Coke Crate Project

i was on pinterest...yes, i'm an addict and i admit it...but its not a problem!! i've been adding pictures to my coastal/beach board so that i can go back later and read the how to's...i found a picture of coral from pottery barn....

i love this...i wish i had all of it!!

Here is my version....its nothing in comparison to the original...for me it works...i don't have alot of money to spend on buying things because we only have 1 income...i love crafty, vintage things though! the coke crate was free...my husband found it under a house he was doing pest control on...the coral i bought at walmart...to me it was rather pricey for a piece of plastic...i think it was about $8 or more...i can't remember for sure because i bought 2 different ones....the smaller shells didn't come from the beach...i had to buy them! can you believe that?? they came from the everything is a dollar store in panama city beach...the large white one came in a pack i bought at marshalls for about $9.99..it was a large plastic bag full...the vase is a starbucks bottle...i added the twine, sand, and shells...the sand and shells for that project came from dollar tree...i had a left over sheet music page from my table project that i cut and stuck in the bottom left side...

here is the front view...i already had everything for this project...all the things were previously bought before hand...i love it...make sure you check out pinterest...you never know what inspiration you may find...

here is my edited pic...it looks alot better with my camera...i'll quit trying to be so lazy ;)


Peace, Love, & Joy

Gosh! I think you did a GREAT job on your display shelf. It has so much personality. I have an account at Pinterest but I haven't quite figured it out very well but I hear wonderful things about it.

Oh my gosh! I love this idea! Love it! Hmm? I could make one for one of my boys' room but decorate it for a boy. Hmm? My brain is working here. :D Thanks for sharing.

What a really great idea! I love old wooden crates, I use a few as a bookshelf in my living room.

I love that Coke crate. I saw the same coral at Walmart and thought it was too much. I want to try and make my own.
