    4. Or one of these shorter CD towers that rotated like a Lazy Susan:

    5. Window scarves that usually added a touch of ~class~ to your parents' room or living room:

    6. Having a ~fancy~ armoire in the living room or family room, so that when guests came over you could hide the TV (but your family never actually did):

    8. Ivy stenciling — usually done in the kitchen:

    9. Decorative wall borders that usually matched the wall color:

    10. Shabby chic bedding that always looked like it was made out of your nana's porcelain dolls' clothes:

    11. Rice paper floor lamps that everyone got at Ikea and would always get a rip within the first two months of your family owning it:

    12. Slip-covered sofas that just made the sofa look like it was lazy and wearing PJs:

    13. This grey or black 32-inch TV (which weighed like 150 pounds) that had to be put on a substantial piece of furniture, so it wouldn't fall and accidentally crush you:

    14. Computer desks that took up 3/4 of a room:

    18. Hunter green accent walls, accessories, curtains...basically this color was EVERYWHERE:

    22. A "cool" VHS rewinder that no one actually ever used:
