Blogger Showdown: Reveal 1- Repurposed Coca Cola crate

Hi y'all!  Well, it's HERE! The first reveal for the "Rehash that Trash: Blogger Showdown"!  As per the Trash List, the first project was to be a repurposed project! (Happy Evey Dance)

 Behold. My humble yet AWESOME new desk organizer! I have posted before about my quest for organization.  De and E can both vouch for my scatterbrainy mind. I need help, y'all! 

I found this sweet piece at a garage sale for $10.  It started its new life in my home as entryway decor.  I had even found a cute glass Coke bottle to sit inside of it, but when I decided to find something to repurpose, I knew this vintage Coke crate was just the piece I needed.  

 Anyone else have way too many paintbrushes?  This isn't even half. (I know I have a craft hoarding problem.  I'm working on it.)

I also have way too many Mason Jars.  I figured they would do the trick and hold all my supplies in the slots of the crate neatly.  They did.  It rocks.  The crate also holds my larger sized acrylic paint bottles that don't fit in my other desk organizer.  This makes me super happy, as I had NO idea where to put them and they were simply sitting on my desk always in my way. 

So what do you think?! Did I win this challenge!?  Or did De? Go check out her piece but keep in mind how awesome MINE IS! :) I didn't even have to paint or do anything to it! It was perfect as it was! Word.  So leave a comment here and on her page letting us know who won the challenge! :) Keep in mind, sharing is caring! So, share our posts with your social media friends and encourage them to vote as well!

  1. Very cute! I'm a fan of all things vintage!

    1. Me too! Yay! But the real question is, who won the challenge?! lol

  2. Hi Evey! I'm all in for this challenge! Here's my conundrum: yours is repurposed with very little effort. Dee's is repurposed, barely (as the toy chest was originally made to both store toys AND sit on) but she cleaned it up. So... I think Dee's is prettier, but yours meets the criteria of 'repurposed' more clearly. You're the winner. Sorry Dee.

  3. Um, I think I'm going to have to consult Lara to see if moving something from one spot to another is within the official rules. And I'd love this if it was Pepsi!

  4. My daughter has repurposed the Coke crate into a spice cabinet. I like what you've done but I really like the little dog bed also... and maybe a teensy bit more. It's close, though. Really close. Sorry, Evey.

  5. I would have to go with Dee. I was actually looking for the before pic of the coke bottle flip and realized it was pretty much the same. Sorry Evey.

    1. LOL! It's Ok! ;) I would never paint an original piece of history like this! Sorry! ;)No hard feelings, I promise!

  6. I'm here to cast my vote! :-) I'm going with Dee on this one. I love them both but Dee's seems like it took a bit more effort to repurpose. Can't wait for next week's round! Keep at it ladies! ~ Stephanie @ Furniture Flippin'

  7. Smart idea and those crates are so versatile!


Hello! I LOVE comments! I try to get back to each one individually, especially when it's a question! If for whatever reason I don't, please always feel free to email me your questions and I will always write back!

My Favorite things!
