Copy Caddy or Caddy Copy

I am gigglin like a goon... I was trying to decide on what I'd name my post and copy caddy or caddy copy got me so tickled I had to wait a few minutes to post.. Its so nice being easily amused LOL LOL
 I always wonder if the neighbors can see me thru the patio door from their back patio and if they can they surely must wonder why I am sitting here all alone in amused histerics laughing my head off..   No one has called 911 on me yet so maybe they cant see from all that distance away.. thank goodness

 anywhooooo  on with da show...

I have seen silver ware caddies all over blogland and I've wanted one real bad but didnt wanna spend the big bucks for it.  I love the one advertised at Pottery Barn but,, $79.00 NO WAY..

 I was looking around at reclaimed wood projects and decided to take a peek at the Anna White site. Sure enough she had done a caddy using a reclaimed soda box.. and then, Inspiration Struck.. I had something I could use afterall so mine would be Free..  wooohooo Free is my favorite.. AND it would work well in my kitchen AND I could use coffee beans as a filler AND everytime I grab a utensil it makes the scent of the coffee beans go up my nose AND it opened up a whole drawer in my kitchen .. I can sure use it for something else. .. I see this as a WIN WIN WIN WIN  ..

 so here's my Copy .. I love it..  this was large enough to hold my knives- forks- salad forks- teaspoons- ladle spoon ..   with the plates stacked in back , no one visiting will have to go thru my cabs to find stuff. Just grab a plate and silver and fill your plate..   
This is what I copied.   Many thanks to Anna White.com for the inspiration.
I'll be linking up with DebbieDoo's Copy Cat party as soon as she posts it..
HERE to go to the party

wow us wednesday party Here
Sizzle into Summer  Party Here 
thanks for coming to take a peek..
I welcome your visits with open arms and a smile on my face.

  1. Great idea, Sonny, and I love the way it looks on your counter with the dishes in the background! Nicely done! Even nicer that it didn't cost you anything. : )

  5. Hi Sonny,

    What a great silverware caddy!! You found a good inspiration photo and then made your own special version. I like the idea of the coffee beans -- wonderful aroma.

    I know what you mean about the hysterical giggling. :) If something takes me a certain way and I find it funny (even if no one else does) I can laugh for 30 minutes. The neighbors haven't called 911, but I think my husband or son might someday. :D

    How fun that you have a cabin in Sylva; that whole area is pretty. I like Dillsboro, as well. Thanks for your comments on my mosaics, Sonny, and have a great day!

    You did good! I still haven't tried a copy cat..

  29. I'm on my way out to my storage room in the barn. Think I just may have an old wooden shoeshine box that will be perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oops, I just remembered how hot it is. No going to storage for a while but will post what I find when I find it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ummm....I think your caddy is awesome and although the inspiration caddy is beautiful, yours has that Sonny warmth and Sonny detail that we've all grown to love.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Honestly, I like your version better, and um did you use a pallet? LOL.

    Very creative, and inventive. And good for you to use up something that you already have, instead of going out and buying it.

    I used to blog right beside the window of our ground level condo...the neighbours could hear my laughing and giggling when the windows were open, and they could see me...we crazy bloggers have to stick together.

    PS, snarky or not, I am looking forward to seeing that post you talked about.

  36. Hi, love the caddy and also love that you laugh hysterically. I find myself doing the same often while blogging. I really am not that funny, just easily amused. I always wonder if my neighbors laugh at me constantly snapping pics out my back door. Oh well, maybe they are easily amused also. Using the coffee beans is a great idea. Visiting from Debbiedoos.
