Found Us Some Old Crates Today

We were drivin' by an old bulb farm today and just outta the corner of our eyes we saw a stack of old bulb crates for sale. There they were abandoned....we just had to help em'. So we piled as many as we could into the SUV and found them a new home in our warehouse. We hit the internet right away lookin' for some good uses for them. Here's what we came up with...

A Fab dresser made with wood reclaimed from crates....

A crate used as a side table next to a chair...
An entire wall unit made with crates...looks pretty elegant don't cha think? In a rustic sorta way.

A rolling storage crate...painting it white adds a mod twist.

Of course crates hung as shelves on the wall....

Who says crates have to be used inside? After all their original use was for the outdoors....

This small crate planted with grass is a simple statement in a room full of white. LOVE it!!!

Til next time junk sistas!
