The idea hit me last week to add a vintage clothes hanger to the crate to turn it into a caddy
and I already had the perfect vintage hanger!
First, I cleaned the crate and removed the brittle leather strips from the sides.
Then I painted it with a few coats of a seafoam green color and distressed it.
I cut the clothes hanger to fit inside of the crate
Then, with the hanger in place,
I drilled small holes through the crate and the hanger
so that I could glue a small dowel through them
to securely hold the hanger in place.
The crate even has two dovetailed corners, giving it more personality!
It fits six pint size mason jars perfectly.
I think a mix of fresh wild flowers in each of the jars would look so pretty.
I like the combination of the vintage items together,
what do you think?
Would you use it to hold flowers or as a caddy for something else?
'til next time,
