My daughter called this weekend to ask what she could do in her small apartment. She wanted a dining table when guests came & a desk.

DH and I watched a movie about an immigrant who created a huge table by taking panels off the wall and setting them saw horses. I suggested she do the same. But, ask her sister to paint the panels to create artwork for her wall when she's not using them as a dining table. She liked this idea. She also like the idea of being able to use the same sawhorses for her desk when needed. Big Grin To think my daughters, when young, used to complain how often I watched HGTV. I learned a LOT. Thank you for this!

I've noticed many bloggers who take an interest in design have houses. It would be nice to see some apartment dwellers providing this information to many people.

I remember someone asking about this months ago. It went on deaf ears. I believe there are more people asking.

Because this is the thread for the show "Design on a dime" which I don't think airs lately.
Try posting on the General Decorating Forum. Lots of help from a bunch of great people over there.
