I painted a VITTSJO desk white without sanding or priming. It was a complete PITA and I know from experience with this and other projects that "simply slapping a coat of paint on it" is never as simple or as easy as it seems.

My biggest living room problem is how dark everything is. I have 3 kids and everything we own is dark. All of my favorite rooms are light and airy, but our living room has dark furniture and dark rugs, and a bad layout.

These are great. I am with Longorious - it's hard when you are on a tight budget and don't want to make the "wrong" choice, but cannot necessarily afford everything you want. My biggest challenge is IKEA. I will decide which system I want and then go to buy it and get distracted by all the other great/new systems...!

We have an American Leather sleeper sofa that folds out to a king sized bed. It's very comfortable in either configuration. I have 2 small problems with it - the first is that it's too long for our tiny Chicago foursquare, and the second is that it's in microfiber fabric, which is a nightmare with kids. If I could afford it, I'd buy the same couch again in leather and the Q bed version. We found it at a department store outlet, so we got it in 2006 for less than the price of an IKEA MANSTAD.
