Where is the stool from, the one that's used as a side table in the living room?

I did not know Amazon Prime had a special rate for students until I saw your posting! Made my day...

It feels staged. I like it as eye candy but it feels flat.

I also really love this particular house tour. The home to me comes across as thoughtfully put together, and not spare (i.e. cold) in the least.

Agree with BethA, would like to know the paint color of the front door!

Like: vacuuming, washing dishes (by hand), shredding documents, sorting mail, buying toys for the dog, feeding the dog

Tolerate: washing/folding laundry, brushing the dog (LOVE the dog, but allergic to her dander/saliva), cleaning refrigerator, grocery shopping, making the bed, reorganizing

Hate: taking out the garbage/recycling, bathroom (everything), refilling humidifiers (they are heavy and they drip while in transit), mopping floors, cleaning windows/shutters, cleaning stove, dusting, making the bed, folding fitted sheets, getting more dog food (it's a 50lb bag)

the spouse wants to buy a roomba. is it life-changing?

Nothing there says tea cozy. It looks like someone threw a piece of fur onto a tea pot.

My husband and I also used to live in Jackson Hts. With our very large black labrador. We moved from a 2-bedroom there to a 600sq ft. apt in Brooklyn. In our new apt, all of our furniture became ridiculously oversized. We sold all of it on Craigslist. We made countless trips to the Salvation Army. My husband had to let go of the six boxes of LPs that he been schlepping around each time he moved. We maximized our vertical space by having a wall unit made. It has 2 pull-down desks, cabinets, shelving, and my favorite item, a rolling library ladder! Great way to hide a lot of necessary but ugly stuff (shredder, printer, files, etc.). I got a lot of ideas from this site and I research excessively using Pinterest. I am now an expert on where to find normal sized armchairs, sofas and coffee tables. Furniture on legs, multi-functional furniture, using vertical space, drastically reducing what we own...Sketch out your space and measure and re-measure everything you are thinking of buying. For us, acquiring new furniture has been a very slow process (we moved in August). Every centimeter counts! I will admit that the first few weeks after the move were rough emotionally. The apt was full of packed boxes and there was no room to move around except for a skinny corridor we kept clear so we could go from the front door to the window. It's March now and I have only one unpacked box left! Best of luck to you. It's doable but it will be a huge change.
