Vintage Storage?

I have finished the "Vintage Storage" crates!
Remember them in their "Avant" stage.
Here is the half way point~ waiting for them to dry.
Oh, yes, they are stacked four crates high in this photo.

There are several views of the sides... each side is
different, of course.
I like the aged look of the application.

Apres:
And here they are a bit embellished and in place in my petit studio.
The Fun of Reusing

I wrapped some bits of tulle' around the wooden posts of the crates.
I wanted to keep them fairly free of adornment.
Bits

Bits of tags for quick identification of the crate contents.
Wallpaper Fun

Final view, a bit blurry. The insides were kept clean... easy viewing of contents.
Vintage/New Storage

I have loved the crates in Anthropologie stores for years. Now I finally have my own!
If you want to make them I am happy to help where ever I can :)
