Happy Things

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!

Thank you! I am super excited about it. I keep going in each room and looking at them.
