Neat. Ok. Maybe now it'll live up to the name?

Thanks for all the great suggestions, everyone! There are a lot of good options and I'll definitely need to go check out my local Target.

UGH! We just got a new apartment and we have one GIANT wall running down the entire thing in exactly that color. I've seen tons of apartments in SF recently with the same color, too! Was there a sale on ugly, color-changinging-green-yellow-beige at Sherwin Williams or something?

Odin New York 01 Sunda.
Very expensive. Unbelievably sublime.
I've never found anything that compares. The scent would be impossible for me to convey, but Barney's describes it as an "opulent blend of warm woods and creamy vanillic spices." However, I think that description barely even approaches the complexity the actual fragrance.

Up close it looks really neat, but from far away it kinda looks like mold.

Oh! And maybe check out Etsy for some vintage wine crates. Those are a great size to stack to make skinny-ish shelves.

I had the same problem for bedside tables in my itty bitty apartment. I've come up with a not-so-bad solution: Muji storage!

We have a stack of these on one side of the bed: http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?Sec=9&Sub=38&PID=60
Which leaves just enough room for this on the other: http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?Sec=9&Sub=38&PID=3044

Maybe that tall skinny one would work for you. You could paint some pretty stencils on it or maybe fill some of the drawers with battery operated LED fairy lights to make it a modern lamp/side table. Hope that helps!

I've had the same one since I was a little kid that my mum got in her teens. My fiancé named it Lamb-y. It has the sweetest black fleece cover and looks like a lamb, hence the name. I use it ALL the time and have had to replace the actual rubber bottle part only once over 20+ years. It's great for cramps and when you're sick and you can put it in a cold bed 10 minutes or so before you're ready to jump in! I love that darn thing.

Real cute, but I can't shake the dread that episode of Tales From the Dark Side instilled in me. You know, the one where the grad student finds the tiny door in the closet of the room she rented? Tiny doors in closets are a big ole NOPE to me.

I have the Movie Steel sofa from CB2 and only a 28" wide doorway/hallway to my apartment. We unscrewed the legs to get it through with surprisingly little frustration. While it's not a sleeper, it's incredibly deep and roomy enough for my 6'4" fiance to sleep on it comfortably.

"...would go for $1,200-$1,500" will inevitably translate to $2400 in good old San Francisco.

I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Mix - which happens to have tapioca flour in it - and they turned out dense, not very puffy and the middles were a more than a bit raw after 28 minutes. Other than that, I followed the recipe. Any idea where I went wrong?

P.S. They still tasted marvelous.
