How Do I Make a Whiteboard?
Im not sure the cost, but white/frosted glass works very nicely as a white board and looks great if mounted properly. Cheaper than White boards themselves and Im pretty sure a glass shop will cut it to size.

Storing an Ironing Board in a Small Apartment?
I picked up a mini iron from Ikea a long time ago. It has a hanger attached so it hangs in the closet when not in use and sits on a table top when in use. It was $5 and has served me pretty well.

Do Asiatic Lilies Develop Seeds?
Most Hybrid lilies are sterile, but if the lilies you have can produce seeds, a pod will form where the flower was. Wait until this has dried out before harvesting. Upon splitting the pod open you will find hundreds of seeds.
