Recycled Reclaimed Wood Coffee Tables

Recycled Reclaimed Wood Coffee Tables

Reclaimed Wood Coffee Tables

One of the most exciting trends in the last few years has been the surge of designers using recycled and reclaimed products in their work. Using recycled products is a great way to help keep the landfills from overflowing, save money and still get great products for your home. One the most fascinating niches in the recycling industry is the reclaiming of wood from demolition done in major cities with old factories, warehouses, public buildings and schools that were built when solid wood was cheap and used for just about everything--furniture, framing buildings, flooring and more.

Reclaimed wood is gathered by construction companies who work with city demolition companies hand in hand. The demolition has to be done more carefully to get the wood in good condition. This type of work is called deconstruction because much of the building is picked apart piece by piece. However, the resulting reclamation can turn up lots of solid wood for building projects.

Coffee tables are a great way to use the reclaimed wood. You can see the unique grain and color of the wood, and depending on the designer, get a traditional style table or something one-of-a-kind. Many of these projects are made-to-order, so that the customer can get a piece that fits their space precisely.

Here are a collection of beautiful reclaimed-wood coffee tables (and a couple dining tables) that have been made by independent craftsmen around the United States.

The table pictured above is a sample of the custom coffee tables built to order by designer Rustic Ridge Table Company in Nashville, TN.

Legs are made from iron pipes.

Recycled Wood Coffee Table with ShelfReclaimed Wood Coffee Table with Shelf by Plateau Metal

I love the mixture of metal and wood in this table. It has the rustic feel from the wood with a more industrial style because of the metal shelf. It can be used in so many different types of decor because of the dichotomy of styles. This table is made from cedar in Sammamish, WA.

Reclaimed Wood Coffee TableReclaimed Coffee Table by Perfect 45 Degree

This table looks like it is made from a cross-section of wood from the center of a tree. The colors are magnificent. Designed and built in Portland, Oregon, the Douglas Fir wood gives the table a lovely color and grain. Legs come off for easy shipping and transporting.

Another table by Perfect 45 Degree, this is the second dining table on this page. You can see why I had to include it though. Such a unique design. Also made from Douglas Fir, this table has a completely different style from the one above. The designer incorporates Cherry and other hardwoods into the design for accents. You can click on the link above to see all of the designs from Perfect 45 Degree.

As you can see, there are many variations on tables that are built from reclaimed wood. Some of the variations are from the wood itself and how it has fared before reaching the designer. If you are looking to add furniture pieces with character to your home, this is a great place to start.

Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller Rototiller

Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller Rototiller

Have you been searching for a quality rototiller, that has plenty of power and an affordable price? Finding the right unit can be a challenge, as there are many options on the market today, and not all of them are well-made! In addition, if you prefer to save the environment by going electric, then your available choices dwindle even further. Luckily, the Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller is an excellent solution, as it has a variety of different benefits and features to commend it to you.

First of all, it doesn't produce any harmful emissions, unlike gas tillers which contribute to pollution. This also means you won't be breathing in fumes while working in your garden, which is a nice added bonus! In addition, you won't have the hassle of buying fuel or refilling the tank in the middle of your project. Further, getting tune-ups will be a thing of the past, as you won't have all of the same scheduled maintenance to worry about. Essentially, if you've been looking for a rototiller that is stress free and good for the environment, then the Greenworks 27012 Rototiller is the machine for you.

Yet, you may worry about its power capabilities, and if it can tackle your gardening jobs. Many owners of this product are pleasantly surprised to find that its power surpasses that of their old gas-powered rototiller. In fact, it has been known to churn up large rocks, break through sizable dirt clumps with ease, rip through medium-sized roots and even take on hardened clay soil.

Greenworks RototillerThe Greenworks 27012 Rototiller features 4 tines that chew up the dirt, which you can remove for easy cleaning. Also, you can adjust the tilling width depending upon your needs, to either 6.25 or 10 inches. You'll likely enjoy the cord lock as well, which keeps the electrical cord in place during use. Some customers have commented that this isn't as reliable as they would like, but this is easily fixed with a zip-tie. Finally, the depth of your till is fully adjustable, allowing you to select how far down in the soil you'd like to go.

For the best results the manufacturer suggests that you remove any grass and weeds on the surface, and break up the top soil with a shovel. The Greenworks 27012 Rototiller will handle the job from there, allowing you to plant in freshly tilled soil! Also, with its compact size it is perfect for confined gardening spaces, as it has a smaller turning radius than bigger models.

This rototiller also comes with a 4 year warranty, which is twice the industry standard. Greenworks truly stands behind the quality of their manufacturing, and you can expect your tiller to last for many seasons to come. People also love how a design which is more compact and weighs less than bigger units, can deliver the same level of power. This is perfect if you've been having trouble handling a larger machine, or the effort of using a heavier rototiller is becoming a problem.

All in all, the Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller is an excellent value, giving you the most for your money. If you have a small to medium-sized garden and you'd like to lower your carbon footprint, then this is an excellent choice. You'll no longer have to deal with the problems associated with gas-powered units, yet you'll still enjoy the power and performance that the 27012 delivers.

Hot Pink in the Bedroom

Hot Pink as an Accent or Main Color in Your Bedroom

When it comes to bedroom decor, hot pink is no longer just for little girls. Mind you, pink bedrooms will never go out of fashion for girls of any age but I wanted to show you how you can add a pop of color that can completely change the look of a bedroom without being over the top. Using hot pink in the bedroom will make a plain room into a cheerful place to rest.

For easy ways to update and refresh a room the two areas to think about changing first are the bedding and the window drapes. You can create a whole new look without the expense of completely refurnishing. Here are some choices in bedroom decor that you can explore.

Adding hot pink to your bedroom

If you are anything like me, you will like making changes in the home. I like to be able to make a room look completely different with a few additions and changes. So I usually make sure I start off with a base of a color scheme in painting and decorating that is amenable to lots of different accents. For example, I like to have a plain color on the walls, something pale or pastel that can be used as a base to support more vibrant colors elsewhere in the room. The same with flooring. I do prefer floorboards and tiles but in the bedroom a plain colored carpet is just as nice. When you think about it, the floor and the walls are your two major areas of color - so think about those carefully in the very first instance. They you can swap and change as you like without having to start from scratch.

So what are the main color blocks in your bedroom (apart from the walls and floor?) They are the bed and the windows. Simply by changing bedding and curtains or other window dressing, maybe adding a pop of color in an accent - hey presto - you have a new room!

Regal Comfort Forest Camo Microfiber Comforter Bed Spread and Sheet Sets

I think this is a great set for anyone who likes a sort of rustic look - mind you I think the pink lifts it out of the mundane don't you?
It's camo as you have never seen it before. These sets have a hot pink flash which will look great in any bedroom. Available in various sizes.

More Styles of Hot Pink Bedroom Sets

It's always nice to get one-stop shopping options when it comes to redecorating your bedroom. Many companies are happy to provide matching bedding and curtains. These are the two big color areas in your bedroom.

Add hot pink animal prints for effect

As I said before, bedding and curtains are two of the major color scheme areas to consider when it comes to decorating and the joy of them is they can be changed easily and will have a huge impact on how your bedroom looks. Here I've picked out some matching suggestions. They are all tied into together by the pink zebra stripe or animal print theme - some just feature more than others. But what I wanted to show you with these is how you can complement each with the proper use of color - for example don't you think the addition of a black outer curtain really adds drama to the window dressing? You can achieve the same effect by using black throws and throw pillows on the bed and chairs.

Hot Pink in the Kitchen

Hot Pink in the Kitchen

Choosing Hot Pink for Kitchen Decor

When it comes to choosing a color for painting or decorating a kitchen, why not consider hot pink in the kitchen? This bright and colorful shade of pink can really brighten up a space, adding color and style to a kitchen in a home, apartment, office, or college dorm. This lively berry tone can be used strictly for creating a fun and eclectic look, for example, for female roommates in a college dorm. Or, it can be used to create a sophisticated, warm and inviting space in an area where families love to gather. The way you choose to decorate the hot pink kitchen and the accessories chosen can make all the difference in the appearance of the finished room.

To achieve a fun, youthful feel, choose really bold shades of pink. For a less bold look, while still using the same basic hot pink color, choose shades of fuchsia or berry. Some great ideas include painting an accent wall in pink while leaving cabinets and the other walls white or off-white. Or, you might choose to paint all of the cabinet door fronts the fuchsia shade, leaving the walls white or off-white. For another creative painting idea, consider painting the ceiling of the kitchen pink. Just remember to keep some white or off-white showing as opposed to having everything pink. A large, bold pink area rug, or a few smaller pink rugs could be used on the kitchen floor to add color and keep with the theme of the kitchen.

Set of 6 Reversible Placemats Hot Pink

How Pink to Go?

When it comes to adding hot pink to your kitchen you need to decide how far you want to take it. Do you want it to predominate or to provide surprising pops of color? Both work surprisingly well in a kitchen though I'm not sure my husband completely agrees. That said, hot pink is a real funky color that pleases more people than its paler more feminine pastel pinks.

Personally I like to use appliances and accents to surprise people. Here I've searched out suitable appliances that are functional and also attractive to look at. I've picked out well known brands that get good reviews. You can check those out by clicking on the links.

Add to that some nice table linens, towels and accessories and you have a completely new look in your kitchen.

Adding Hot Pink Accents

Other cute but functional items that can be displayed in the kitchen include fuchsia colored oven mitts, that can be hung from a knob on a cabinet door to add color and for easy access when needed. Consider hanging a bold, berry colored utensil rack on one of the white walls to display your cooking tools and make them easy to find at the same time. A cute apron with a darker pink or with hot pink accents would look great hanging from a hook in the kitchen.

For fun accents, try some fuchsia place mats. If none are readily available, cut your own from a roll of foam shelf liner in the proper color. Adding some dish towels here and there also give the kitchen a welcoming feeling. Place a bright pink dishtowel through the handle of the refrigerator, and wherever else one might add a little dash of color. For kitchens that have windows or a door with a window, consider hanging a light, airy curtain in a matching shade of pink. White stripes or white polka dots in the pattern create a fun look. If dining table chairs lack chair pads, this is another area in which you might use the pink color. If you cannot find pink chair pads to fit, consider buying ready made ones to fit your chairs and covering them yourself with an inexpensive fabric in your chosen color.

Pink candles and candle holders may be used to decorate a kitchen table. A sturdy vase with pink flowers also makes a nice, decorative accent. If you have any other furniture pieces in the kitchen, especially ones that stand along a white wall, you could possibly paint them a berry color to coordinate along with the rest of your kitchen.

Don't Forget the Backsplash!

Hot Pink BacksplashAnother location within the kitchen that may go unnoticed when considering painting is the backsplash area underneath the cabinets and above the sink. This is a perfect accent area to apply color to, by either painting or applying ceramic tiles which are perfect for an area that gets splashed with water daily.

Using a bold pink color in a kitchen can really make a statement. When used properly, this color can bring warmth and whimsy to tiny college dorm kitchens, friendliness to a shared office kitchen, and can provide a colorful place to gather, eat, and socialize in the smallest of apartments or the grandest house on the block. Consider using hot pink in your next kitchen decorating project.
