That is really gorgeous. And the metal plaque used as a jewelry hanger is clever, too.

Absolutely stunning.

Do you by any chance know my mom? The green chair in the living room, the brass lamp, even the Cosco stool were all fixtures of my childhood. (You've put them all together much better than she did, though. Sorry, Mom.)

Your place is nice, but I favorited you for that write-up.

Sticker. (Although it was a shock to the stickler in me too.)

I've lusted over the vintage Jieldes, too, but I've purchased three floor lamps in the last 21 years: one for $14.99 from Ikea, replaced years later by a $24.99 one from Target, replaced just a few months ago by a chrome library lamp for $79.99 from HomeGoods--and that last one was a bit of stickler shock for me.

Is he planning to just discard the stove? If so, and you pay for repairs, he should give it to you. If he plans to sell it on Craigslist or something, you should definitely lowball him based on the argument that he won't have to wait for money, have it hauled away, etc. If I were you I would find a way to keep it providing it isn't cost prohibitive--but I'm like you, in love with those stoves. I've been looking for one for years.

This is insane and amazing! (I too like seeing a variety of homes on AT--some are achievable, some aspirational, and some purely genius fun.)

Ten out of ten if you get the point of finding even one object in a room (I missed a cushion). I too can pinpoint an Ikea product instantly in a TV show.

Unfortunately this would do me no good since my beast requires me not only to walk her to the food dish if she is hungry but also to stand next to her while she eats.

Very clever. I might get one of these now. I liked it the way it was but was afraid of anyone walking into the room immediately IDing it as IKEA.

I love a lot of things about this room...but I am dying to see more of that kitchen with the jade green cabinets.

I love this room, but I think I voted for it last year. Are you allowed to enter the same room multiple years? Or am I just thinking of a very similar room?

Wow, tough room over at Ikea Hackers. You'd think she'd eaten the babies instead of making a crack about them being on leashes.

I like the glitziness of the finished product but it does look like about 150 stitches waiting to happen. It would be fine over a sound supporting table top. She could probably find one at Ikea. ;-)

There's a photo from your tour in a post on the main page today, so even though I am a year late I have to say how gorgeous and inspiring your house (and kitties) are. You can hit me in the face with that teal anytime.

I'm curious as to how people can tell from one picture on the Internet that something is a gorgeous, valuable antique and not a nice but pedestrian reproduction. Please show me what the giveaway signs are.
