Are you a multitasker? If multitasking was an illness, then I’d have a terminal case of it. I’m always doing two things at once, and I try to make my farmhouse projects do more than one thing, too.
No lazy projects in my house – they all have to work hard to earn their keep.
Does this rustic shelf look familiar?
Well, it started out as the prototype for the base of my DIY rustic handled crate.
It was just a dry run to see how to put it together.
I wanted to find a use for it though, so I turned it into a display centerpiece. I plan to use it on my coffee table that’s waiting for a makeover. But in the meantime, I found a way to use it in my guest room …
I used it to hold packs of flowers I’ll be planting soon.
As if it hadn’t done enough already, I needed a new shelf for my bathroom, and it occurred to me that the drawer would work perfectly.
The only thing I needed to do was add D-ring hangers on the bottom of it and hang it up.
It can hold up to five pint-size mason jars, but I only used three to hold cotton swabs, bath salts, and cotton balls.
More jars would fit on the top of it too.
The jars look so pretty against the backdrop of the rustic wood.
I’ve added these adorable galvanized handled lids to my online shop. They are also available in red and black.
I think if I put my mind to it, I could find even more ways to use it. And I just may try! 🙂
If you have any more ideas for it, I’d love to hear them.
Please share them in the comments below!
Are there any farmhouse projects you’ve made that can be used more than one way?
