@hayesms - I looked too and I could only find them on CB2. I could have sworn it was regular C&B but it was 2 years ago when we got them... http://www.cb2.com/knitted-blood-orange-pouf/s649981?a=501&device=c&network=g&matchtype=

@1910housetohome - The jewelry rack is actually a silverware drawer organizer that I got from Bed Bath and Beyond close to 8 years ago (I can't take credit for the idea - my friend came up with that one!). I looked on their website to see if I could find it or something similar but didn't see it. Sorry!

@ Yvonne Ho - The record is actually Jack White, Blunderbuss. The framed photo is Fugazi

@afj - We got the bear at Urban Outfitters (it's even on sale!): http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=28436137a&parentid=SALE_APT

@linda734 - The letters are actually cheap-o colored ones from the dollar store or somewhere that I spray painted with matte black paint.

For the hallway I actually got these magnets from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/css/order-history/ref=ohs_order_orderid?ie=UTF8&hasWorkingJavascript=1&opt=ab&qid=&search=104-0375770-3326652&sr=

And the metal was a roll of 1" wide metal with holes every 6" or so from a local hardware store. I can't remember exactly what it is called but I will find out and post. Way cheaper than a pre-made thing and if you cover it with photos you never see it anyway.

@Pi1 - You can make one! I just got a blank doormat from Home Depot and printed and cut out the words to make a stencil. Then I taped it in place and spray painted it. I also ended up trimming a little bit of the mat around the letters to make it more crisp once I was done.

I just got the Ragan Meadow Better Homes and Gardens outdoor sectional and am in love. It is REALLY comfortable, looks great, and still affordable enough to be okay leaving outside. We have already spent three warm evenings sitting and talking and drinking wine on the deck that would have normally been spent inside...

I used bamboo plates and a wood burner to create table numbers for my wedding. I loved the look. It's a great cheap way to make custom plates for any type of event, really.

If you are looking for stumps in the SF Bay Area, I recently came across a wealth of them - people drop off cut up trees at the corner of Hearst Ave and the Frontage Rd in Berkeley and they are free to take (I snagged 4 of them!). And there are even typically men around looking to be picked up for construction type work that will help you put them in your car.
