New Space Saving Pot Rack

Just installed the new pot rack to free up under cabinet storage space.  Dale lovingly slapped together this extremely long bar height table island thingy.  We've since decided we will be cutting 2 feet off one side to use as a built in coffee and wine bar.  To the new shorter table island thingy we'll be adding two more legs and the side apron trim.  The aluminum barstools are stackable for easy storage.

Antique Chair Makeover for Greenhouse

Before, I will be painting with exterior paint and reupholstering with sunbrella fabric.  I'm leaning towards tangerine for the paint and a bright multi colored design for the seat.

Christmas Tree at the Container Home

Country Christmas at the container home.  This huge cedar juniper is located just outside the sliding doors, so it was chosen as the living Christmas tree.

Oh Christmas Tree!

Check Out the Great Room

This is the new room addition on the container house.  It is 16 by 16, and we feel so cozy in here this winter.  Last weekend we installed the wood burning stove, and it absolutely warmed the entire house perfectly during our very cold spell.  Temperatures were dipping into the 20's in Smithville, Texas.
