Folks are so cranky! You love it and that's what matters. There's nothing like seeing your fresh finish on a piece of furniture you've spent hours and hours loving.

Why so many haters? I know small isn't for everyone, but I don't get why the small houses inspire such attacks.

This is incredible. Not an inch of this house says "we would have done we really loved, but we were thinking about resale value"!

Am I the only person who thinks ... 999 square feet? COME ON. Of course this is amazing, it doesn't need to be squeaked into Small Cool to get a house tour.

You guys are a bunch of irrational, judgmental babies.

When I stay at hotels it's a treat. Slap on some crisp white sheets and a used mattress is no different. For all the New Yorkers afraid of bed bugs, don't you have a bed bug cover on your mattress anyway? I would rather buy a mattress from someone who will let you into their home and look you in the eye than a Sleepy's salesman. People claim they got bedbugs that way too.

I could afford a fancy new mattress, but I'm the sort of person who would sleep on hardwood if left to my own devices. I simply don't need one. To the person who suggested we ought to work three jobs to make the money -- Jesus Christ, get a grip.

We can't always get what we want.

Thanks for posting, the projections were beautiful.

Seriously, AT commenters are a bunch of wet blankets. Can you paint? Paint your doors black to make your walls look more interesting in contrast. Your white trim is what makes it look so dark, but painting the trim would not be worth it. And curtains would be prohibitively expensive, even if you make them. Collect lots of cheap art and go crazy -- I think the carpet will recede into the background. If you don't have white furniture, thrift some and paint it. Put lights everywhere and it will glow.

LOL @ Heather! I do enjoy a glass of capers ... but only if we're drunk and eating them with leftover pate and stale baguette. And he says he doesn't entertain!

Go to thrift stores. Make a point to stop into one every time you pass by, or once a week. Sign up for Freecycle. Be patient.

I really like the Salvation Army "super centers" and Habitat for Humanity ReStores.
