Shipping Crate Desk Along Side My Winter Mantel… Very Cozy!


OK… this is my second post of the day!  (not normal for me…lol)

In my last post… I showed you my new shipping crate desk I built.

Well… it rained everyday as I worked on this thing… for like 9 days or so straight.


So… what did I do to help with my cabin fever when I got through building?


I rearranged the ol’ furniture and stylized a little bit!  FUN!

My neighbor called me a couple of weeks ago and gave me this…

A huge shipping crate!  Yesss!

After thinking about it for a few minutes…
I knew exactly what I wanted to do… a computer desk.

Natural, Textured, Artsy, Rustic Winter Mantel 2013


Is that title loaded or what?? LOL! 

Anywho… I finally finished my winter mantel!  Yay!

I was in the process of working on it when my neighbor called me up about a week ago and asked me if I wanted a big shipping crate.

Of course, I said yes and started devoting all my time to it (post coming soon)… Soooo, I had to put the mantel on hold.

But… finally… I got back on track and finished it up.

I love this mantel display because I actually had to create some art for it…

which is always fun to do!!

So… here is my Natural, Textured, Artsy, Rustic Winter Mantel!

Let’s start with the woven art I created for my display…
