Leather Belt Crate

Howdy!  I am happy to have another contributor post that I shared at My Repurposed Life to show you...otherwise you would be getting, "Nothing. Zilch. Nada." (If you can name the movie that comes from then I am impressed, and you probably have small kids, or grandkids) :)

We have been in Utah running a Marathon this past weekend (which I am happy to say, despite a 6 hour delay because of weather leaving Colorado, we made it safe and the race went surprisingly well considering injuries and such, it stinks getting old!)  We got home late last night and I fly out early Thursday morning to attend the SNAP conference in SLC, which is where we ran the race!  So yeah, projects...on hold. 

Here is my Leather Belt Crate...
This Leather Belt Crate is a perfect way to add color and texture to your home decor!  A simple and stylish repurpose project!

I LOVE it!  I made it as part of my Hall Closet Makeover  so it is probably familiar to you.  It has been so perfect for holding things, and I love the color and texture the leather belts add.  
For a tutorial on how to make your own just pop over and check it out!  I am sure you have a stash of old belts just laying around waiting for a project!  Ha ha, ok maybe not, but garage sales and thrift stores do!

Have a wonderful week!


I will be linking to these parties and Savvy Southern Style

  2. I am glad you made it to the marathon!! You are amazing!! How did you do??? And how cool is this crate...has such a mid century contemporary vibe! I LOVE it!!! I bet you could do a planter with belts!!!! Wishing you a great end to your week Mindi! Nicole xoxo

  3. I loved this crate the first time i saw it, and I think I love it more now!! Glad everything went well with the marathon - it DOES suck getting old. HAVE FUN AT SNAP!!!!

  4. I wish I could have gone to SNAP. Sounds like fun. I see your lovely face in the first photo (slider) on their main page! Woo-Hoo! :)

    I like the way you used the belts and thrift stores carry A LOT if them. What do you store in the bin?
