Aint Life "Crate?"
Well, everyone, I'm pretty much over the moon happy about THESE GUYS:
They're my two new crates I scored over the weekend.
And they're rustic. And they're worn down in all the right ways. And, ahhhhhh, they are SO charming!
Super bonus??? They were only five dollars a piece. AND, my mother-in-law insisted on buying them for me.
SOOOOO ... I got them for FREE!
And I am completely thrilled.
I CANNOT WAIT to use them in my home decor.
I'm especially excited, because, if you look carefully -- you can still see some of the print work on the crates. This one reads "Maplewood Orchard":
Now, they are SUPER dirty. And, I'm still not exactly sure how I want to use them.
But, thanks to Pinterest, and some wonderful bloggers -- I'm definitely NOT at a loss for ideas.
I loooooove what I see here... using them as a shelf/storage area:
And I'm totally into the idea of using them as a nightstand, or an end table too:
I'm also seeing a lot of folks putting them on rollers, which I think is super cute ...
But, we'll see. :-) I'll definitely let you all know what I decide.
I'm still working on getting the blog up and running as well. So, let's hope I get around to my new crate friends sooner rather than later.
Have a blessed week! And let me know if you've ever scored any great crates, where you found them, and for how much!
