MILK BOTTLE CARRIER REPURPOSED


Here is a great find.  I was at a garage sale in town and found this old galvanized metal carrier.  I'm guessing maybe it was originally for milk bottles?

Anyway, as soon as I saw it, I KNEW I just HAD to have it for the farm.
I also knew immediately how we'd use it...


...as a wine bottle carrier!  So when we have friends over for dinner, inside or outside on the property, we can load up a few bottles of wine and carry them to the table.  It somehow seems appropriate for the country.

Got Wine?

What a great find! And what a great way to use it now. So creative you are. I love it. Now I need to go to some yard sales. There are always some in St. Elmo in Tn. on the way to the market, but I am always in a hurry and can't stop. I will need to make time now. They always have some good stuff there.

I like your milk carrier conversion to a wine carrier.
This would make an awesome utensil holder once a bottom was placed on it.
Nice find!

I think you could also put vases in the holders and make a beautiful flower arrangement.

...just found your site today!!!

None of my milk carriers are that stylish!!!!! Now I'm on the lookout for a prettier one.

I wish I had you eye and flair for things like this. Nice!

Ha, thanks. It's just the luck of the draw. I always think of the things that are out there right now that I could use but I don't know about them. Then I just figure that whenever I show up wherever it is, whatever I find is what was meant to be, ha.

1st Man said...

Yay, I saved you money today!! LOL! Thanks! :-)

1st Man said...

You never know what you'll find. I think about this one and remembered that i actually drove passed it and then turned around and went back. :-)

1st Man said...

Dang, first I tick of Jambaloney and now you've got me on your &%#@ list, LOL!!!!

You have my word I'll keep my eye out in future trips. :-)

1st Man said...

I thought about that too! But we did something else with our utensil storage and I thought it would be nice to carry wine bottles out to the outdoor dining area...or other random spots on the property, haha.

1st Man said...

Well now that is a great idea too. Hmmm....I could use it for that in it's "off time" huh? Thanks! And by the way, WELCOME to you! thanks for stopping by and commenting, hope you'll come back. :-)

1st Man said...

If I can ever find more, I might just have to stock up to share, ha. Thanks for commenting!

1st Man said...

I never even thought about other styles. I guess it makes sense they had/have different ones.

1st Man said...

Yeah, I wondered actually if it might even be a newer one, but I don't know. I love it either way, ha.

1st Man said...

You are sweet. It's a special gift, ha. Just kidding, I think Mom taught me how to look for things like this. Luv ya!
