This Company Makes Custom Wooden Bed Frames With Built-In Pet Beds

While some see furniture as a piece of decoration first, others tend to be more practical with what they put in their homes. It’s a legit concern either way, but, in the end, practicality always wins. After all, in the long run, we begin favoring how convenient something is to sit on over how well the leather brown matches with the piano and the rustic cabinet full of glassware.

Well, this furniture manufacturer is keeping true to the “natural is beautiful” formula, but is in every other respect all for convenience and practicality. Just check out this king-sized bed with all of its storage real estate and with a smaller add-on of pretty much the same, except for your pets.

This Graffiti-Covered Abandoned Highway In Pennsylvania Looks Like A Scene From A Horror Movie

There’s something eerily beautiful about abandoned places – they look surprisingly calm yet still manage to make you feel as if someone’s watching you. Perhaps this feeling is what attracts urban explorers to the abandoned stretch of Route 61 in Pennsylvania. That, and the fact that the road is almost completely covered in graffiti, making it look like a colorful river flowing through the Pennsylvanian forests.

People have completely covered this abandoned one-mile stretch of Route 61 in graffiti

Nicknamed the Graffiti Highway, this stretch of road is located about two and a half hours northwest of Philadelphia. The story that lead to the road’s abandonment began during Memorial Day preparations back in 1962.

The road has been abandoned since the early 90s

The officials of a nearby town named Centralia decided to burn the excess amount of trash before the Memorial Day Parade. However, by doing so, they accidentally ignited a live coal vein located underneath the town. This lead to major fires and eventually to the town’s demise.

Even though firefighters tried to extinguish the fires, they kept on coming back so by the mid-80s, the government relocated as many residents as they could. It cost over $42 million to relocate over a thousand people and demolish 500 buildings.

Centralia slowly started to become a ghost town with barely any residents remaining. Sometimes people would wander to the town and leave graffiti markings on the abandoned road.

After the movie “Silent Hill” was released in 2006, Centralia caught everyone’s eye once again. Soon enough, more and more urban explorers began flowing to the town, leaving graffiti markings on the road as they left. By 2010, nearly all of the road was covered in paint, leading to it being nicknamed The Graffiti Highway.
