Fozzie Bear's cousin. Can't find a content label and care tag is so faded it's barely readable. Any ideas what this is?

Well, I guess we bought our first house with no money down, and that allowed us to buy this next house. So maybe?

 

This house has a "breakfast nook" that we will be turning into a "pantry." Other than stripping the wall paper and painting it a new color (along with the putrid kitchen walls), any ideas for crazy storage things we can do along the window-less wall?

 

 

 

 

My former house was built in 1929 and it had a breakfast nook.  But, it was right next to the kitchen so we took down the wall and had new cabinets built and added a new countertop that extended into the former nook.  We added about 40% square footage.   Based on this picture, it does not look like this is right next the kitchen. 

 

Are you wanting to make it a kitchen pantry? or just a closet for storage. 

 

You could make it a small reading area?   It looks like a difficult room to use.

Congratulations! I am assuming that the photo is taken from the kitchen? As in the small room photographed is across from the kitchen? If you are planning on using it as a pantry, would you put doors on it? It would be a bit of a shame to close it off entirely as it has two windows' worth of natural light. What's behind the windowless wall? Any chance of knocking it out? Could you run plumbing to it? Just throwing out ideas! If storage is a must, I'm sure there are a number of creative solutions.

Man I really like this system.  Perfect for a larger pantry like that.
 
Or, install a counter and put your lesser-used appliances there.  They'd be ready to go instead of in a box, but out of the main kitchen gathering dust.

 

More Closet Talk

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
That is a great video and looks like a fantastic plan for using the closet.   But, I have none of those woodworking tools like that guy does.  Once I got them and the garage to do it, I might as well just buy a new house!  :)

 

 

Cedar closet question:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Has anyone ever installed cedar in a closet for storage.  My wife and I share a large walk in closet and I was thinking of putting up cedar.  I have been to so many estate sales where gorgeous expensive clothes were ruined by holes from Moths.   Sometimes in the summer when I let the dog outside, a moth will fly into the house and then I have get all commando to track it down so it doesn't destroy our clothes or my inventory.  I have some of those cedar blocks that hang on the rods in the closet.  But, I'm always paranoid that I still have moths and they are just nibbling holes in my suits.  I have seen some of the videos on using cedar planking.  But, I have also seen closets with what looks like Cedar chipboard/waferboard.

Found this old tie today.  Does anyone know:

a) who made this?

b) what is the small gold clip on the bottom of the tie?

Yeah, that guy seems more and more shady each time I swing by that place. He still doesn't even open the front entrance of his shop.

Yup, still gets my heart pounding.

While I still don't know what the "E. Del Soldato Bardi" refers to, I found out that the next line is an address in Florence for Sergio Rossi:

Via de' Tornabuoni,35-37/R 50123 Firenze.
