These days we don’t really get to Abandon the Cube as much as we’d like, but this week we’re in sunny Atlantic Beach living the dream. And by dream I literally do mean living a more vivid dream. I read once that people along the coasts dream more vividly and live life a bit more […]

I found another dresser with a decent frame on Craigslist. Yes, I check out the listings every few days for cheap, sturdy furniture that I can refinish and hopefully sell.
