This shipping crate sideboard (below) has been blogged about for years. I’ve never heard anything more about it. It doesn’t appear that it has ever been reproduced. Too bad. I love it. According to Design Squish it was designed by Linda Jose.I just recently stumbled upon the up-cycled milk crate sideboard (below) on the Desire to Inspire blog. I would style it to be lighter and brighter than it is styled here but I love the concept. It doesn’t look the the milk crates hold anything which is too bad but it is a nice conversation piece and a handy sideboard. The best discovery from searching around for up-cycled milk crate furniture is that I stumbled upon Combo Colab and their XTOOL (below). You must watch their kickstarter campaign video. Their campaign is fully funded and is now closed. I LOVE this simple design. Great colors too. I’d love to have one of these as a side table or put two together to act as a coffee table. I hope they become available for purchase sometime soon.
And don’t even get me started on their truck-a-float project.
I got the images above from this article in Maine Today. Go and get some art! “Proceeds from this fundraiser benefit Goodwill services across New England; helping people achieve personal stability, engage in the community, and create a more sustainable environment.”
This image above and the first image in this post can be found on my decorate Pinterest board with links back to the original source (sometimes).
I heard this recording of Use Me by Bill Withers when I was secondhand shopping today at Wear House. Gawwhd! It is beyond. It is a celebration of life. Especially this live performance. The audience is part of the performance. You need to listen to the whole thing. Stop and listen. And then if you have time watch this video of Ain’t No Sunshine. So good.
