It’s a good day when I feel like my time was well spent and I can look back and see all that I achieved – in big ways and small. I wasn’t planning on posting but once this week as I am trying to get projects around here done, particularly our kitchen remodel. But, I couldn’t resist the urge when I had this pile of vintage soda crates sitting on my step staring at me. And…when I had the idea to make a soda crate stand, I had to do it!
Can you blame me? When an idea hits, you run with it! I knew this would be simple to do and wouldn’t take much of my time. However, let me fill you in on a few things first.
It has been 10 looong months of working in our kitchen. My pots and pans are, for the most part, still in boxes. My laundry area has been a wreck as we waited for months for a plumber to show up. When he finally did, there were leaks
Are you form-over-function or function-over-form? I am the latter for sure, which is why I have fun creating my functional pieces from repurposed finds. Earlier this week, I showed you how I took several flea market finds and created farmhouse decor, but I also promised to show you what I would do with that vintage soda crate in those finds. Check it out…

Certainly that vintage soda crate has potential just as-is. You could use it mounted to the wall as a rustic shelf, you could fill it with your collections on a table top for a vintage display, or even as a planter. But, when over the last few months, I was inspired by a replica of a vintage soda crate foot stool by Decor Steals.
I thought to myself, “Certainly, I could make that”. tsk.
So, off to my stash of gorgeous legs I went to find me a set, (no made in China stuff here!) and here is what I pulled out.
