Recycling and Revamping Kitchens in Texas and Colorado!

It's All About Pine Beetle Kill
in the Colorado Rockies
 The large umbrella-fashioned ceiling is made from pine tree bark. The tree trunk central to the design, along with the legs of the bar, came from dead pine trees. A beetle infestation has devastated many mountainous states. Industrious carpenters and artists have played the hand dealt them by Mother Nature. They've taken the pine tree remains to make furniture and use as construction materials. For more information about pine beetle kill and projects, here is one site that provides more visuals and explanation.

To get the rustic look desired for their weekend get-away, one Denver couple looked to their "backyard" for construction materials.

In Houston, a homeowner
decided to dismantle her kitchen. She removed all the doors to the cabinets to create an open French farmhouse look. It all began one night . . . . She sat on her kitchen floor with a glass of wine and contemplated the best look she could achieve on a zilch construction budget. This is what she came up with:

She also painted the cabinets in a soft distressed blue, added a new deep farm sink and 
stainless countertops. She placed her collection of copper pots in the small unreachable 
cubbies above. By keeping the original cabinetry, she saved money while managing to create a customized space.

When supposed leaked photos for a new ground-terrain gucci replica Megatron were leaked this week for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, a lot of chanel replica us were left wondering if they were like many photo scoops of the past. In other words, fake. Director Michael Bay warned us last year that we would be getting a lot of hermes outlet officially sanctioned disinformation for the sequel and this seemed to be a prime example.
