I stumbled upon this quote today while google searching painted furniture images. It completely matches the last post I wrote regarding my DIY and crafting philosophy. Love it!
"Reuse. Repair, repaint, reinterpret, revive, redeploy, or simply relish the things you have. The idea that we can dispose of things easily weakens our links with the stuff we own...Revamp, reupholster, and rearrange. If you do offload, find a way to recycle or redistribute. Someone will love what you have grown tired of."

Just this afternoon I began experimenting with some old spice jars I have been collecting. Tomorrow I'll post pictures of the end product!
