During our Spring Home Cure over at Apartment Therapy, we've been busy making over all of our spaces. One space that really stood out was this simple sun room makeover. Once the random items were cleared out, a few simple pieces from IKEA were brought in, along with a few strips of Flor tiling. Although it can feel pricey to outfit an entire room in America's new favorite carpet tiles, these two strips work out great and give a softer feel to hard floors. Make sure to check out another view of this space here on Flickr. Have you made a recent change in your decor? Snapped a photo of your playroom before it was demolished by your little ones? Put up a fresh coat of paint in the nursery? Make sure to tag your Flickr photos with 'Ohdeedoh' and we'll be watching!

I never understood those people that had 'fun' doing math, but if you can relate it to home decor I totally get it. I had so much fun putting together a living room for under $1000 that I decided to do a bedroom as well. Not everyone may see your bedroom, but it's your retreat and shouldn't be forgotten. If you're into the eclectic modern boho look, this room can be all yours for $1,000, with a bit left over to buy yourself some fresh flowers. Like any kind of budget decorating, online classifieds, thrift shops, DIY projects and hand me downs are always a great way to save some money. If you're looking to start fresh or are not the DIY type, here's how you can create this look and stay in your budget. Spend the money on the things that are timeless or not as easy to replace and then accessorize.

It must be a flash back of building forts as a kid, because we can't get the idea out of our minds of having a bed outdoors. When we saw this Elipse Bed from Gloster we immediately ripped it out to save. Considering we have never heard of this company, it probably signifies that it's out of our price range as well, but we're still dreaming of summer and forts anyhow.

We know a couple that is lucky enough to both be able work from home. Well, they were miserable, until they created this home office 'Door code.' It's a relationship- and life-saver that you can practice yourself, whether or not you or your S.O. work from home. If you're struggling to separate the 'Home' from the 'Office,' you can use this door code to communicate with friends, family or roommates about your, um, availability. By just taking a glance at your home office door, any would-be distractors can figure out whether or not you're open to interruption. What do you think? Is this something you might use at home? Of course, this only works if you have a dedicated home office with a door separating it from the rest of the house. If your home office is a multi-purpose room, how do you communicate your availability to housemates? Tell us in the comments!

Hanging on my wall are these two great looking and useful wood peels that we use to pull pizzas out of the oven. I got them for Ursula and I to use and was at first stymied as to how I'd store them. After oiling them and using them once, I decided they'd look great on the wall, and they do. I used a shiny brass screw to hang them and put mini over biggie.
