A Shout Out to the Earth

It's Earth Day.  While I'm no Al Gore wannabe, I do what I can to be a mindful citizen and good steward of the resources I have.  Aside from my relaxed recycling efforts, I'm learning to better reuse/revive some things around the house.  Here's the proof:

The people who owned our house before us left several pieces of furniture in the basement:  some really cool tables, old doors, a chair and highchair to name a few.  One such item was a squatty hutch/wardrobe type of piece.  After sanding it down some, I used some paint I had on hand and bought pretty sweet new knobs.  It isn't perfect by any stretch of the word, but I think it's a nice complement to my craft (or "crap") room.  

 **Yes, I know those knobs are uneven.  Like I said it's an imperfect piece.**

I think my next project like this will be the highchair.  Perhaps a bright red?
