new online store

***UPDATE AS OF April 2011***

Goodsie is really an easy platform to use and I did make some sales.  Alas, all bags are gone now.  Thanks for looking.

I found a fun-looking website, goodsie, that allows you to build your own stylish eCommerce site for no coding skills.  I played around with its Beta version and setup to sell left over inventory (for now, until I make more things later on).

Fingers crossed I’ll make some sale. 🙂

Small table/shelf for the Water Closet

BUDGET:

  • $3 or $0… part of a large chunk of stuff I got from a guy in a moving sale

  • $0 for paint (left-over )

TIME:

  • <1 hour

A new feature in this apartment that I never had in any previous apartments was the separate bathroom (with tub and sink) and water closet (just the toilet).  I was told it is a very “San Francisco” and “charming” characteristics.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I bring reading materials when I “do my business”.  There’s got to be a place to set down the materials when you need to.  However, with our small space, it needs to be something with small foot print.

SO, I’ve been on a search for that perfect little table.  Finally, over the past weekend, I found it in a moving sale!

It was used outdoor with planters on top of it.  There was quite a bit of rust, especially on the tray.

After cleaning & painting, ta-da!

I left the pole section the original color to provide a little contrast.  Now we have  a little “table” in the water closet! 🙂
