There is high temperature spray paint - I have used it to repaint grills. Maybe that is what she used.

What if you used contact paper that was opaque instead of frosted to cover the glass. This would be removable when you move out.

Ummm - I currently use a spray bottle of water and my hair dryer to get the wrinkles out of shirts in the morning before work. Thank god I am a geologist and slightly wrinkled t-shirts are ok....but wouldn't it be great if I could have no wrinkles!!

I too loved the tiles at Topkapi, however I truly fell in love with the smoth pebble mosaics on the floor.

Here is an example

But then again, I am a geologist and love ALL kinds of rocks!

My friends think that maybe I am addicted to succulents. I must confess that I have been known to break some pieces off of "public" succulents and try to get them to root at home, so maybe they are right.

Please remember also that Aloe is toxic to dogs.....just a friendly reminder.

Why not just put some river rock in the bottom to keep the beer/ice from falling through...then put the ice in and the beer and enjoy the day. Why is a liner needed at all - just let the water run away.....

I think I would just go down to the marina or sailmaker and start making friends. Hopefully you can get one cheap and just have the sailmaker cut/sew and grommet for you :) Spinnakers are NOT cheap...so maybe this wouldn't actually save you money, but at least you would make some friends :)

Oberlin already has monitors on all of their dorms. However, it is not room by room. They have a contest to see which dorm can reduce consumption from past years.

They also have a great web interface that you can play with - I wish the new dorms here at the university where I teach did the same!

I had a glass globe fall the other day....I was sure the cat had broken something, but it was just gravity.

It was in my laundry area and boy was there glass EVERYWHERE! But I can say that my washer and dryer (and the entire area around them) has never been so clean!

Where is that table from?? I too am looking for a farm table. I am about to give up on finding a used old beat up version as I have been haunting auctions in my rural neck of the woods with no luck.

I like the Eiffel chairs paired with it personally - but I think both would look good.

Just found this post as I am struggling with cake-frosting too. Hoping you will see my post and let me know if you tackled that job and if so how??? I have drywall with a THICK texture on it. We are going to have our bathroom redone soon and may just demo the walls in the bedrooms and have the drywall guys put up new drywall -- it is that bad and very daunting to us to think we could tackle it.
