Reclaimed Wood Display Organizer with Mixed Elements

It was time to get GadgetSponge Garage a little less dense of items not too long ago so I started thinking about how I could put a lot of small items together in one piece.  And that's how this piece was born....

I had these old fence pieces from a good friend and the rest of the wood bits were leftovers from previous projects.  From there it was about incorporating different items into the grid design of the wood.  

A Scrabble gameboard and old records were great backing for some of the cubbies.

Some vintage tin doolhouse pieces were fitting for others and even a vintage Vornado fan face plate for another.

I've got an assortment of wooden blocks, figures, and general pieces for days and these specific ones spoke to me for this creation.  The vintage kitchen container was a great fit to hide or store away other items.

The vintage Prince Albert tin can hold pens and pencils.  The small measuring cup can work to hold even the smallest of items.

I couldn't resist adding the little vintage tin mailbox on the side as if the side of this creation was a tall building and this mailbox sat at the corner of the intersection.

A front drawer from an antique sewing machine cabinet sits in front of the cubby with the Vornado fan face plate.

You can see this item in person at Timeline Antiques & Collectibles Mall in Shreveport, LA or in my ETSY SHOP.
