Now I have a place to store bulk foods without taking up my already spoken for shelf and drawer space. :)
I used old drawer pulls I saved from our previous kitchen cabinets and then, screwed both ends in crooked. I'm just talented like that, I suppose. Hah!
I free-handed the word "nourish" with the same paint used on our dining chairs and console table and then I distressed it and stained over it to soften it.
This was a scrap/leftover wood project, costing $0 using material I had on hand.
I cut leftover 1/4" plywood to fit the front and back panels as well as the bottom. I nailed the bottom in, and simply glued and staple-gunned the front and back panels in with 9/16" staples (the same ones I'm using for sofa repairs).
I free-handed the word "nourish" and used the blunt end of my paintbrush to rub off the dried paint from the edges of the letters. Then I lightly sanded the surface in the direction of the grain to further remove some of the paint from the exposed edges. I stained over the wood twice to soften the sharpness of the paint.
I've seen the word "EAT" in other kitchens, but that command doesn't fit what I want for our space. I thought, "If I could label our kitchen, give meaning to this place, what would I want it to be?" "Nourish" was the first word that came to mind, nourish in lower-case, a gentle reminder, like a whisper. I wrote the word on the bin to remind me the function of our kitchen, and to help me remember that anything we put in that crate is extra for us and is sharable. It's handy, in a way, to have it next to our door. :)
