They should bring back the stuff from the late 50's and 60's. These items would sell like hot cakes today ! I would buy a lot of those items !

I'm pretty much in agreement with the majority : what a tacky mess !!!! I would have given anything to have that piece of furniture. I just ordered one on Ebay for 350$ from Denmark because I couldn't find anything close to this in my area... I had been looking for a year now... Please AT, don't encourage these people by giving them attention...

When we were still in university, me and my boyfriend lived with his brother and his sister in an apartment in Montreal. One day, me and his brother and sister decided to go shopping at IKEA. We shopped for a couple of hours and the kart was getting very full. So we get to the car and it hit us : " How the &*(%(*# are we going to fit all this in the car ?" With a couple of acrobatics, we managed to fit everything in but we didn't fit in anymore lol - We ended up driving home with me and my face squished in the window, my brother in law was squished in the back and my sister in law did her best to drive back home lol !

It's about what it cost for our kitchen (200 sq ft). It's a lot to pay for a small kitchen... But that's here in Canada (Quebec) so materials might be more expensive in US ? And in our case, we saved on electrical by hiring a retired electrician and by doing the majority of the work ourselves except for the kitchen cabinets that where custom made... And quartz counter top...

Why not just clean it and use very colorful items to make it pop. The wood grain and knobs look in ok condition. With these knobs, I see turquoise, orange and yellow accents. Painting it will only make it look cheap... Here are some ideas (less the painted ones :P) : http://tattoodhousewife.blogspot.ca/2012/02/mid-century-monday-credenzas.html

I'm sad to ear about Chloe :( At least you gave her the chance to have a good life and be happy ! I have 2 little kitties of my own and they are like my children. I couldn't imagine my life without cats. And I would also add to your list, the comforting and calming effect of purring. It helps me to sleep sometimes !
