I always knew I wanted to use it in this house, and I finally made up my mind as to where I wanted to put it. It landed on a wall in the dining area.
After we had it on the wall, Mr. Cut Off said he knew he had another crate around here somewhere. Did I want it? Duh,yeah. It took a little hunting, but he eventually found this Remington box in the barn.
After a thorough cleaning, it landed on top of the pear crate.
Since our walls are pine and will not be painted on a whim every few years, I was thrilled to have another surface (or two - or three) to decorate - something that CAN be changed seasonally or on a whim.
Along with a vintage toaster,
we've got a little Easter/spring thing going on right now.
There's my Vase Makeover project. . .
and my Easy Easter Bunting.
An old scale graces the top surface. . .
and these 2 blue pieces I inherited from my grandmother sit in the middle.
You'll get more peeks at these crates as things change throughout the year(s).
All is well in the Keweenaw.
