The Big Reveal

Didya see it? Did ya? Did ya?

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!

I must say that aside from being more satisfying in the way that only a real newspaper can be, the print version is also better in that my photo caption actually contains information (and the modern in mn blog address) about what's in the photo. In the online slide show, you rather pointlessly get only my name with the bathroom vanity photo and because the article text lacks any associated reference to the cabinet hack, I think it leaves one wondering WTF. On the other hand the desk lamp hack is captioned better in the slideshow (if you can ignore the typo).

What's the caption in the NYT print edition?

The print article caption reads:

"...turned an IKEA desk lamp into a wall sconce and an IKEA cabinet into a bathroom vanity topped with an IKEA butcher block counter. (Instructions are at her blog, www.moderninmn.blogspot.com.) The sink is a small Miro Ceramica from irawoodinc.com."

Much more informative than the online caption, don't you think?

I LOVE your front door. I am looking for something similar. Where did you purchase it?

Hi Keith, etal
It's just a generic full view door. I don't remember the brand, but most every major door manufacturer has a similar style.
