Yikes! I just looked through all the photos, and even though I know that carpet and wallpaper can be removed, I feel like it's safe to say I would have not bought that house. Good work! Very much improved.

Before & After: Major Overhaul of a Moldy Bathroom

@rachaelc1986- I'm obsessed with Bountiful Baskets! I'm a bit of an evangelist about it. There's enough produce for my two-person household that we only do every other week. It's completely changed the way we eat, having a mountain of produce. The early saturday pickup means that I'm up and out of bed anyway, so I come home, put on the coffee and just prep everything for easy eating later. I love the variety and the total brainlessness of just swooping up your produce and taking it home without trekking over an entire grocery. Now I run in and out of grocery stores with just my spices, pantry staples, dairy, eggs and protein.

Dreamy! I'll be on the lookout for something similar now.

The floral shop I worked at used this technique, but we'd fill the vase with water first, dry any drops on the rim off, then tape it. We'd use a narrower kind of tape from a floral supplier, and much fewer strips. For something like this, maybe just once across each way, like crosshairs. Too much tape, and you can't fit everything in! If you did want to change the water each day, it's pretty simple to pour it off through the side, keeping a hold on anything that looks like it wants to fall out, and then fill back up again.

I'm shocked by the comments on here! The old kitchen was very standard issue, the new one is a stand-out. Those new cabinets are gorgeous, and I want the counters for myself. Clever swap with the door, lets in so much more light.

The after is lovely! However, I'm newly obsessed with painting something that green color, too fun for summer. And were those little swoops brass handles on the before cupboards?

Hello, gorgeous! The before has great lines and potential, but the after! Adore the chair it's paired with and I'm deeply envious of the newfound craigslist knobs, but would love the kooky ornate ones for a project of my own. Let me know if you put them up for sale @futristichuman. Kudos on a lovely project.

I've never considered wallpaper in a kitchen before. The idea of the last one (dead space above cabinets) I like the idea of wallpaper instead of baskets or ivy garland or whatever decorative nonsense gets piled on top of cabinets sometimes.

Gorgeous! I'd add a patterned squishy rug, and live there with my records.

I just finished Quiet, and adored it! It was very comforting to me to know that I wasn't broken, and to stand up for the need to have more time and space "away" than other people.

Yummy! What a fun piece, and I'm sure it will have a whole new life. It's very sexy-loungey-cocktail-party to me. Love it paired with that rustic table, but would be equally gorgeous with something glassy and brassy.

My poor rental bath has a single bulb on the left side over a single plug and is tiled right up to the medicine cabinet on the other side! I'd dearly love an overhead light or a matched pair....(certain I've had "crooked" makeup light vs. dark side the whole time I've lived here)

I love the word "blandification." Does every kitchen need white cabinets and subway tile, granite counter tops and stainless appliances?

I've been doing this for ages, love this trick! Single servings of smoothies, and I can just drink it straight out of the jar! Perfect. Until reading these comments it'd never even occured to me that a mason jar would be unsafe on a blender.

I always feel badly that the "kids" posts, the ones with color and whimsy, are the ones I like best. I've considered 3 and 4 recently for a pop of color on my bedside table.
