Egg Crate

Sometimes I like to shop Whimsy.  I love to see what all of my sisters bring, and they bring some really cool stuff.  This last sale I bought a few things, but my favorite purchase was my egg crate that my sister Mel had made.

I put it under the island in my kitchen.  Here’s the picture of before…


and after…


I tweaked it a bit to make it fit my home, just by staining it with Minwax Weathered Oak.


and I added some old casters I had…


I love an extra little farmhouse flair…


and the storage….I always love extra storage!


Plus….I don’t have to vacuum under the island anymore:)


Happy Girl.

I got a text from a sweet lady the other day who always thinks of me when she sees something I may like for Whimsy.  She came across a huge pile of vintage crates at a garage sale.  Thankfully I knew the lady, called her up, and asked if I could buy them all.  Again…

happy girl:)

So, if you too need a crate for your house, you can find some at Whimsy.


I didn’t realized how many of them were liquer boxes:)  Which is quite funny since I don’t drink, but they are still pretty cool:)


after a good cleaning, fixing, and handles, they are ready for the shop!


Which…is this coming Thurday and Saturday from 9-3!!!  We’d love to see you!  You can find the address and more information here.
