kimg924- I've read that Borax is bad for cats b/c they'll walk over it and lick their paws and it can be harmful if ingested. Just a heads up. I used it last summer and it definitely helped, but this year I think i'll try salt!

I think the fabric is hideous, but the frame is great. It doesn't look like so bad of a job. But really, why pay for upholstery services? There's way too much information out there- DIY, baby!

For now, why not throw a round turquoise pillow or throw over the parts that bother you- instant fix.

It makes me sad, more than anything. Sure, the colors of the crab are great. They'd be even better contrasted with the nice blue WATER where the crab BELONGS.

And oiled, bronzed legs in Alaska? Really?

Milk glass is definitely my new obsession. I pick up a few pieces a week. It's so easy to find. It makes me happy. The colored milk glass is even cooler, though. Pastel blues and pinks. Oh yeah. My current favorite purchase is a blue milk glass rooster container. :)

Just took a course where we discussed taxidermy art. I'm considering buying a foam taxidermy form that they use underneath the deer for getting the proper shape and size... it looks like a prehistoric lizard-like creature... considering painting it to match the decor... aqua blue? They look especially creepy when you glue glass eyes on

Kudos on having such a "homey" feel to a rented space. It's really warm and inviting.

Love the colors and the overall vibe. I just don't feel like the dresser and the desk really go. They look more country bumpkin than French. However, I'm also a college student and I know how difficult it is to have EVERYTHING seem to go together when you're strapped for cash.
I think you're headed in a great direction, but it does seem like a LOT of stuff in a small space (that was totally the pot calling the kettle black... but hopefully you'll be able to see my space too!)

Uh oh. It looks like I have some Atlanta competition. I thought I was the only one on here. And i totally agree that Atlanta is not in the Midwest.

Thank god i'm not the only one who was appalled that somebody would refinish such a gorgeous piece. Ahhh! (i'll admit the orange is cool... but that wood grain should not have been covered)

Maybe, but my place is cluttered with beautiful things. Maybe only keep things that are useful AND beautiful. :)

Okay, so if i was rocking a southwest theme (I'm not. I prefer Liberace-esque) I would certainly put this in my home. It's definitely different. How is it that i love this site so much but seem to disagree so radically with the majority of other readers? Oh well. I think it's hot.

Ugh! I want a pair of clear ghost chairs SOOOO bad. Unfortunately, I don't think they'll be popping up at any of my thrifts stores. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Craigslist, though.

I have two framed vintage magazine ads for hair products. Rexall hair tonic and one other one. I found them at an arts and crafts fair when I was maybe ten or twelve, and I still love 'em.
