Coke Bottle Crate

in Antiques,Thrift Store Finds

I was so excited to find this. Sometimes it’s nice to find something and not have to do anything to it.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my spray paint. But when something’s already perfectly painted it ‘s hard to pass it by.

It was $11. I don’t know of that’s a good price or not, but I don’t care. It’s worth $11 to me.

I had these bottle laying around the house. Don’t they look at home now?

Wouldn’t this be fun to hold soda bottles for parties?

I sat it on the counter to take pictures, but then noticed it looked great next to the white pitcher and blue vase.

So I decided to keep it there for a while. A while could mean 2 days or 2 months to me. But I like it at this moment so it’s staying put.

I can picture your carrier and bottles sitting on a red checked table cloth with white Daisies in some of the bottles. It would make a pretty (and oversized) centerpiece!

It is a great vintage find. I remember drinking coke in the bottle and putting salty peanuts in the bottles when I was a kid. olive♥

I love it, I almost feel cheated when I don’t have to paint, decorate, or upholster something. It would be great for a party and convenient too. I am visiting from Debbiedoos.

That is a very neat find. I can think of a dozen ways to use this, it’s so versatile! Half sodas, half utensils for a party! Organize my craft supplies! Etc…etc.. I like the color as is too!

This would look great in the center of a table with flowers in the bottles.
