We keep the quarters in a small jewelry box on the dresser (for laundry) and the rest gets dumped in a vase on top of the refrigerator. It's almost full so I'm loving the suggestions from this post!

We just moved into a new apartment (with a garage!) and I am very excited about being able to refurbish furniture I find at garage sales and re-sell them on Craigslist.

I already have a dresser to start with!

It's too bad my husband's cat loves to pee on these things.

I miss my cheap, Ikea, colourful bathmat :(

You can clean almost anything with baking soda, white vinegar and boiling water.

I just got a great calendar from the 1970's with different fruit for every month that I plan on tearing up and framing for my kitchen.

I have bought books for this purpose but haven't ever gotten the strength to actually do it.

Sunday's the day. Sleep in, Farmers Market for sweet corn tamales, fresh flowers and fruit for the week, back home for a nap on the couch. :)

It's from Target!

I just used that contact paper to cover the inside of my boring, white medicine cabinet. I love it so much, I'm going to frame it and hang it in the living room.

I love that you wrapped hemp around the cord. I'm going to do that with my curtain rod!

Try the As-Is section at Ikea. Find one there and dye it, or use it as a pattern for your own slipcover. Since you're only using it for a pattern, it doesnt matter what it looks like.

I like the Target print better. If I had to choose one, I'd probably get the IKEA one, buy some fabric that I like and have a pattern to make a new slipcover.

I like the idea in theory. It's pretty, but my cat would be right through it.
