Most of the time people throw stuff away, even if it´s perfectly fine. As I like to have things for life I don´t like seeing things been thrown out. I always try to find someone who can use the things or I even reuse them for myself.
I worked that very well with my office. The only thing I still needed was a sink and a closet. In case of my office kitchen, I knew I didn´t want to spend much money and I also knew I will never get my company color as a kitchen closet. What to do then??? Right, having a look at ebay classified!
It was as if I asked for it, right away I found the perfect fit for 25 € *YESSSSS* Just some cleaning and getting my own dark green furniture color and I was ready to rock ‘n’ roll!
I also got an old shelf which was pretty ugly black. After sanding all the parts that I wanted to varnish in my green color my kitchen looked like an exploded puzzle.
I vanished the pieces twice. While waiting for them to dry I started with the small things like the picture frames which I wanted to change into a vintage look, just 3-4 paint brushes and it was done.
I also cut the countertop and on the left over space underneath I installed some hooks to hang my towels. I like things to look tidy and that was the perfect way to be practical.
The secret of recycling is definitely GREEN, GREEN, GREEN!
