How To Turn A Vintage Crate Into A Coffee Table With Casters And New Rug

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend


Mother’s Day!

I got to sleep in until 8:45 and woke up to coffee & gifts in bed

from my favorite fellas,

what could be better!

We drove to the country & spent the day with family,

it was fantastic.

I write a lot about spending time in the country,

it is literally my favorite place on the planet.

On most Fridays these days I take the drive with my niece Aimee &  little guy Jack.

We hit a few farms, my favorite vintage shops and then….

D & D.

Yes, Dunkin Donuts,

 their iced coffee, yumm…

This shop & this shop are my favorites.

On one of our weekly trips we stopped by Northfound & Co.

It is new shop in Peconic & I just adore everything they sell.

I think an online store is coming soon,

be sure to like them on FB so you can be in the loop:).

As we drove up I spotted a large, very weathered & beautiful vintage crate.

I was told it was from Martha’s Vineyard & then the $.

I love the size


 how you can mix it with anything.

It is so versatile,

sometimes we even move it over for extra seating,

it is that sturdy.

    The casters are great…. we have used them on a few projects and they work beautifully. The rug is fab and so are you!
    Have a wonderful day!

  4. Makes me crazy that I can’t order Ballard Design rugs to Canada, boo hoo! Love it, looks beautiful!

  5. Just beautiful..all of it! Is that the blue/white indoor outdoor rug? It looks lighter in your pics than on the Ballard sight. Just thought I would ask before I made a purchase. Thank you.

    1. Hi Tiffani, I know it does look different, I think it is bc the one they show is the blueish one. Make sure you order the mineral/ivory. I LOVE this rug, for the $ it adds so much character to the space. Thanks so much for your kind comment:)!

  6. Beautiful! What a great way to turn a big, heavy crate into something you can roll around wherever you want! I just love all the floral touches you have in your photos. I’m going to put one of the pictures on Pinterest 🙂
