Yes, the laptop has accompanied me to the toilet...gatta catch up on my Google Reader. Although NEVER at work...how do you even pull that one off? I've also set up my laptop while taking a bath...nothing like watching hulu and taking a hot bubble bath!


Apartment Therapy Unplugged | News: Are Your Pants Down As You're Reading this Post?

Someone may have already said this - but I recommended a tall, wide mirror with a great frame. Just lean the mirror over it and then you can put a chair or couch in front of it. You could also put some kind of entertainment center in front of it (with wheels?), and a plant on top to disguise the top cover, and it would not block it. Plus the plant could help filter!

A wonderful idea! Yeah I would also be concerned about it falling apart...maybe it could only be a temporary solution to odors.

I have always wanted a goat (or goats!). These are so adorable, plus they offer so many benefits.

Wow - that bathroom is so cool! I think you are right - the hole is covered in clear plastic - so no falling through. But, I agree...would have definitely kept the pole

Great question and answers. I want to try out the CamelBak since I always hear about the dangers of certain plastics. It is so hard these days to know what is good and bad...most things wind up being bad before you know it! Thanks for the heads-up.

Janet - I haven't bought anything from Home Decorators yet, but on the website it seems like most of the desks are made from solid wood and they say "will last a lifetime". The West Elm one looks nice too! Good luck!

I have some desks with hutches listed on my blog here - http://pleasesirblog.blogspot.com/2008/01/not-your-ordinary-desk.html

They are from Home Decorators Collection - not all modern, but good prices. Good luck!

I don't use any softner chemicals...I like using Nellie Dryer Balls.

I'm not sure about painting brick - I haven't attempted it myself, but I go with others suggesting a rug solution. This way if you are unsure you can just move the rug.

Thank you so much for posting items at the Gift Fair 2008. My company usually sends me to the High Point Furniture Market, so it is great to see all the new products out there at another fair/market. Great work! How did you get them to allow you to take photos?
