Organizing My Office

I have been organizing my office.  I have so many files and design inspirations clipped 
from here and there.  So many books to leaf through and to search for decorating ideas.

Last week I mentioned to our carpenter Brad, that I wanted some crates.  I told him
what I wanted and he went into his workshop and started creating for me.  Each one
is slightly different.  He uses recycled wood and lumber scraps for every unique crate.

When I saw this one, I just knew it was meant to crate some of my many
design and decorating books.  I love it's old chippy look.  It's so primitive
looking ~ and I love that!  I painted it a celery green color and added some
wonderful graphics from our own Graphics Fairy.  I think this vintage French
Chocolat label is so very charming.  Can't wait to start organizing all of my
books in this crate.

I will be showing you some more crates this week.  I am thinking about
selling them and filling special orders.  Let me know what you think.

I am joining ~


Okay Bentley ~ help me pick out some designs for a crate for all
of your many toys!

  1. Your crates look marvelous! I also adore all your tartan/plaid things. You just have a lovely way of putting these vignettes together. Charmed as always.

  2. Oh my, I love those crates. I wish I had seen this before I got wicker baskets for my cubbies in my sewing room! Very pretty, as is everything you do! Hugs to Bentley.

  3. So cute! Lucky you to have a Brad! I need him!

    I so so need to get my office organized. It's so messy I can't even thing in there right now. But it's so warm already I have to get my veggies into the ground. I need a helper!!!
