Wine Crate Ottoman and Monday night TV

Whew!  Just about let this day get past without posting!  Can't let that happen!  So, it has been a busy day, but I watched my Monday night tv.  I love Mike and Molly and Two Broke Girls  on CBS!  Last week my husband and I built an ottoman. We had some wine crates that I love and have been turning over ideas for a couple of years trying to come up with the perfect use for them.  I saw an idea in O Magazine that was primo for the vino!

I bought a remnant of linen at a local antiques store a couple of months ago. I buy things without knowing what I will use them for but with a strong knowledge that I will one day!  I clipped it to a glass cutting board before painting the stenciled design for the cover.

Hey, see that little black and red thing with a key ring on it?  That is a little measuring tape. Rides in my purse all the time!

Mr. Shabby French Country Cottage Basement cut a board for the top and put casters on the bottom of the box.  We are regulars at Home Depot!!!  I padded the board with a double layer of foam, stapling it firmly all around.  And yes, as a matter of fact, I did scratch the table.  :)

I used black fabric paint and stenciled a fluer de lis on the fabric.

I glued and stapled the fabric to the underside of the lid for extra hold.  Staple guns are wonderful tools!

This is the right side of the box.  The logos and designs are impressed into the wood. 

We attached the top with hinges so it can be used for storage.  Throw all those newspapers from the floor into it when the door bell rings.

                                        Open wide!!!!  You can see the casters a little in this picture.

Stenciled top.  I love stenciling.  I just love painting. I had to make myself put the paint away.  I was looking around for things to stencil a fluer de lis onto.

                     This is the left side.  It still has the Import Label on it!  Pretty darn cool, I say!

   Ahhhhhh...........It works.     It sounds simple but really it truly very simple!
