You must be so relieved to have extra cabinetry for storage now! It would have drove me crazy to see those racks every morning.

Sherry took the words right out of my mouth. I'm an avid thrifter and there are a few spots I love, but I always branch out and check out everything that's available, including Salvation Army & Goodwill. I've actually done this project, I paid $5 at a yard sale for a chair that needed recaning, then bought about 20 belts because I had a problem finding good quality, leather belts that were of long length and thick width. Most belts that weren't leather, either fabric or plastic-ish, ran about $2, but leather belts ran around $5-10. I suppose you could ask friends or yard sale to try to keep under the $20 mark, but as someone who did this project from thrifting alone, it's well over the $20 mark, but still an awesome statement piece.

Very nice redo. I didn't think the flooring in the "before" picture needed to be replaced, but I'm guessing it was laminate? If it was real wood, I would have left it, it had a cool contrast and a "against the grain" feel. I too don't get the large molding on the top of the cabinets. If I couldn't, or decided not to go to the ceiling, I wouldn't draw attention to the huge, hunkering gap. Other than that, I love the clean new lines, especially the subway title back-splash (always a sucker for that!!).

I'm not much of a fan of either, I know shutters get dirty so quick and are a hassle, and the contact paper windows are too modern for me, especially with the large, off-sized martini glass. I would have opted for a blind or curtain in that small space, the contact paper just kills all the natural light. Though, I don't think it's as bad as people are making it out to be. If it's what she likes, it's what she likes, and I'm glad she's enjoying it in HER home.

If you're willing to accept something outside the realm of the bull, Foundary.com was selling large wire horse statues about a month ago. I believe they were also selling giraffe ones too, but I'm not sure about that, I believe they were around $300 a piece, a considerable amount less than Etsy. I'm definite they were selling roosters, which is a clique wire animal (if there is such a thing!). Maybe Foundary might have bulls in the future. It's worth keeping an eye out for!

I've often toyed with the notion of making my own duvet, especially after I saw the tutorial from Prudent Baby (http://www.prudentbaby.com/2010/05/diy-duvet-cover-tutorial.html). She also has sister posts for shams and pillows. I was half inspired by the choice of fabric, as well as the indept tutorial. She used common fabric you can find on the Etsy or searching the internet, which is 100% cotton. At least in theory and in the pictures, the fabric looks confortable.

This inspired me to find out exactly what other companies, I respect and buy from, use for their sheets. Most websites will include the type of fabric in the specs. You can easily use the information to use in a search engine to find a store carrying that item.

As for non-internet stores, I'm not sure, sorry.

I'm so glad to see http://www.etsy.com/shop/careyleigh007?ref=top_trail featured here. She's a sweetheart and a very talented lady. I've bought many things from her & I've always been more than stasified. You definitely get more than you pay for with her!

The other choices are equally as lovely. :)
