Great job - it really looks fantastic. I love the variation of the nickels - some heads, some tails, different directions.

The floor really gives the room subtle sparkle and a quirky twist.

redstripe78 , my old family home is at 40th and N. College. It was a gorgeous big old early 1920's red brick Georgian that my grandmother sold in the mid 60's when the area got rough. So happy to read that the area nearby has become so desirable again.

I use the Fyllen from IKEA - three of them:one each for whites, brights and darks. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80099224

My bedroom is upstairs and the laundry is downstairs. Because these are super light-weight and strong, I can easily carry two at a time down the stairs. They are collapsible so you can squash and store them - unfortunately for me the laundry is never done so they are always full!
