Every time my husband goes out of town, I always seem to come up with little projects to do around our house while he's away. This weekend I did a pretty simple one. And one that didn't cost me a ton of money either. Score!
As I have mentioned before, I've been hard at work trying to get our "family" room to feel more homey, and of course this takes time, even years. I had pinned this pin
on pinterest some time ago, and finally found the perfect "find" I had been searching for this weekend at a Salvage Antique shop!
There is a place in Phoenix called "Sweet Salvage" that I found out via someone I follow on instagram who lives pretty close to me in the Phoenix area. A friend of mine is really into vintage antique finds so I knew she'd be perfect to ask to go with me to check this place out!
What you'll need to do this:
Mod Podge (outdoor kind not gloss not paper kind this kind has a green label on it) (I got mine from Michaels)
Handle Hardware (I got mine from Hobby Lobby)
Okay so first I put the mod podge inside the crate. Why did I do this? Well, the crate is being used to store blankets, and since the crate is very old, antique, I didn't want my blankets to get dirty, so I sealed the inside with the Outdoor Mod Podge. Worked like a charm. No more dirty inside.
Next, drilled the holes with my drill of where the handle hardware needed to go. Switched out the drill to screw driver and used the drill to screw in the screws. Screws were from Home Depot and only costed a dollar for the pack of 6.
And here's the final product!
The wall behind the TV is my biggest "challenge"for this room. I honestly don't know what to put there. It's just awkward in terms of the space and what to specifically put there!
I scored this little lantern from Hobby Lobby and got one of those flameless candles to stick in side. It was a perfect color match to our accent pillows which is called a "Sea foam green." Sea Foam green has not been an easy color to match! :)
