Above are 2 sweet children's chairs a before and after picture... It is amazing what a little paint can do to give a little life back to something that was going to be thrown away. They are in great shape and very sturdy. From what I was told they are from a Sunday school room and were used in the late 1950's till recently... Paired up with this little white table I am hoping there will be tea parties and lots of fun..
With just a little bit of effort and a little paint these old chairs have new life. It got me thinking about how much "stuff" we just throw away without really thinking about it. I really try to recycle as much as I can. From donating clothing that is still in good shape to the homeless shelter to taking old batteries into the recycling center. There are so many things one can recycle... Here are a few ideas:
1.Old eye glasses many eye doctors offices take them put new lenses in for people who can't afford new ones.
2. Cell phones, there are many organizations my favorite one is Komen for the Cure.. This benefits research for breast cancer, to learn more go to www.connecttothecure.com
3. Take old towels, blankets and newspapers to your local animal shelters, they are always needing these.
So before you throw away "stuff" check to see if you can donate, it can help save lives, give the gift of eye sight and help abandon animals and last but not least help our earth by not filling up landfills..
I would to hear from you all on your recycling efforts:)
Cheers for now
