Hey there everyone! It has been a cold week here! Very cold!
When the sun popped out, I snapped some photos of the pretty white roses my husband gave me :) I thought this French fruit crate would serve as a nice bed tray. I love to see how many different ways I can use a vintage piece…you know the things you find at a flea market, the ones you really love, and you’re not sure how you’ll use it?
Now, I love white flowers…especially roses. They are so fragrant. When I walk by them, I’ll sniff them every time:) Also, I’ll move the flowers around the house, so I can enjoy them in more than one room :) This is a photo taken through the mirror of the armoire in our bedroom. It was passed down from my mom…one of my favorite pieces in our home.
Anyway, I’ve used the French fruit crate as many other things around our house…magazine holder, coffee organizer, and to add height to a centerpiece on our farm table. It’s turned upside down here, on the bed.
Used as an organizer on the buffet and hutch:
The same French crate at Christmas:
But I really like the crate as a bed tray…I like the contrast of the raw wood and the whites on the bed. I used a vintage grain sack for a body pillow cover, and a hemp linen sheet as a throw on the end of the bed…wrinkles and all :) If you’d like to read more about our reclaimed wood headboard GO HERE.
So, what about you? Do you have some versatile vintage pieces? I love the question “What will you do with that?”…I enjoy the challenge of finding the usefulness of vintage treasures.
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some warmer days…and my roses to start blooming in the garden again. Until then, I’ll enjoy some grocery store blooms on a French fruit crate :)
Have a lovely day!
