a good idea..

{fabulous shop in St Emilion, photo taken by moi}

Bonjour from a sunny but chilly SW France,

Hope that you had a nice weekend. We spent yesterday afternoon at a furniture auction but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

Last weekend we bought a lot of wine cases as we thought that they would make good storage, as shown in the photo above.

I particularly liked the idea of making a set of drawers with them or perhaps even a serving tray like this.

We have quite a few boxes and wine box ends so any ideas that you have would be gratefully received...

Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

  1. Love your picture of the shop through the open purple door! Just a tantalising glimpse inside of artefacts perfect for the maison francaise...

  2. I love the drawer idea. The one you shown here is wonderful. You are so lucjy to have found the wine crates. Hope you are keeping warm.

  3. Would take a case of the Chateau Ausone...hopefullyb it is a 1982...

  4. Love both these ideas - if there were French wine cases on hand in Aus i would take both in my house.

  5. Bothe wonderfulideas which I adore!

  6. Great ideas - wish I had some wine cases. I particularly like the tray idea.

  7. Both ideas are really cute! Can't wait to see what you scored at the auction! Vanna

  8. Love the tray! I used a bunch of wine crates once and took them apart and covered the top of a table in them. The table had a little lip around it. I glued them down and then used a dark wood stain, it was Gorgeous!!! Good luck with your projects!


  9. Love the tray just beautiful!

    I have an Artful Offering and great interview on my site.You will love it!
