The Pop Shop

Is it just me or is this random space above my refrigerator super awkward? Some people have fabulously functional cabinets above their fridge, me…. not so much.

The solution to getting rid of this awkwardness: I wasn’t exactly sure. All I knew is that I had to add  something… anything really.

That’s when I stumbled upon these vintage crates @ the Kane County Flea Market in St. Charles, Illinois. For ten bucks each, I couldn’t pass them up. Plus, they seemed fitting. Pepsi +  Pop Shop + Refrigerator = some type of relation, maybe… a little?

I stacked ’em up and added some budget friendly accessories I had laying around the house.

When I put it all together, I was happy to say goodbye to the awkward space and hello to our new and improved “Pop Shop”.

Twenty bucks later, I was happy with the new look and even happier that this space filler didn’t break the bank.
Cheers to less awkwardness…
…and a brand new Pop Shop!
How do you decorate above your refrigerator? Any other tips or tricks I may be missing?

    Just wanted to let ya’ll know that I found this blog a few weeks ago and have enjoyed every post! I live in a small apartment with limited character and have been doing DIY projects on small furniture and art pieces ever since I moved in two years ago. I felt particularly excited when I saw this post because I found an antique TNT box at an antique barn in Asheville last year and use it on top of my fridge to hold wine/wine glasses and all my “bar” stuff. Love it!
    Please keep up the good work, ladies! You have inspired me!
