It Will Be Mine #3

Janet from Today's Fabulous Finds made these amazing little crates a couple months ago, and I've been dreaming of them ever since. I came across them again while I was posting my tutorial for the jute rope handles and was reminded that I need to make these. Stat.

Lovely pegboard desk organization from House on Ashwell Lane. I'd love to have something like this in my office! Very well done.

I remember when I was at BYU a few years ago these Capri Sun bags were all the rage. God bless House of Hepworths for this great tutorial that I plan to use sometime this summer! Adorable.

Joy at Thrifty Parsonage Living was one of my first followers and always leaves such sincere comments. I just love having blog friends like her! Aaaaannndd she talented! Check out her chair makeover. You wouldn't believe the pink atrocity she started with. :)  I've done dining chairs, but I'm still scared to tackle any upholstering that involves sewing, too...Joy inspires. Maybe I'll tackle one after our move.

And it wouldn't be a "Gonna Make It" round-up without another Ana White project, right? I saw this child's sling chair today, and I'm heading to my garage immediately after posting this to see if I have the supplies already on hand! They are SO adorable! And we all know I'm trying to clean out my fabric stash... :)




  1. Thanks Charlie, for featuring my chair makeover and your kind comments!

  2. I love that crate and the orgianizer! I was thinking of having a go at one of those pegboards for my daughters room! I love that chair makeover too! X

  3. Hello Charlie! :)

    These are all such wonderful projects~ I can see why you like them so much! That chair is so amazing, and those ruffles! Oh my! And that sweet crate with the rope handles~ heavenly beautiful! The pegboard is darling, and I love how it was painted pink. It goes perfectly with the pink lamp. :)

    I really like these "it will be mine" posts you do! So fun! :)

    How was your Memorial Day weekend? I hope it was fun for you all, and that your week is going great. :)


  4. Thanks for featuring my paint stick crate, that's so nice of you! I love how you braided the jute for your crate handles, I'm going to try it on my next crate, great idea!
