so i had these three soda (or as well call in central PA … pop) crates that i discovered in my basement when i bought my little inn. they sat in the basement for some time, because i just didn’t know what i wanted to do with them.
then a couple months ago after painting my kitchen, i discovered i needed something to fill this big blank wall, and as with most people’s kitchens, i need some extra storage/display room.
so after a good scrubing, cleaning and a quick sanding … check it out.
they are super convinent as they’re located to the left of my stove (i’m left handed), so it’s a quick reach for salt and pepper. i also keep my measure cups and spoons here along with a mini cutting board. these things get used every morning for breakfast.
and yes, i did buy the measure cups i spoke about ealier. and yes, they are as beautiful and cute as they were online. and yes, i probably won’t use them for fear of breaking one.
i just hung the crates with a couple nails. i didn’t even need to drill holes in the crate since they already had holes on the bottom. (the jars to the right hold my paper muffin liners – again a very commonly used item in my kitchen)
i kept them simple. uncluttered. with the things i use the most often (and a couple pretty things to look at for good measure).
i’m pretty happy with how they look and function … and it cost me zero dollars … doens’t get better than that!
