Super cute! The MM herringbone print is one of my all-time faves!

I think painting the cabinets white will only make the appliances look dingier (is that a word?). If you plan on staying in the home for a while, I would save up for new appliances and in the mean time change out the cabinet hardware and get some paint up on the walls. A nice, warm gray would be perfect. If you do have some money to spend, switch out the countertops to butcherblock.

I would say no to the white. I have an Ektorp loveseat and chair covered in white and it gets dirty from adults, much less the 3-year-old and pets. Washing doesn't always get everything out and eventually it will look dingy. We also have the Kivik sofa downstairs, covered in the red cotton since it was the only cover in stock at our store. I love the sofa itself and hope to upgrade to one of the textured covers soon.

I think the DILF/MILF is kind of cute. Now I'm thinking of embroidering "dilf" on a pair of boxers for my husband - he'd think it's funny and flattering.

ew, icky! And I'm happy to find out that I'm not the only one that feels that way! Both sides of my family seem to have no problem with it and I just quietly find it gross.
