Make, all the way. Especially after I learned how simple and easy it is. The store bought ones are everything from awful to disappointing. I use half butter, half lard (yes, lard!! unbelievably delicious results!) and vinegar in the ice-water: perfect pie crust every time.

Don't like them. They remind me of those awful walpaper forest murals from the 70's.

My cats would claw my eyes out for even thinking of doing some thing like this to them. And they would be justified.

It doesn't look like a piece of furniture. It still looks like kitchen cabinets and counter. And it's not really a wet bar "remodel" but a wet bar "removal", as everybody said.

Jooly - you don't drink it. Why would it be gross?

My Chicago landlord and I have been sharing ideas on making our building greener. He's going to install solar panels and a green roof in the next few years. When I brought up grey water systems he started to do some research and is now talking about putting in a rain cistern for watering the porch and yard plantings as a starting point. It's a fantastic idea

Just in the last month our Edgewater back yard has hosted a HUGE city raccoon, a hawk/falcon, pigeons, squirrels, and a rabbit.

I didn't feel it but my two cats went SUPER crazy at about 4:30 or so this morning. I just kicked them out and went back to sleep.

What's the big deal? Really, people, get a grip of your germaphobia.
I saw the photo and thought "Hey, that's a great idea! My work-day routine would speed up significantly!"

Yet another instance of UO ripping off artists without paying them for their work/design? I'm no legal expert but to me this looks like blatant patent/copyright infringement.
