I love wood crates. I’ve pinned lots of ideas for using them. I just finished two for my home.
This first one is the “Mess Containment Station” which holds bibs and cloth wipes to clean up my boys after meals.
I bought the crate at the craft store and stained and stenciled it myself. I learned a lot about wood stain in the short amount of time it took to stain the thing. Also, don’t use freezer paper on wood. It leaves residue that I’m still trying to get off.
This crate was saved from the burning pile. I sanded the letters most of the way off and then stained it.
I don’t love the way dozens of varied books’ spines and colors look. I think storing some of them in a crate helps it look more controlled and less disordered.
Have you ever rescued a wood crate?
