Crate and Barrel set up shop in Salt Lake late last year and I could not have been more thrilled! I grew up with Crate and Barrel. Mike and I registered there for our wedding gifts! It was a fun and nostalgic walk threw memory lane when I first visited and I wanted EVERYTHING! This Stendig Calendar was irresistible! It’s easy to see why, right?
A few weeks ago I scored this amazing find on ksl.com (local classified ads like craigslist but 100 times better!) I’ve been looking for filing cabinets to go in this space in my kitchen. I thought the idea of filing cabinets would work great for this space. Tons of new storage and I loved the idea of adding an industrial/utility look inside my home. My house is pretty eclectic so I was excited to see how it would look. I’d been looking for months when I came across these salvaged metal bank drawers! BINGO! How freakin’ perfect! When I sent my husband the link to get his opinon he was like ” How on earth did you find blue cabinets!” I didn’t even realize they were a dark teal blue hue! My screen made them look more green. I had fully intended on painting any cabinets I found to a teal tone but alas…they were already my signature color!
This find was such a steal! I paid $100 for all three cabinets and they fit the space perfectly! But as you can see I had those ubber lame outlets to deal with! Seriously builders! What the heck! Enter Stendig calendar…
I positioned it just so that no plugs show! I used 3M Command strips to stick it to the wall! A level was a must to make sure it was perfectly straight! Wish you could have seen me try to hang it by myself! Straight up comedy! I recommend getting a friend to help! This Calendar is HUGE!!!
Love me a huge calendar!!
p.s. If you live in the Salt Lake area and want these filing cabinets in your home, the seller has more! He has this shade and gray! They might still be available. If you want me to locate his number just email me!
