Recycling Old Stuff



Do you ever have those pieces of furniture you have acquired and just have been sitting in a box or drawer and not sure what to do with? I’m guilty of this!! I try to off and on go through the said drawer to remind myself what is in there and it just so happened one of my misfit toys err adult collectible found a new home . Many of you may have seen them before and they come in different styles. Mine looked kinda like the one in black & white except for that big red X, I never had a ceramic bowl.  But what I did find in the other bin drawer labeled kitchen stuff was a small tin bowl and it fits! Also yes I confess I have a labeler and try to keep mildly organized. Anyways I made some modifications to the sink, removed the shiny (cause you know how much I love shiny furniture – sigh I sanded forever on the bedroom set - lol) added wonky panels to the bottom to hide cleaning supplies and upgraded it to running water.  More minis to come, I have quite a few things in the works, I just need to remember to take the before and then the after pictures. Sometimes I get too excited and forget to take the before pics. 

So my question for you now that I have shown you my remodel is do refurbish/re-purpose any of your minis? If you have I would love to see what you have done! 

Have a great week everyone.
