The little shelf sitting next to Sherry’s back door just wasn’t any fun to look at, she tells us over at Upcycle Addict.  After living with it for a while, she decided it was time to build something that would function as both storage and a place to sit down in the mudroom.  Instead of purchasing new materials, Sherry decided to use what she had on hand, and this old crib was a good starting point.

At Design, Dining + Diapers, Taryn was putting together a pretty Autumn vignette.  “After having it almost complete I felt that it was lacking a statement piece, so I went into my garage to see what I had to work with,” she says.  In the garage, a simple piece of stained wood caught Taryn’s eye, and inspiration struck.
