the octopus, pig and horse are just silly, but the chair and antler seem like something you might actually see in someone's home.

@deirdre Rocker is the Eames Molded Plastic Rocking Chair. You can get it at DWR but I am guessing since Anna is a student it may be vintage or a reproduction unless she splurged on it :)

Anna I love your DIY on the nightstand, so cute. And I actually didnt even notice the door until I saw the comments!

love this! i agree with everyone who says more of this on AT please!!

i also agree that its weird that people complain about the budget on this when AT is generally filled with crazy asperational stuff that the majority of us couldnt even dream of affording. you have to consider what he was able to DO with $500 which was alot! its not like he blew $500 on a fancy wine fridge or something, he renovated an entire kitchen. Pretty amazing to me, and this is coming from someone who is unemployed and defintely cant even afford to spend a single cent on anything that is a non-essential right now!

i dont know why i looked at this when i knew it was going to make me laugh. Angle tipped highlighter? Really?

i think sometimes its OK to have a "junk drawer" just as long as your whole house doesnt become one giant junk drawer. :)

Fun place, beautiful kitty. I'm pretty sure we had that blender when I was a kid!

i was actually thinking that the "gratitude" word was used to express Mary's own feelings about being able to participate in the project. that was how i took it, but i could see how it could be taken another way. really nice space though, very pretty.

Having never been to Detroit, it is good to get the scoop from the locals who have shared here in the comments, looking forward to watching that doc on You Tube in a minute.

The decay is just so strange to me in these photos. They look like they have been abandonded more like 100 years than 50 or 40... Strange.

as the parent of a particularly pukey tuxedo cat, i love the "dont puke" sign, it made me LOL when i got to that pic in the tour.

love this house, so much personality unlike some of the other "modern" places that are sometimes featured. very inspiring tour!

Great bones here, althought I think there are probably some great low cost options you could have used for disguising your shelf clutter. Hide your clutter, and your place will seem a million time bigger (I say this only from experience in a tiny apt). I like the use of the instruments on the wall.

Any two people who can live happily together in 380 sqft and not want to kill each other deserves some kudos!

i agree about the sterile qualities of this place, i think its possible to be both neat AND have personality. its interesting though how the living room has such a burst of personality with the mask wall, so i like that. i also think the bathroom is really pretty and nicely done. Sterility aside, lovely place!

Living in earthquake country, that bookcase makes me REALLY nervous, but I guess you dont get much of that in Michigan LOL. I like the use of color in the living room the best.

the flatscreen idea is a good one, but it actually appears that she has some sort of HVAC unit there under the tv that probably isnt removable. so, probably wouldnt give her any extra "footprint" (is that the word i want?) but maybe would at least help to make it seem a bit more spacious.

talk about teeny tiny, wowzers!

I like the mix of masculinity and modernism.

And I am more tired of people hatin' on the Keep Calm poster than the poster itself. Seriously, just let it go.

Nice work Sean!
