I had such a fun “junkin'” afternoon. I started out at Vintage 615 where I found some fabulous, vintage metal trays and a precious old doily and some of those old calendar towels like Gran always had. A nice lady there told me about two more places nearby that I’d never heard of – 2Storeys Antiques and Carter’s Creek Antiques. All three of those places just made me feel good, happy. At 2Storeys I found a wonderful 7-Up pop bottle crate (oh the memories of emptying those out to fill up the coolers at Croley’s Corner!) and a Fire King plate to go with the collection I’m building. Everything was reasonably cheap!
I had almost as much fun when I got home “de-junkin'” a cramped, crowded drawer and an equally cramped, crowded utensil caddy in my kitchen.
I utilized some unused space in one of my wall cabinets.
The cast of characters:
-The two vintage/antique metal trays
-Command Adhesive strips and hooks
-A couple of magnetic clips and hooks
I followed the directions and put the Command Adhesive strips on the backs of my metal trays and put the little adhesive hooks on the fronts.
While the sticky things were getting good and stuck to their new surfaces, I rummaged around the cluttery drawer and dug out some items that are typically hard to find in there and, of course, were taking up precious space. I pulled a few items out of the utensil caddy relieving some of that crampy space.
I stuck the metal trays to the inside of the cabinet doors. I strategically organized the items onto the trays via hooks and clips.
I felt so smart when I stood back and surveyed my finished project!
