Recycled with Love Collectables Revisited

 

Revisiting Old Friends to Make New Friends

Recently, I began making Recycled with Love Collectables again. But now it is just for fun. Since I had already covered a lot of acreage with painted decoration and had developed a high level of skill, I wanted to try something new.

Here’s my latest project. It is a small one drawer and open storage area part. It’s good, solid wood with dovetailed drawer. Height is about 27″ high, 12″ deep and 18″ wide. It fits perfectly into my kitchen corner nook. So I am creating a usable conversation piece in an otherwise dead corner.

Collectables Revisited

I had neither the patience nor the skill level anymore for intricate decorative painting. As a result, I decided to use other decorative media. It turns out that there are so many things to use for decorating. They include DUCKTAPE®, knick knacks, ribbon, buttons, erasers, plastic flowers and much more.
