I'd say the change to the post titles has already happened. I got all excited when I read NYC, BO, DC, CHI, LA, Bay Area & Online. Oh wait, that title's been a tease for some time.

All sarcasm aside, I'd love for the online version to become a reality.

I keep reading about all these great Ikea finds. When, oh when will ours be built?

Our local Starbucks' grounds fly out of the store like lightening. After asking for grounds for three years (!), I've only gotten them once.

I've got one in my daughter's room. Just unscrew the electrical parts from the plastic structure and stick it in the shower. Voila! Dusted!

I am loving the colors here - but:

#1 I'd hate to dust it.
#2 I'd constantly loose things in there!

Glad you shared it with us.

We've got an awesome laundry room. (Comments welcome!)

As with Monika1, the main problem is getting it all put away. I do much better during the summer, as I am able to use the clothesline and put shirts directly on hangers to dry. The winter is a whole other story of large and looming piles!

I like the idea of an indoor line and the spin dryer! Thanks val299 & Karey!

Please, please do more of these! I love seeing how others interpret the objects that inspire them into real rooms. Fantastic!

Fruit flies were a major problem for us. We kept the worms in the basement & used the Rubbermaid DIY system. After two years of battling those nasty pests, my family voted to get rid of the worms. Out to the garden they went.

{I sort of miss them.}

Anyone have some sure fire fruit fly prevention methods?

We've had bamboo floors from MOSO since 2002. The three dogs haven't done a thing to it. The only damage is from dropping things & it denting a tad. Oh, and a small rock under the couch when my dh decided to move it by himself. ::rolls eyes::

Go for it!

As expected - 0 out of 100. I read all the "green" ideas about using a bike/walking/reducing automobile use. LOL! We're about 2.5 miles of mountainous terrain to the nearest anything. With two kids in tow, no thanks. Disclaimer: We're about 300 ft from National Forest trails with private access and wouldn't move if you paid us. :-)

Cool site & idea!

~~Alternate opinion~~

Bamboo can be a great plant. As with all plants, when planted in the wrong place, bamboo can be a problem. It thrives in moist areas. If you've got the running type rain>15"/year = problems. (That's a non-scientific estimate of rain.)

We've planted it in Las Cruces, NM and at our home in Colorado. The most rain we have ever gotten is about 20"/year. Our soil is also poor with a capital 'P'. The bamboo is planted in an amended area and really has no reason to search elsewhere.

Wende in Phoenix - The clumping varieties are quite well behaved. My parents have planted a few different ones in Illinois with no issues after 8 years.

My parents have had a TOTO for years now. They had it imported after a visit to Japan. I *heart* their toilet seat and have been saving my pennies to get one.

That said, my slightly homophobic husband dislikes it merrily.
