Farmhouse Style Storage

Hey lovelies!  If you follow Reinvented on Facebook, and you totally should, then you know that I have been decluttering like mad this month.  I spent an entire day cleaning out our rec room above the garage; it felt so good to get rid of stuff.  My next step was to organize what’s left with some farmhouse style storage.

I bought this old crate for $5 at an online auction.  It was clearly well used, and a little dirty.  Someone had used one side as a spray paint “studio”, so the original finish wasn’t going to work for me.

After a thorough cleaning with some all purpose spray, I decided to add a VERY rustic coat of creamy white paint, using a stencil brush.   A regular paint brush is meant to lay down a smooth coat of paint, but the stiff bristles of a stencil brush are perfect for a rustic look.  I poured a small amount of paint in the cap, and refilled it as I went.

To create this rustic finish, lightly dab the brush in the paint and add color in a purposely haphazard way.

After painting, I decided some old metal typography was in order.  (are those your 3 FAVORITE WORDS too?)

Now have some farmhouse style storage in which to stash our stuff, perfect for our rustic rec room.

Old wooden crates and leftover paint for the win!

Are you organizing this January too?  What spot in your house needs the most help?  Our basement would win anyone’s “messiest room” contest, so that’s up next.
