We used to keep our cereal boxes on top of our refrigerator, but I've been trying to de-clutter, and also come up with a solution for our kids to be able to get their own cereal in the mornings. THIS IS IT!!!! It looks great on our counter and we have very little space, so it fits just right!

Moderates temperature too, which is nice for my cold smoothies." —Kori Hale

Then they were so nice I got more for a second room. I blame the first long luxurious black faux fur sheepskin-shaped one. They’ve all already come in, and are just as wonderful. I want more... I will be getting more. I need furry walls. I just want to lay in them forever. They’re soft and luxurious, and magical. You’ll forget the world is awful. My dog still isn’t so sure how she feels about them, but she’s scared of grass so... we’ll ignore her review and say 9/10 (negative one for cleaning... kind of a pain but what fuzzy rug isn’t?? ...I’ll just use them in low foot-traffic areas or for seating — they’re still amazing.)" —Hilary J.

I used this adhesive film to turn two cheap Ikea tables into less-cheap-looking Ikea tables because I'm not made of money but I would like others to believe I am. Super simple to use and a ton of it for the price I was really pleased overall. The pattern actually looks like marble not a weird pixel-y repetitive pattern so that's great as well. Also it was delivered same day which was miraculous as my DIY inspiration tends to fade approximately 48 hours after I discover a project I want to do." —Spencer House
