A Rustic Appliance Garage Project Idea
Ah, yes, the rustic approach to kitchen storage. It’s perfect for those who want to channel their inner Pioneer Woman, Chip, and Joanna Gaines. This project involves using reclaimed wood to create a rustic crate to store your small appliances.
Now, I don’t know about you, but when I hear “reclaimed wood,” I just think of wood that someone else has already used and discarded.
But apparently, it’s all the rage now.
So, let’s get started.
First, you need to build the crate. Attach the top, bottom, and sides using screws. And don’t worry about making it too perfect; imperfections are part of the charm of this rustic look. It’s like the wood is telling a story of a past life where it was a barn or a fence.
Next, attach the front lid to the frame box using hinges.
Make sure to install them properly, or you’ll have a wonky and crooked lid.
And nobody wants that.
Finally, keep the lid closed using a cup and eye hook. It’s like a little game of “find the cup” whenever you need to open it.
But if the rustic look isn’t your thing, don’t worry.
You can always add some shabby chic touches to it by distressing the wood or painting it a pastel color. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, add some stenciling or decoupage. Who knows, your small kitchen appliance storage solution might just become the centerpiece of your kitchen.
