My grandmother used to say that all the time.
It was a favorite saying of hers and it truly does make sense.
with new ones that are filled with inspiration.
and inspired a project that I want to take a closer look at.
My office is a multi purpose type area
it is my office,
my craft area,
my sewing room,
my inspiration area,
my project area,
my catch all area.
Add to that that it is a small room
so not a lot of space for using larger pieces for storing those bits
and pieces that projects need.
I have my grandmothers china cabinet that does hold a bit of folded fabrics
photo props or stacks of china but I needed something smaller that would hold
things that tend to clutter up my desk area.
Something that was in keeping with the room and its style
and that was easy to move around and use in various places.
Like under my desk holding fabrics & drop cloths
Or in the corner holding those stacks of magazines
Something that was vintage, rustic charming
and would help with storage.
Like simple pine crates.
I love crates. LOVE.
This one was inspired by some of the vintage ones I have seen in various places.
to stain it ever so slightly and give it that aged pine look.
or as I am showing them with the bottoms on the bottom
to where you want to use it- so I added chunky industrial wheels to one of them
and it might be my favorite. 😉
as well achieving the ‘aged’ pine finish in a separate post
