This was the shape we thought worked the best...
To hang them on the wall, Mr. Right used long screws with washers on the end. This kept us from having to drill through the crates. Here they are all ready to fill...Filling is the best part. I turned to my decorator cupboards (this is where I put all the stuff that I buy at garage sales and don't have an immediate place for). Here they are all decorated up... They look great next to the pottery barn bingo board I copied last year...
Let's take a closer look at what's inside...A vintage silver dish holds old pocket watches that I picked up for a few dollars at a garage sale, The old Bible has a glass jar with vintage wood bingo markers and an old lid. I love the number embossers, silver whistle and jar of wood thread spools. The two wood dumbells were also a garage sale find.
I love the way this ironstone platter looks in the crate. The key is also a garage sale find.
A set of vintage Rhetoric books (I was a speech communication minor), a bottle of bakelite poker chips, an old shoe form and an apothecary jar with metal scoop all came from various garage sales.
Mr. Right put a few of his vintage tools on display (some from his grandmother) and I have more old books, a pair of dice I picked up at Goodwill and painted to look old, a collector bear I picked up while in Europe and a jar full of antique bottle caps.
Here you can see my love of old games with scrabble and domino pieces! I picked up the gravy dish last weekend and the ink eraser, ink, bronze powder and old lid are also recent garage sale treasures. I'm loving my new wall! It's given me a chance to display some of my favorite collections and it looks like it came together over time (even though we put it together in two days) For me, the cherry on top is the big letter "B". I knew I wanted either a large letter or number to fill the space between the crates.
Imagine my surprise when I saw the letter B (for our last name) at last weeks swap- sometimes things just come together like that. Let me know what you think! Love, Kelly.
