Milk Jar Collection Storage
Over the past few years, I've become a collector of vintage milk jars (as if I need more quirky items to collect). I started my collection when I went to Steamboat Springs, Colorado for MusicFest several years ago. I just wanted a little souvenir from the local antique store. Since then, I've picked up a few here and there at antique stores. I love using them placed around the house with fresh flowers! They've just got so much more character than a regular glass vase... This weekend, I purged my kitchen and reorganized some of the cabinets, so I decided to put all of my milk jars in the same place (instead of six). My grandmother had given me this wooden crate, and I decided that it would fit perfectly in a lower cabinet and serve as a "drawer" for my collection. This DIY project was a real doozy - I attached felt pads to the bottom corners of the crate. The End. Now I have easy access to all of my milk jar options!
