Have A Very Techy Breakfast

This laptop table tray by Zyane Tan combines two of our favorite activities: eating and computing. Now we might not feel like such slobs when we usually get crumbs all over the keyboard while browsing the morning news. Too bad we don’t have an extra $3,000 handy. [Unplggd] … More »

FoodSexVideo.com: Cooking For Hot Girls

I can’t speak for the rest of The Frisky staff, but my own cooking skills are fairly limited. (And by “fairly limited” I mean eggs and pasta are about the extent of it.) It’s not that I’m not interested in learning how to cook, it’s more the fact that most of my hobbies… More »

The “Full House” Home Is Way Nicer Now That The Tanners Don’t Live There

Not to ruin the small screen for you, but characters on TV don’t actually live in the houses shown on shows. No, those exteriors shots are of homes where real people live.

Weekend DIY: Paint Your Very Own Striped Bathroom

There are a few features I dream of having in my future home. The list includes a dishwasher, a washer and dryer, a radiator that doesn’t clank, and a striped bathroom.

Another Genius Use For Bubble Wrap

Bubble wrap is making a comeback, people. We’re not sure, however, if this means that we’ve regressed to childhood, or if people are getting more inventive. Either way, we had a good chuckle at the bubble wrap tie, with the plastic material hidden underneath to annoy your boss with during meetings. Now, here’s the 2010… More »


DIY Trick For Your Old, Beat-Up Wood Furniture

After seeing these hilariously beaten-up, wooden stools I totally had an I-can-make-that-myself moment — and wanted to share, because who doesn’t have a totally beyond sand-paper repair banged-up piece of wooden furniture? An old table? A clean-lined chair? The more dented and imperfect the better. How to get your own? Take said wood stool/chair/bench/table and… More »

Would You Live In A Women-Only Apartment Building?

An article in the New York Times this week about women-only apartment buildings in New York City brought back memories of my first college dorm way back in the mid-’90s. It was the only remaining all-girls dorm on campus and I was in the last class of freshmen to live there before it became co-ed. More »

Craighton Berman DIY Coil Lamp Kit

While we could all hang an unadorned light bulb from an extension cord for light, most people prefer chandeliers, light fixtures, and lamps that add a decorative touch to rooms.
