Exciting stuff. Wish their website was better designed - it's rather tedious to get to the sample pics....

What a waste of fabric, labor and people really care about covering up their boxes of Kleenex???

This is great!! I've been trying to figure out where I can take my broken tv. Looks like Build It Green is the place.

Looks like a fire hazard.

We have so many little nieces and nephews right now that I keep a stockpile of books and some toys - whenever there's a good deal I get a bunch - and it's definitely come in handy when a birthday sneaks up on us. However, all this, along with other lovely things waiting to be regifted, fit into a medium-sized plastic container and one quick glance will tell me what I have. I would not deem an inventory list of gifts as "essential."

Hi Helen,

I actually have a similar dilemma - we have a french door leading to our bedroom that is painted over. I want to remove the paint but need some privacy and the idea of a curtain wasn't exciting me. Then I stumbled across this link for adhesive film for windows from an old AT posting I think:

I like that it adds some texture to a room but doesn't take over or cover up the beauty of the french door.

Good luck!

This reminds me of the modular furniture popular in the daycare centers I worked in as a teenager - useful for encouraging large motor skills in toddlers who love to climb but not so hot in the comfort or aesthetic department....

Thanks everyone for all of the extremely helpful suggestions! We have a lot of great ideas to consider and we're hoping to get the kitchen finished by the beginning of January (in and around the holidays!). We'll let you know how it turns out!

Thanks AT!

Thanks for all the comments so far!

The landlord is ok with us painting the existing cabinets. He will not pay for new ones (though that could change if the pest problem returns, but for now it's just a gross factor).

The floor has tones of dark grey and orange in it (looks sort of like slate) and orange is going to be the accent color for the kitchen. We'll be replacing the countertop (likely with something darker to match the floor) as we found some nice stuff at Home Depot that wasn't too expensive.

The main goal is to make the cabinets look new and improved and cover up the residual "yuck" vibes of the previous tenants.

I'm not sure what color would be best or what type of finish (semi-gloss?)....
