Hey, I'm back with another installment of Fixer Upper Friday. Seeing what I see in this home at 35-45 82nd Street in Jackson Heights is going to take a bit of imagination on your part.

Happy Independence Day weekend, Ya'll! I've been taking a break from renovations and projects to enjoy the three B's — biking, beach and BBQ. We've had guests every weekend since summer began and the guest rooms are booking up fast for July and August. It's been great fun biking, kayaking, and beaching it by day and cooking, eating, and drinking as the evening cools. I've been taking lots of photos, especially when we're biking through Orient State Park, winding through Orient town, then down through the backroads of lavender farm, but I've had little time to post to the blog. So, prepare yourself... photobomb up ahead.

I got an email asking how I can tell a recycled kitchen will work for me. Good question! The cost savings will be completely negated if it ends up not working in your space. Here are 5 things to keep in mind if you're shopping for a recycled kitchen, plus, a real-life example of a kitchen I've been considering — and how I discovered it won't work.
