You could always just lean into the weirdness of it with some tacky era posters and say, "oh well. now it's an ironically ugly kitchen." Good luck!

Discerning, agreed. I can see them on preppy penny loafers, but not my shower curtain. Then again, if the 80s can come back, anything can happen.

This inspires me, but it's also good to hear words of caution when it comes to work and cost. Sometimes I'd rather just have the cheaper furniture and live with it than something "fabulous" that ends up being a project I never actually invest in. I should really learn how to upholster.

Ice marbles!? Yes! I am doing that straightaway the next time we get a big snow! The snow graffiti is another nice one. I wonder if spray paint chalk would work just as well?

My Uncool Kitchen Tool: Dental Floss The Cheesemonger

Craigslist your stuff. If you really do want to live in another neighborhood, you have to unload some things. Be ruthless. Think of the money you'll save not forking out for storage as a down payment on a larger place (and things to sit on in that place). You could also see if family might use it with the understanding you may wish to repo it at a later date, a deal someone might take if they're just starting out and need something, anything, now.
Good luck!

Good suggestions, but where are the recipes? :) I'd love to see a workday lunch series with easy, good, preferably affordable lunch ideas that go beyond the obvious salad.
