Great Cover-Up--you absolutely can do this! Even with super-uglies left over from the '70s. Sand lightly, wipe off, paint white (or another pale color), let dry, sand lightly on edges/ areas of normal wear (try a drawer front first to get the hang of distressing). If you are really ambitious, seal with clear poly. Also, these replacement knobs are VERY inexpensive!
Cinnamon Dough Pumpkins (DO NOT EAT)---- 1 1/2 cups ground cinnamon- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce- 1/3 cup white glue, such as Elmers- --Combine all ingredients in a bowl and knead until the dough is smooth and pliable. Form into pumpkin shapes and lightly score with a toothpick to form the ridges. While the dough is still moist, place a small twig into the top center for the stem. Dry for a few days or speed up the process by drying in a warm oven (200F).
