Handmade things are happy things. I love handmade gifts that have thought and meaning behind them. Today, a good friend, "J", stopped by to bring us a gift. He is extremely talented and made us 2 gorgeous shelves out of wooden wine boxes. Our other good friend "H" is a Sommelier and apparently has access to many wooden wine boxes. So, very talented "J" turns trash into treasure. He even hung them for me!
Fancy wine box #1; a nice spice rack for the kitchen:
I love the detail that he added inside the shelf.
He also added this cute little shelf that I put my vintage pigs on.
Fancy wine box #2; a nice shelf for my newly remodeled bedroom:
A side view with the original wine box rope handle.
There is actually a hidden shelf with a sliding door! This is the part that the wine bottle was package in.
I took down what I had there before and put in another place in the room because I though this fancy wine box shelf fit there perfectly!
So, today is a happy day, thank you J! I told him he needs to sell them on Etsy!
