The cart in the last picture can also be seen in the first picture; yet it's a completely different shade of blue. I'm confused.

I love many aspects of your home, but I would like to challenge you on your lighting choices. You mentioned it was one of your biggest challenges. You have a lot of torch lights that give just an awful, stark glow. Try getting creative. I saw a house tour once that had a giant birdcage with cafe-lights strung inside. Maybe use some battery-powered picture lights to illuminate your art. Just some ideas.

One of my favorite aspects of AT is finding great design and solutions for small spaces. 2700 square feet?

My town has a HUGE antique mall that has an entire section dedicated to these stamps. I might have to give this a try!

My entire house is 550 square feet and my 5000 BTU air conditioner does just fine. I also have ceiling fans, as well as several table fans, in each room to help circulate the cool air.


What Size Air Conditioner Do I Need?

I went years without an air conditioner in my 550 square foot house until this year when I finally purchased this little guy:

It works GREAT, but possibly because I have ceiling fans in every room, as well as a few desk fans. A little cool air with some good circulation does wonders... and saves a TON of money in both my electric bill and the fact that the unit costs a cheap $120.

That dyson fan is an ugly, over-priced piece of plastic. I just don't get it.

I thought this looked familiar. Why are you recycling old posts?

So they took an old wood box and made a swing. Sorry if I'm not blown away with the creativity of this.

Best storage baskets I ever bought were from Kmart:

They are made of plastic so you can take a hose to them in the summer to clean out those annoying dust bunnies that seem to collect. Plus they come in various sizes and shapes.

Looks great! I just hope that in six months it doesn't end up looking like the 'before' pic just with blue walls.

...and I was feeling lucky when I the price of gas fell $.04 as I was pulling into the station. Maybe I should head to the thrift store!

@Miller8786 the cheap ones will, but if you invest in quality ones they last forever. My wreath I purchased from Pottery Barn on clearance after the holiday. It's gorgeous and cost $13 at the end of January.

My favorite part of this tour has to be your bathroom vanity light, because I have the same one and it just reconfirms my awesomeness. :)
