If you can't find anything similar, I'd suggest finding someone on Craigslist to make it for you. Just go find the fabric/w/e you'd need and ask. Or try Etsy's Alchemy area - post what you want, show the above pics, tell them you'll pay $X at the very most for it.

I like the idea of a real tree, but my hospital stay from the tree's sap would overshadow any joy I got from it in the 5 minutes it would take for the ambulance to get here.

Uh, no. Take care of the US first, then branch out. You still have the South to worry about.

And don't even get me started on the lack of coverage from the 'otas - South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota. They need love, too.

I love the pillows - that shade is perfect! Not too orangey, not too grey. Perfect.

The contest is VERY confusing. Plus, I just got an "error" saying that the contest will conclude on October 16th.

Somewhat off-topic: what about silver plate? I have tons of it and everyone has a different answer on how to clean it.

Do you guys have any ideas on what could be used instead of the tempeh?

My tip's already been mentioned, but I'll echo them: take lots of pictures, using lots of different angles. Bonus tip: experiment with the settings on your camera.

Another vote for indigo. It's an awesome color.

Many people that have animal trophies like this appreciate the animal's beauty, hence it being put on their wall. Not seeing the issue here. The damn tiger has sentimental value related to her damn FATHER.

Get over it, ya'll.

Francesca, they have one on the main page of the website.

I actually kinda like it. I'd keep it on the patio, though. A bit too much for my already eclectic apartment.

bepsf, that was my first thought as well. It would look adorable in a little girl's room with cartoony looking items and colors. But this is NOT "how to make a Mad Men headboard". This is "how to make a tufted headboard for your kid's room on a budget." For those that don't know what the bed in question looks like, I linked it for ya:

To adapt this for an adult, here's what I would do. You'd need to add at least another inch of batting, a better quality fabric (as well as add'l fabric to accommodate the extra batting), and attaching this to at least plywood so you can move it around. You could even get the chenille yarn in a color one tone darker than the color you choose for the fabric and it could act as a shadow of sorts, instead of a dark outline like it's behaving as now.

That is adorable. At this point, I need a house with 50 bedrooms and 50 bathrooms, because the "house pr0n" folder on my laptop now has over 300 photos of things I like and want to see in my house at some point.

i suck.

Until recently, I had a small crockpot that I use for an ethnicky dish i randomly made. Tastes a bit like chicken tikka masala. It's so amazing. NOW I NEED SOME!!!

I haven't moved in with my significant other yet (we'll be doing that shortly) but already we're talking about compromise. If ever there was a real life Dharma & Greg, that would be us. I'm hippyish and love color and funky shapes and mixing styles, and he's more of a traditional/modern kinda guy - clean lines and nothing more outrageous than a tonal print on a brocade fabric found in the tv room. We've already preliminarily compromised on the office wall color - I want a dark pinkish-red on all four walls and black accents, while he doesn't want it at all. So we've compromised down to 2 of the 4 walls. Oh, and typicalstudent reminded me that he's already compromised on my cat - he knows my animals aren't going anywhere, especially the cat.
