Today my son and I had one of our dates on Route 66. We ate at the Golden Light Café and then shopped at a couple of our favorite antique stores. I found a crate I fell in love with along with a small metal chalkboard. I want to use them for some photo shoots in the future, but I also thought it would make a great toy box for my dog Izzy. She has been eating pieces off of her wicker basket so it needed replaced.
I love love love this crate.
I used a thumb tack to attach the cool chalkboard to the crate from the inside.
I think what made me fall in love with my crate is the nails. I love old nails and wood with patina.
Izzy isn’t too sure about reaching into her new box to get her toys but she can do it.
I love when I find old pieces that draw me in and beg me to take them home. Especially when they work out as well or better than I had planned in my head.
I don’t think I will mind picking up her toys and putting them away because I really like looking at this crate. Problem is I put them away and she usually takes them right back out.
