I love the rustic feel these old soda boxes have as they also function as shelves for these awesome jars for sewing supplies. This is such a creative idea + I love the use of the vertical space. If you have a small home, then using your vertical space is essential like I said in my post about making your home look more expensive on a dime. Shelving and vertical space is the smart way to go.
