crate & barrel

Crates2I love crates. I feel like Brick Tamland when I say that, but it’s true. I freaking love ’em!

Crates4Crates3Our contractor built us an entire home without installing any type of shelving. Not a single one in the kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedroom, mudroom, or closets. None. I know what you’re thinking. We must be crazy. There, I said it for you. Do you know what? I would have to agree with you. However, given that my husband and I built and installed all of our shelving in Little Green, I’ve come to know exactly what I like, and how I want it to look. No contractor of mine is going to get his hands all over my ledges, dagnabbit!

Crates5We placed crates all over our new kitchen in The Little Barn in lieu of cupboards. I personally like their uniqueness and the overall feel that they exude, as opposed to generic or modern cabinetry. Plus, I’m tidy. No object will ever be out of place in these babies!

Crates1My Jesus plaque hanging next to the thumbs up hanger is a little ode to the film Dogma. Did anyone else catch that?

Crates6Have a great day! Please go easy on me in the comment section! :-)))

    I think this new home will employ the highest number of crates to date ;) Which is great! Everyone should have a few. They are cheap, practical and look awesome!

    Nice!

  • Choose love. Thank you all for the love on my previous post. Grief is an awful thing that each and every one of us go through. I'm so thankful for this amazing community of wonderful people. I know I haven't been very present on it lately (or probably too present to some of you), but much has changed and I'm trying to focus more on "real life" as opposed to these beautiful, tiny squares that offer us snippets into other worlds. That's not to say that I find @Instagram any less important! I still consider it to be a vital part of social media and love it to death. I'm merely going through personal stuff. I plan to return to posting daily once things have settled down over here. Until then, keep showing me photographs of your lives. I cherish such views. (Here's a picture from last week's engagement session.)
