The feeling of our home will be simple, white, textured, charming.. a mix of scandinavian, dutch, haitian, african, asian… pops of color, natural materials, juxtaposition of all.  Sounds like we know what we like?!

I have always been drawn to little charming things – but I know I have to be selective not to overload the house and Momo.  Keep it simple!

But look here…~

Great baby shower gifts…

Renter’s Range options

04/25/2011 § Leave a comment

Unless it’s high end stainless steel range, the look of a clean white range might be better for our renter’s units.  So here are some options we are looking into.  Does anyone have experience with any of these brands?

Kenmore – from Sears / $356.99

GE – from Home Depo / $499.

FRAMTID – Ikea / $999.

LAGAN , Ikea / $269.

I heard that stripping was hard work – but really… it IS super hard.  Smelly toxic, scraping and rubber gloves and all.

Before and during… still no after.

I went through 2 strippers, from eco to more toxic.  It has taken me 3 days, and very little progress.
