Fabric Lined Milk Crate



On top of the refrigerator is the space I have designated to hold the kids school lunchboxes.

The crazy, cluttered look it produces has been getting on my nerves just a little too much lately and I decided to come up with a way to store the lunchboxes - with a  little vintage, farmhouse flair.
 

A few years ago I picked up this black, chipped metal milk crate.



 
Yesterday I sewed together a simple fabric liner.


It's now the perfect place to stash lunchboxes!


Have a great day,

Robin

  2. Aren't lunch boxes the most ugly things? I usually toss the kids lunch bags under the sink on weekends. Your basket is a much prettier solution!

  3. No way! That is too cute. I have a lunchbox on my kitchen counter this very minute and I hate looking at it. Good solution!
