Today I am happy.
You might even say I'm THRILLED!
Today I just can't help but rave about the little crate cubby that is changing my life.
You might think I'm exaggerating.
I am not.
This 12" x 12" addition to my bathroom storage makes me smile.
Several times a day.
And then the other day when I was looking for things to paint with my leftover Typewriter Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, I saw this and remembered how good the Typewriter looks with natural wood. So I painted the outside of the crate with the milk paint. I replaced those two really makeshift knobs with the closest thing I had in my stash. The ones I had were wooden so I ended up painting all the knobs with the milk paint as well. I used two or three coats of hemp oil on the crate and one coat on the knobs. (the oil does not settle into the metal like it does the wood so you only need one coat)
This is an amazing little crate. It was converted to a storage cubby by the guy we ran the barn sale for. I just lightly brushed over the embossed lettering. Some of it got painted, some of it didn't.
Even the little drawers were hand made. Each one is a little different size than the others. The original knobs (the remaining ones at least) are welded in. That's why I didn't just replace all the knobs so they would match.
The big flaw it had was that the drawers fell out of the back. So I just cut up one of my old belts and tacked them across the back. The perfect solution.
Back to my overflowing joy.
This little cubby is the perfect addition to the crates I've had in there all along.
It gives me a place to put all the little things that I had in various places all over the bathroom.
And when you combine it with my other new little cabinet . . .
Look at my medicine cabinet!
Look at all that space. Nothing falls out when I take something out. And, if I want to put something in there - I can.
But that is nothing on my happiness scale compared to these 9 beautiful drawers.
Sammy likes it too.
But I don't want to share.
I'm staking my claim.
This is MY space.
No cat hair allowed.
Make something wonderful today!
