most of the new items last Saturday at the Atlanta IKEA. Didn't buy anything, except Blue Bags. Those little settees are really cute and surprisingly comfortable (for a short time, don't know about an evening of sitting). Love the concept, tho.
