The DWR annex was not as great as I had hoped. I would suggest visiting all of the Revivals locations (I think there are 3 or 4?).

Fell in love with the Urban Outfitters Globe pouf and am now heart broken to find that they won't ship it to California. Seriously?! That makes no sense at all.

To add to the drool-worthy shoe organizers - this one is my favorite. Someday I shall own one. Or two. And the shoes to fill it....

I think it's really all about preference and what you have to work with, but we have a rather large TV (56"?) and our architect told us 20 ft was optimal. Sounds like a lot but it's perfect for us.

PS: Beautiful new place!

My husband just became self employed a few months ago, which allows him more time to help with household chores and be more involved with the kids. So we are all home together a lot and everyone is happy and less stressed. We have a little less financial security, but it's worth it. Too bad employers don't get it.

If you really wanted to use it for magazines, you may be able to roll them up and have them stand vertically in a row (depending on how big they are). Otherwise, maybe use it for perfume bottles or vanity items and put a hook on either side for towels?
