Pewter is actually an alloy made up of several metals. It is fairly soft and not as sturdy as say, stainless. It will show nicks and dents so one must take some care when working on this surface. It has a beautiful look and offers a more gentle look as in contrast to the more clinical look of its stainless counterpart. Pewter’s dark silvery color is muted and is not brash like chrome. Because it is a softer material it is easily shaped and stamped. A hammered antique look would mask some of the natural dents and dings that naturally occur on many kitchen surfaces. While the look of pewter is more of a traditional one, it could look right at home in a more modern or eclectic setting.
Even if it’s a little hard to believe, this cute sofa was made using a plastic pallet. The pallet was cut in half, and some stainless steel plates and legs were added to create stability and to keep the two pieces together. In the end, some cushions were added and the sofa was ready to use. It’s not only a very easy and straightforward pallet project, but it’s also comfortable seating.
Poured concrete counters offer strength, style and are seemingly timeless in appearance. They offer a natural, organic look for those who are wanting such in their kitchens. These counters need to be sealed well, perhaps more than once, to prevent staining. Poured concrete can be tinted to be any color you wish. If sealed it is stain resistant and can be cast and poured into any shape you desire. Its appearance improved with age, as opposed to many others that start to look weathered and dingy after just a few short years. While concrete is heat resistant the sealer is not and hot pots and pans should not be placed directly on top of the concrete. Likewise, cutting boards should be used as well as chopping directly on to the concrete could damage the sealant. Concrete, requires just a little bit of maintenance and is a very desirable option at a very desirable price.
