The chairs are great, I love the lines of chairs like that.
I also love the room!  The color, shape and built ins.  I wish we had built in book shelves in ANY room in my house.  Smiley
Congrats on the new house.

I searched "PVC" and came across this.  I think it is wonderful and I don't even drink alcohol!  How has it held up?  Did you paint it?  Great job.
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: For Bento-enthusiasts and newbies! (kind of long + now with pics!) on: August 23, 2008 09:45:00 PM
If you don't want to invest in a traditional rice cooker, you could always buy a microwave rice cooker.  I would use one of those when I was too lazy to wash the regular rice pot (doesn't happen now since my husband is pretty reliable about cooking rice every other day or so). Plus, they are super fast and cheap - a small one is around 5 bucks at walmart.
I also refrigerate my rice all the time.  In fact, every time I bring lunch to work it goes in the fridge and warms just fine in the microwave.  I am not sure about long term refrigeration as rice doesn't last too long around my house, it is cooked and eaten almost daily.
I also use the lock and lock containers - they usually have the mL listing on the bottom if you are really watching for amounts in your bento.  You can even find them with little dividers inside so you can keep your sweets (like fruit) from other things like rice and meats.  It also allows you to easily remove the items not to be nuked.
Try the Asian markets around you - I am not sure what is near by but I live outside of Dallas and have TONS of Asian markets around.
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's your weird guilty pleasure? on: August 23, 2008 04:42:48 PM
My husband just thinks this is so weird, but I eat spaghetti, lasagna, or almost any pasta dish with white rice (short grain).  I even do it with canned pasta like Chef Boyardee.
I also like peanut butter sandwiches with sugar.
And Spam. lol
My husband salts young, green, not ripe, mangoes - or pickles them.
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Searching for info on velcro murals! on: August 11, 2008 04:40:10 PM
Here are some mounting suggestions for tapestries, one of the suggestions is velcro.  You could get industrial velcro.  Also, you could sew or glue the soft side of the velcro to your muslin or canvas (whatever you decide to paint your mural on) and the stiffer (poky) side of the velcro could just be stapled to the studs in your wall.  The holes from the staples are so tiny, so your landlord probably wouldn't notice the little holes along the top of the wall.  The nice thing about the velcro idea is that you could use the velcro along the top, sides and bottom to give your piece a little more stability so it doesn't wave around if someone passes by it and prevent the cats from getting behind it.

I am actually moving this month into a place where I don't want to paint the walls and I am going to use this idea to put up something in the dining room (which is what made me search out murals on craftster in the first place).  If I get around to it, I will post a pic on here.
