If you just so happen to have 30 000 spare bottle caps and lack ideas of how to utilize them, check out what one Russian pensioner did. In the midst of Russian Taiga, a secluded Karmarchaga village now has a house, fully covered in colored bottle caps.

The pensioner kept collecting the caps over the years, till she had enough to cover all the walls outside. The woman hammered all the  30,000 caps herself, organizing them in recurring traditional patterns and animal portraits.

Mrs Kostina also decorated several other household buildings nearby, making the yard one of the very few sight-seeing objects in the area.
