Okay, I’m COMPLETELY impressed by this Nerf storage solution from aryll in our Flickr pool.

It’s hard for me not to like any primary-colored couch with simple lines, like lilmissbride’s.

  1. “Am I the only one starting to daydream about warm summer nights outside?”

    NO. I can’t stop. I just want to sit on that still-warm-from-the-sun stone and lean on the tree and listen to the background sounds of friends having fun. Sigh. Come on, summertime …

  2. When I lived in Sweden we had a shower knob where you could adjust temperature and spray volume separately. Plus the temperature knob had a temperature lock button. Very cool! I miss it.

    • Apart from the temprature lock button (sounds so useful!) that sounds like my parents shower. My dad loves it because he inexplicably likes to be pounded with cold water like he’s under a waterfall or something.

      They also have two shower heads, one directly above and one off to the side so you can either have it rain style or keep your head out.

      • Sounds nice! My husband would love it. He always wants to take a high pressure cold water shower after mowing the lawn in the summer heat but unfortunately it’s not possible with our current shower knob. The cold water pressure is low and full pressure is already warm.

  3. They have Star Wars pancake molds too… My husband let out a little squeal when I brought breakfast to the table on Saturday. Yes, I am a domestic goddess!!

    • My mom bought the Star Wars pancake molds for my husband on his first ‘Family Day’ with us. He didn’t even like pancakes until I made him a Storm Trooper shaped one (with a Darth Vader spatula nonetheless).

  4. Our mini Nerf gun armory wall has saved me from lots of tripping when going in and out of my eldest sons’ room. The funny thing was, my hubby loved it soo much he made a special request to construct one for his Nerf and soft air guns too! Guess that’s what happens when u live in a house full of boys…
