Dear Taniya,
Your "new" kitchen looks great!
I'm in the process of painting my kitchen cabinets and I wonder if you could tell me what brand and type and color did you use for your cabinets. Any info you can share on this would be extremely useful.
Thanks for sharing the pictures of your beautiful home,
Ana

Thanks for all the suggestions! As of now I am leaning towards painting them white, change the hardware and see how they look before doing anything more drastic. Sounds good?

Di: it's in the warehouse district. Lots of lofts around that area which is in the heart of the city.
Good luck with your loft hunt!

Carla: Sure. I got it on sale at Pottery Barn. The key is made of metal. I don't think they have it right now but they have (much) smaller versions which you can find at http://www.potterybarn.com/products/vintage-keys-set-of-7/?pkey=cwall-art
Hope this helps!

I don't think the price of the Liebherr is correct...it should be more like close to $3000. But if anyone could tell me where I can find it for $2,200 I would be most grateful as I'm on the hunt for one now... :)

David: As for heating...not that big of a bill since electricity in Minneapolis is pretty cheap... :)

Indeed the sectional is Kramfors from IKEA. It has been holding up pretty well. We have had it for almost 4 years now.

I would also get some contemporary lamps and change the picture arrangement on top of the dresser (which I would keep). A couple of accessories of this sort would work well I think...

Hey,
Thanks for all the comments and suggestions! Right now we are more inclined to getting a new one...I'll re-check the measurements and see if an IKEA one will fit the space. I'll share the pics once it's done! Can't wait!

This sounds like a good idea. Maybe this can work also in place of an old medicine cabinet?http://urbansardines.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/sometimes-its-the-little-things/

Does anyone know where to find premade bathroom niches?

Any ideas for sushi bar stools/chairs? The regular counter-height stools are too high...
I'm trying to go for something contemporary and different from the regular dining chair...
Thanks,
Ana

Thanks for all the suggestions! I may end up using a vinyl rug. Does anyone know if stores like Home Depot or Lowe's carry this type of material by the yard? (so that I can cut it to the size I want)

vertigo: thanks!

Apartment Therapy New York | Good Questions: How Can I Protect Hardwood Floors from Water Damage?

Another type of panels that would work well are the panel curtains (KVARTAL system) from IKEA: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/categories/range/10374/13289/
The good thing is that they are cheap and the height is easily customizable.
Good luck with your project!

Apartment Therapy Chicago | CHI Good Questions: Replacement Closet Doors?
3/10/08 02:01 PM

Hi,
I'm moving and I would like to donate a bunch of furniture (IKEA stuff mostly but in very good condition). The problem is that the charities I've contacted do not accept glass-top tables (I have a desk, a dining table and a coffee table all with glass tops)...I can't also seem to be able to find someone in my area interested in picking up such items. Do you have any suggestions? Do you know of any charities that take glass top tables? If you have moved in the past, how have you dealt with this?
Thanks!
Ana
