Utensil Crate

5:50:00 AM

I'm making another crate today, this one is a tote...


I began by using old fence wood from the garage...
I cut it to lengths with my saw
and assembled the box...




 I painted it flat white.


I drilled holes for the handle and used a spindle from 
an old chair as the handle.


A skewer stick through the spindle keeps it in place...


I printed out the word "EAT" on my computer and used carbon paper to transfer the design to the box. Then I painted in the letters with a black paint stick and sanded the image when it was dry...




I placed a sectioned piece from the inside of a dollar store 
utensil divider inside the box...



Added decorative napkins and a glass jar for a little color...


And a beautiful utensil crate was born!


A great crate for inside or out!

Just a little note, 
this crate also works to hold school supplies...

  3. Love this! What an awesome idea! I love the extra touch of adding a word. How perfect to bring the utensils and napkins "out back" for a BBQ.
