The only thing I would change...I don't like that you have to walk through the bedroom to get to the kitchen. But, it looks great!

No. Mache has much smaller leaves. That is watercress.

Love the kitchen! Great use of space. And Spencer is stealing his 15 min of fame! Watch out Grumpy cat! There's a new kid in town. :-)

I don't think those are security bars on the windows. If you look closely they are overlays that are laid over the window. See the window with the air conditioner? It kind of lays over the air conditioner. Still want to know what and where they came from though. Very cool idea.

I registered at Macy's and C&B. I really, really, really regret registering at C&B. I registered for the majority of my items on C&B. I got married 3 years ago and almost every item from C&B has had an issue. My everyday dinnerware chipped within the first few months we had it. Granted, C&B does take it back for exchange. But, 2 months after my wedding they discontinued the pattern. The glasses (we registered for heavier glasses) all chipped, ceramic lasanga pan cracked in half in the oven while cooking dinner for friends. It has been a nightmare. I don't have kids. We don't treat our plates rough. Salt and Pepper mill, cracked in half. pepper corns flew all over my kitchen. I keep telling myself that I should have registered at BB&B or Pottery Barn. These items are supposed to last throughout a marriage not breakdown and need to be replaced 1 year out. All of the gifts from Macy's are fine. No problems. Well made.

A tip to let lettuce stay longer....I put it in a water wash with a drop or two of grapefruit seed extract when I get it home. Drain and shake out excess water. Wrap in paper towels, wet the paper towels just a bit and store it in an open plastic bag. The paper towel/plastic bag helps keep the moisture in the leaves. Granted, if you leave it a day or two, the outer leaves may get a little wilted. But, IMO, tossing one or two leaves is less wasteful than tossing an entire head. Then, every time I take out some lettuce, I'll change the paper towels and re-rinse. Also, with celery, wash, then wrap tight in Aluminum foil. The foil will keep it cold and crisp. No paper towels on this one. I've had celery stay crisp for more than a week and the lettuce stays great for about a week and a half to two. The Grapefruit seed extract kills bacteria and is usually the main ingredient in some of those produce sprays that you can buy at the store.

If you go to his website it shows a picture of an outhouse. No bathroom. I would add a bathroom. Mostly because I wouldn't want to have to take care of the contents of that bucket in the outhouse. But it is cute!

Adding Eucalyptus Oil to the bedding wash (about 10 drops). Will keep those suckers at bay. The oil kills the mites. I also add it to a spray bottle with alcohol and use that as a mattress/pillow spray. After a couple of days I saw a difference when I started doing this. Breathing much better and no congestion first thing in the morning.

The look for less posts should be capped at $1000. If they can't recreate a look for less than 1000, it shouldn't be posted. Just an idea. It should be a real challenge.

I have #1. It doesn't go over the door. It goes over the side of the tub so that you can lay things flat. The doors in my apartment must be an odd size because I never find an "over-the-door" anything that works.

Do not use contact paper. I had the same cabinets and the sticky ripped the wood right off in some places then, I was screwed with my landlord. I know they sell cabinet covers that adhere with static electricity. That would work. I also have painted fabric onto walls with fabric starch. That was easier to remove. You may find something here or Good Luck!

I had the Danby countertop dishwaser. We lived in an apt that was built in 1940. I found it worked great. It also saved us money on water. We paid for our water and when I got the dishwasher our bill was reduced by $20 a month. We moved to a new apt with a built in and I gave it to an older woman who lived next door. She loved it too. Now, I have the portable washer and dryer and I love them too. If you don't like doing dishes, this is great fro two people. Any more than that and you may have to do multiple loads.
