I love your term "kitchen bling". So funny! :)

While I'm certain it could be done successfully without the 80s/90s vibe, I haven't seen it yet.

I used to have a bathroom that looked just like this, but putting things on the walls was not an option at the time. Simple solution? I bought a black dupioni curtain panel, and used Steam-A-Seam for a no-sew sink skirt, complete with inverted box pleats. (It looked sooo sharp!) To attach it to the sink, I used adhesive-backed velcro, which peeled off easily when I was ready to move.

How sweet of you to do that for him! I wish my apartment looked that cohesive...

I'm waiting for the Trading Spaces-esque ideas to start rolling in. But seriously, I'd leave it as-is without any faux fixes. Having to look at it every day until you can afford the switch will be the strongest incentive you have to save every extra penny and get rid of it asap.

Not my style, and I could never have done this to the original, but guess what? Not my dresser, either. Glad you found a way to keep this dresser working for your space.

As for the MCM furniture restorer, the complaint seems a bit short-sighted to me. Isn't this the kind of thing that keeps her in business, anyway?

Hmm...my home has three of the exact same lamps pictured, in addition to the kitchen soap dispenser and mirror above your sofa. And yet my place doesn't look nearly as cohesive as this. Great work!

Ditto to Blandwagon. I just moved from a 100-year old building without any exposed brick, and we had millipedes there, too.

I can't believe this is even up for debate. Google "Christmas tree fire" or check http://www.usfa.dhs.gov/citizens/home_fire_prev/holiday-seasonal/treefire.shtm

Such cute ideas, but when I was growing up my mom treated Mason jars like liquid gold. Giving them away now feels wrong as a result. ;)

Thanksgiving leftovers are the best! I've made dinner for 1-2 before, but always made at least 6 servings of everything so that I could enjoy the holiday a few extra days. :) (And they freeze well!)

It would make me very happy to wake up and walk into that kitchen every morning. Beautiful work!
