Talking about recycling, this floor, which I did myself, is made of recycled tiles.
And so is the paint (recycled)!!

Great design Eklectic. You have peel and stick paint…How might one recycle paint? Did you just throw a couple of used cans of paint together to get another color? If so I like the color combo…It goes well with the tile floor.

Hey Ms D,
the bench is and old wash bas sin holder on which is a piece of plywood covered with my attempt at wood burning “pictures” of our pets.

And PJ,
I do gather paints that are called “oops”, use them as is or mix them up to get a color I like. As well, friends and family will “donate” their left over paint, and again I either mix them up or use them as his, as well share with friends who might want/need.
As well, Rona, here in Canada has 2 lines of “recycled” paint.
I do prefer the first, actually second way as that means a lot less paint going to the “garbage” because most people will not take the time to bring them to the special places/time set up.
And what I do not use in the house, goes for arts projects: either mine or a friends!!!

Great looking entrance, E! I very much like the pattern you created.

I get oops paint too…but for my Halloween decorations. You can save some serious $$ that way!

I agree! I wait until the local Sears Store has the oops paint down to 97 cents a gallon. My wife and I use it quite a bit.

Very nice design although it interferes with my obsessive compulsive need for symetry. :)

I’m glad to hear you’re recycling materials. I have a ton of tile that was left over from a remodeling job at my wife’s work. I’ll be replacing the tile in our entryway and adding tile to the masterbath with it. Great way to save money and the environment.
