A Big Cupboard Door and Some Handturned Legs

This cute little fella is almost 100% recycled!

The top is a large pantry cupboard door from the 1950s and the legs were hand-turned balcony railings that I cut down to be legs.  

The black border around the green really made the colors pop.  I wasn't sure about this combination. I often use black in small amounts with green but to do the entire bottom black and the top green was new for me. I did an entire living room set in these colors, took them to the store and half expected that I would end up taking them home in a few months to repaint in a more sane color scheme.

I shouldn't have worried.  They were all gone within the month.
