There is a serious flaw in the design of washing machines and dryers. I am not claiming I know how to fix this flaw. But one day, someone will figure it out. Until then, we will have to handle it ourselves. What’s the flaw? It’s that huge, laundry-eating, eyesore of a gap behind the machines. It’s an 8-inch deep abyss at my house and it taunted me every time I walked by.Follow the link for more details.

As a renter, I couldn't make the kind or changes I would like to this laundry room, but having to pass by this unsightly mess on the way to the bathroom all the time was hard on my eyeballs! I got some advice from my nephew the contractor on how to hang a curtain in such a space and he recommended the Ikea wire curtain holder.
Every day, at least a dozen times a day, I have to pass the intake vent for my HVAC system...it is sooooo ugly! I tried painting it the same color as the wall but all that did was make ugly a nice color.I had seen a wooden cut out wall décor at HOME GOODS that size wise, might work; but just didn't want to spend the money. When I looked closely at the wall décor, a lite bulb went off, and this is what happened next:
